With the governments money grab don't be so sure you won't get pulled over. Landscapers are prime targets as most are clueless to the regulations.

There will be a change in North Carolina's DOT numbers laws that will be enforced starting on Dec 1, 2013. The new rules state that any commercially operated intrastate vehicle must obtain a USDOT number if:

• Has a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR), a gross combination weight rating (GCWR), a gross vehicle weight (GVW) or gross combination weight (GCW) of 26,001 pounds or more: or
• Is designed or used to transport more than 16 passengers, including the driver, or
• Is used in transporting hazardous materials in a quantity requiring placarding pursuant to 49 C.F.R. Parts 170 through 185.

MN's regs are even more restrictive than that. 10K lbs or more GVW and you are on the hit list.
Ridiculous. I run a Dakota V8 with a 14' enclosed.....so I get lumped in with the straight trucks and semis actually carrying heavy cargo.

More than likely.



This is good advice. lol



Horse hockey.

DOT numbers are for commercial vehicles. A recreational vehicle by definition is not commercial.

And the DOT number no longer applies in Michigan under 26,001. And a bunch of others.
Don't even listen to this nonsense. He thinks that a law in Michigan is universal. He does not even know the federal law. Many of us have DOT #s, been through the audits and know whats required.

I'm sure you can point out to me where I stated Michigan law is applied universally to all 50 states.

After that, you can point out what in that post is factually incorrect with links to back it up.

In the mean time, I won't be holding my breath.

Hugs and kisses!
