    Wanted 16 or 18 foot trailer factory built. Prefer full ramp but would consider two individual ones. Late model and in good condition. 5 or 6 ton capacity. Needs to be within 100 or so miles of Bolivia, N.C.

    A word of wisdom , don't get a trailer over 10,000 lbs or you will need a class a drivers license to pull it . I was informed of this by a NC dmv officer. My class c license wouldn't't cover my 10400 lbs trailer even though i wasn't't hauling near that weight. Now with my fifth wheel rv its over 14000 but since it has living quarters its exempt .

    Wisdom Eh?.....That is pure hogwash.

    10k trailer by itself doesn't require a class A. :hammerhead:

    Since you don't live in NC , you don't have a NC drivers license do you ? On our license it plainly states a class c license entitles you to pull up to a 10000 rated trailer but not over. State officer said they bust women pulling horse trailers all the time because the trailer is rated over 10000 by the mgf sticker. But if it is hauling hay or corn etc it's fully exempt. Sometimes it all depends if the officer wants to write the citation. Dude if the black and silver blazer pulls you , they going to weigh you and check your paperwork , thay want your money.

    What else does it say on the back of your license? Because that is not all it says is it?

    In all of your wisdom have you ever read your driver's license manual?

    It is right here for you. http://www.ncdot.org/DMV/driver_services/drivershandbook/download/NCDL_English.pdf

    Only women? :confused:

    While you are at it look up what a CDL class A is required for and lets us know what it is would ya.

    I only suggested they he not buy a 6 ton trailer,he can buy what ever he wants . but cp from the hand book .
    Class A — Required to operate any
    combination of vehicles exempt from CDL
    requirements with a gross vehicle weight
    rating (GVWR) of 26,001 pounds or more,
    provided the GVWR of the vehicle(s) being
    towed is greater than 10,000 pounds. CP page 12
    And thats not a CDL license. There are class a-b-c regular license and A-B C CDl licenses. Read the manual that you posted DUH
    And around here it's mostly women pulling horse trailers because the men are at work making the money.

    I don't plan to argue with you any futher.

    Ok I hadn't read my new license that I renewed last week . But on my old license it does state the part about the 10000 lbs towed vehicle. So it changed since the DMV officer gave me the warning two yrs ago. So it it is now hose manure.
