Living in Cali and looking at the requirements, it appears MANY here are illegal judging by the monster toy haulers in the desert on any giving weekend.
I am sure most don't have a "non commercial" A license.
Many in my group don't.

this list seems inaccurate . In Co it states a cdl is needed for any truck 6500 and over . when it's only commercial trucks . not personal trucks .

Are there not enough bumps in the road without going out and digging more up.

Georgia says "recreational vehicles" are exempt from CDL. But, they don't specifically define a rec vehicle

It's a real mess, since the Feds leave the non-commercial vehicle laws to the states. If you comply with all the license requirements of the state that issues your license, you should be accepted in any other state as qualified. That does not necessarily apply to your rig, however.

before anybody gets bent out of shape I would ask how many if anyone has ever had an issue while towing , driving a RV in any state for license requirements .I'd wager not even 1% of all rv owners over the last 50 yrs have had issue

I would put that percentage at ZERO percent since your driver license is good in all 50 states - if it is legal your state it is legal in all 50 states. Now your rig you're towing is a different story and I know two different people that got nail because there rig didn't meet state laws but was OK in the home state.
