Seal rite sr 700 CDL?

I have a seal rite sr700 sealcoating trailer. It has dual 7k lb axles so gvw is 14,000lbs. If I'm towing with a F250 do I need a CDL? I NEVER load it fully bc sealer weighs about 10lbs a gallon and trailer empty prob weighs 3500. My truck is rated 9000lbs so I load max 500 gallons so I'm not over. BUT with the GVW of trailer being 14,000lbs am I over by DoT laws just bc it is rated at 14000lbs?

Does the trailer have a 14k GVW or GVWR?

If it's GVWR then you don't need a CDL to tow it with a F250. I am presuming that sealer is not hazmat.

GVWR so I guess I'm good. No hazmat just have to carry paperwork on the sealer, so they know exactly what I'm carrying. Thank you for your help.

I guess I will point it out again.

That is completely inaccurate.
