This broke down the basic laws for my state pretty well.

Kali, as in all other things is different.

I can agree with that, just stating a finding. As we all know, the laws are very confusing.

It appears that any vehicle in my state with a payload greater than 4k used commercially is considered a commercial vehicle and requires a DOT number. So if you use a Toyota Tacoma at your shop to run errands, tow a small trailer and it's logo'd it would not require DOT numbers

That's not what it says at all. Go reread it and try again.

If I were you I wouldn't be making any bets on anything. "IF" I was in biz I wouldn't be using a 44 year old truck and a home built trailer.
Take out the passenger seat and install a functioning RV toilet. Should be all set then.

There are times that a med card is needed but no CDL. CDL's always require med cards. There is no if's' and's' or butt's. (spelled wrong on porpoise)

as a guy that works from greenwich to ridgefield i find wilton pd to be one of the worst around for pulling over trucks. They check everything on them and will take you off the road if they even think you are over weight. just a friendly warning stay away from the lot on the corner of rt 7 and 106 the like to set up a state dot check there about once a month and the town is there almowt everyday
