    Sucks to be wrong doesnt it?





    I just sold my 14 k dump trailer. That thing was hell on my poor little 3/4 ton. In no way was it legal. If I got checked it would have been overweight on Rear axle, tires, rims, and hitch.

    Show me where I am wrong. :rolleyes:



    You must be a very poor operator, Richard.

    Perfectly legal. As with any trailer it'd have to be loaded properly.

    You got anything to back up such a statement?

    You seem to like to pull stuff from your arse and pass it off as fact. :rolleyes:

    Like i said i talked to the DOT officer last week, that's who works at the scale house isn't it? I put this on here cuz I have had a few ppl tell me different things.I really didn't think what he told me was right. I guess maybe it was, maybe not. First off he never asked me what class of licence i even had. He also failed to metion anything about what the truck is capiable of. he left me feeling like someones comment about a ranger or hyndai pulling a big trailer, which I didn't feel was right. I'm pretty sure i get it now, little in the gray, but i think i understand now. Thanks guys.

    Im thinking your question was about CDL laws so thats all he gave you. Every vehicle has its own individual capacities that are enforced in addition to cdl laws.

    It was ,but i told him what truck i had and what i was thinking about buying. And even told him "I am asking you before i buy so that i know i'm legal" You would think he would have explained that a little more. I guess if he don't explain it they that gives him a reason to pull me and give a ticket next time he sees me,typical.....
