We don't need health certs to be traveling in state. The stops that the DOT was doing last month here had nothing to do with coggins. They were ticketing those that didn't have proper DOT paperwork and licensing and inspections. It varies from state to state.

in CA , if your truck is above a certain weight, and the trailer is over a certain weight , you must have the commercial license and must have the sticker on the truck door. Or you get one heck of a fine into the thousands of dollars.. EVEN if you do not haul for hire.

They'll pull over truck and trailers but not the crazy people that drive the uhual's or big honkin RV's?

I'll need to look into if my truck plus my mom's 28' stock trailer would hit that limit. Depending on if I get stationed to somewhere horse friendly, I might be taking the 4 horses plus my mom with me. She found out she's allergic to pretty much anything green and growing so she's hoping I get stationed out in the middle of nowhere so she can "dump" the horses on me and just trade me room and board for watching the horses when I go flying.

What Nobody has mentioned is, CDL'S are federal, not state regulated. As are the laws controlling them.
And yes, plated or weighing over 26k puts you into CDL'S unless an RV. < which is whack.

I've carried a CDL class A since I was 18, just missed the grandfather. Also, my dually is tagged for 11k (the highest available the state offers with out getting power plates, which I may do) and trailer is tagged for 12k. We can all do math...

That's what we checked on. That is true, IF it's for commerce. If you have a rig that size and are just going to a trail ride or a possibly a show for yourself, that's when you don't.

I would have to argue that at most shows I lose money rather than making it. LOL! I spend close to $300 for my daughter to win 5 little pieces of satin valued at maybe $3.00 each.
