Ok, the whole DOT thing really has me confused. I bought a 1995 F20 and from what I can gather it has a GVW of 8600 lbs. My trailer has a GVW of 2900 lbs making a total of 11500 lbs. I am under the assumption that anything over 10k you need DOT numbers. In the State of NY, how do I go about getting those? what do I need? is it just a form I can fill out and they assign me a number? do I need to go somewhere and get an inspection of my rig? If so, where do I go for that? If someone could give me the step-by-step process, I would appreciate it. I am really clueless on this.
