[RC] Weigh stations, trailer weights and licenses - marshall Bates

I believe it is Federal law that requires states to
require a class A license for anyone pulling a trailer
over 10,000 lbs GVW. This is not a commercial license
and a med certificate and log books are not required.
In NC the powers that be have determined that a horse
trailer with full living quarters is not an RV. It is
classified as a cargo trailer and legally should cross
the scales but the weigh stations really don't want to
be bothered by us.
One other thing to keep in mind, at least in NC, is
that your truck must be licensed for the combined
weight of your truck and trailer combined.
Happy trailering, Muleman
