    You don't need a cdl.... That's the whole thing...

    Unless you're truck and trailer are over 26 combined

    I agree , but why on here are some people saying you do

    LOL

    All of the sudden with a gooseneck instead of a bumper pull trailer you now need a CDL


    Does not make sense to me :hammerhead:

    7000# truck
    4000# trailer
    10000# skiddy IF


    21000#

    Hey Josh - feel free to call me to discuss this. It's impossible to have an adult discussion on this forum. I'm not going to sit here arguing with people about what I have seen, experienced, researched, etc. But I will be happy to discuss on the phone.

    It has nothing to do with gooseneck vs bumper pull. It's all based on weight.

    You do need a CDL, and I will explain.

    (Too for zero) 674-466four

    Anyone else from MD is welcome to call me also.

    Or - if you don't want to call me, then at least call a Maryland Commercial Vehicle Inspection Station and ask to speak to a supervisor. In Frederick the local landscaper club (falcon) hosts a day where the MSP DOT Unit comes and speaks for the day about DOT laws and inspections. May be something to attend.

    let's put it this way - The DOT units are very big on NOT writing tickets that a judge will not enforce. Each DOT inspector writes more than one ticket per week for this violation.

    I don't understand what his problem is. It's not rocket science. I live in the same damn state and use the same damn roads
