RV Driver's License Requirements
TURBS:

I think I know the answer...but to be sure:

Licensed in one state (no special licensing required) and driving in another (special licensing required)...am I okay/legal without the special license for the state being visited?

Curious minds want to know.

I still say check with your dmv as it appears the changing gears website is not necessawrily correct. Although the way it's written in NC is about as clear as mud.

This is from NC DMV
Class C drivers license- Required to operate any single vehicle that is not carrying hazardous material in quantities required to be placarded or is designed to carry no more than 15 passengers including the driver with a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of less than 26,001 pounds; or any vehicle towing a vehicle which has a combined GVWR of less than 26,001 pounds operated by a driver at least eighteen years old.
Most drivers need only a Regular Class C license to operate personal automobiles and small trucks.

Class B drivers license- Required to operate any single vehicle with a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of 26,001 pounds or more that is exempt from CDL requirements, or any such vehicle while towing another vehicle with a GVWR of 10,000 pounds or less.

Class A non-commercial drivers license- 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.


Reading this I might need to get a class A non-commercial license for my fiver with a 13k gvwr.

I have pulled 5ers with Fords and I have pulled them with Dodges - I am a truck guy with no real brand allegiance. My personal preference is the Cummins big 6 purely for the torque. Less shifting and lower rpms. As for the drw idea, hands down the dually will grant the most stability and limit body shifting but a real good alternative is the Timbren System - stiffens up the rear end and adds stability much like the drw for a few hundred dollars. Beyond the money however is your location, where I reside drw's don't get along too well about 9 months of the year between the wet clay in the spring and fall and the ice / snow from Nov-March.

We used to tow a 38 ft fifth whell and at first we had a standard F350. Then we traded up to a dullie and found the towing experience to be much more comfortable. I personally prefer a Ford 350 for two reasons. The first is that the engine or any service can be obtained anywhere and the performance of their diesel is super. The Cummins diesl (in the Dodge units) is much more expensive to repair and you have to be careful if you need any repairs or adjustments... Cummins is very particular when it comes to any warrantee problems (Had a cummins in my motorhome and mins (the service centres) were very demanding as far as service was concerned. Don't get me wrong. The cummins is a great enjune but service is not available everywhere.
