    Because, if a CDL is not required for a vehicle under 26K, you can't get an air brake restriction on something that is not required, BY LAW. Not your opinion, but the law.

    I'm sure he does.

    You do know what CDL stands for, don't you?

    Specifically the "C"?

    As an aside, I'd like to see an RV with air brakes and 1 axle. Heck of a balancing act.

    A CDL is for the use of air brakes / air suspension, and should be governed by the FMCSA (federal standards). Should not be for anything over 10kgvwr. In Illinois, anything 16,001 gvwr and over require a C license. I would call your state office for clarification on what's required.

    OMG that is funny right there. Air suspension? :laugh:


    But not a class C CDL right? ;)

    Haven't we gone over this already?

    This statement is false.

    Then, throwing air suspension into the mix makes it more humorous. Or maybe sad.

    Please tell me where there is anything relating to air suspension vs spring in a CDL manual that relates to licensing.

    Hey Duff, where does this stuff come from?

    Air suspension? CDL? Seriously?

    I'm pretty sure I said drive axles, you know the things that power the unit. Air suspension is completely different from what I was referring to. Also in the manual it does say that air brakes are classified as an endorsement. The only false statement I made was saying it was shown on my license, which only proves I never look at my license.
