Re: I-77/Ride /camp

In our state they do not register by weight...I have the following choices:
Commercial, Non-commercial (up to one ton trucks only), Farm or Apportioned.  As
long as my entire rig does not go over the "rating" by the manufacturer (30,000
lbs.) I am okay. BUT, your DOT guy was wrong about the log books...I wouldn't
agrue with him, though.  If he says okay, you are getting away with a nuisance.
