Axle rating means nothing here.
Where is "here"?

I have been told by various trailer dealers and state troopers that in Kansas axle rating determines trailer gvwr. So two 5200lb axles is 10,400lbs. Now lets assume you have an F450 with a GVWR of 16,000. You're now at 26,400lbs. And according to the flow chart you posted in another thread, that DOES require a Class A CDL.

Now lets say where you're located, you can derate a trailer to 9900lbs. You can pull it with a truck up to 25,999 lbs (or 26,000, dont recall if the cutoff is 26k or 26,001). Your combined GVWR would be 35,900, and you would need nothing more than a standard drivers license.
