Don't need a cdl. Most likely will get trailers brought down to 9,999 anyway

Yup 25,999 for truck and 10,000 for trailer. Now if truck is over 10k need dot numbers. Any trailer over 10 requires one regardless of truck gvwr.

Personally if you ask 10 different people you'll get 10 different answers. I think its stupid I can drive a 25,999 750 pulling a 9,999 skid trailer. But to have a 9,900 truck and 14k trailer you're not supposed to do it

The way I understood it, as long as my total weight and combined gvw is under 26,000 I am fine..but that was that officer.. Ask another you'll get another answer.

You were told wrong and that dealer is an idiot.

What size side walls he have on his trailer. They must be 6 feet to get that much in. With 22 yards in a trailer your looking at a rough weight of 16500 which no dump trailer, without going to a dual tandem setup can legally haul that weight. we have a 7x 12 and fit 10 yards in it with a 4 foot side wall.
