You're good as long as you're truck and trailer don't exceed 26 combined. Don't let anyone else tell you other wise.

People put trailers at 9990 for trucks over 26k. Then you won't need cdl

Some people are misinformed and think you need a cdl for any trailer over 10k

B Wise Ultimate Dump Trailer (Has anyone purchased one?)

In the state of pa if the trailer is rated over 9900 you have to register it combination weight so if your truck weighs 9000 and your trailer weights 14k you would need to register at 23k which mean for me biannual state inspections and 300 a year registration. Still need us dot number but that is free. The 26 k CDL is pretty much nation wide as far as I can tell.

If the truck is over 26k it requires a cdl. The trailer looks good but a lot of extra weight to take away from payload

My truck info is this:

2005 Chevy Silverado Weight 3500 SRW
GVWR -- 9900
GAWR -- 4800 (FRONT)
GAWR -- 6500 (REAR)
GCWR -- 16,000
MAX TRAILER WGT -- 9600
PAYLOAD -- 3661

INFO ON HITCH
MAX TRAILER WGT -- 7500
TONGUE WGT -- 1000
WEIGHT DIST HITCH -- 12,000
TONGUE WGT -- 1500

INFO ON RECIEVER
MAX GVWR -- 10,000
MAX TRAILER WHT -- 1000



To figure out the wgt of my vehicle i took GVWR (9900) - PAYLOAD (3661) = 6231

OR figure it out this way
GCWR (16,000) - GVWR (9900) = 6100


I THINK THE MAX TRAILER WGT I CAN TOW IS 9,900 IF THE TRUCK IS TOTALLY EMPTY AND THE TRAILER IS FULLY LOADED.
GCWR 16,000 Fully loaded truck & trail
-GVWR 9,900 Fully loaded truck
= 6,100 what i could tow.

GCWR 16,000 Fully loaded truck & trail
-The weight of a completely empty truck
-6231
=9,769 what i can tow if truck is empty.

What is shows in the owners manual is
9,600 for Maximum Trailer Wgt

so I believe with the B Wise trailer ( I am considering the 16') it is 5,420lbs dry
so if I have 16,000lbs minus the 6,100lbs for the weight of the truck gives me 9,900lbs for the trailer and load.
Take 9,900 minus the 5,420lbs weight of the trailer. I think that means I could only put in it 4,480lbs of grass, sand, loam, mulch ect.

I was thinking B Wise because I was hoping for it to be my first and maybe last dump trailer for awhile. (a long while)

I guess I am misinformed because my state clearly requires a cdl if the trailer is over 10000 pounds. Which is why the dump trailer I just ordered from cam superline is coming derated to 9900 pounds. But either way I would of been derating it, my trucks are 16,000 gvwr without trailers.

Yeah you were mis informed.

You'd need a cdl on a trailer over 10k cause of your truck weight.

My neighbor bought a B-Wise recently. Paid $14k for it...tag-a-long, maybe 14' long. Extra tall tailgate in the back for him to run his track machine up. So far says he likes it. Super heavy though @ 2.5 tons.
