Figuring that even my dually f350 and 14k dump trailer are able to pass the cdl mark of 26k fully loaded etc, what is needed in NJ? I know there is a test you can take and i can apply for a CDL license designation to be able to tow heavier trailers... is there anything else? My highest capacity trailers are 12 and 14k limits, the trucks "vin tags" show 11,400 and 13,500 for the two F350s. Im looking at a gooseneck, and was set on just a 14k to keep it simple. But im going to look at one with still two axles but their 10k axles and the trailer has a gvw of 25,900, figuring Kaufman says 20k on tires, 5,900 max on gooseneck of truck. I know even fully loaded this thing would be fine on the dually f350 with 4.30 gears, but id need a CDL. Id be around 35,000 if it was really fully loaded for the truck and trailer. I'd rarely ever have that much weight on it unless im picking up pallets of sod, salt, landscape block, heavy trees etc. Anyone else get a CDL just to run around with a trailer that is too heavy to stay under the limit?
