If my wife would let me, I'd be getting an HDT in a heart beat.

Alabama doesn't require a CDL for a bobtail 18 wheeler if you're using it for private towing of your RV. I don't know about other states.

You have it reclassified as a motor home after making some changes and then it depends on where you live regarding licenses. go to the HDT page for more info HDT - Escapees Discussion Forum

Pulling ours for almost three years with the Volvo and no strain going up grades or down. Exhaust brake and Jake brake so no white knuckles for me. Texas has class A non-commercial license for folks who are over 26k, either combination TV and TT/5th wheel or MH/toad over 26k, or DP with tag over 26K. I kept my CDL since retirement.
Be happy to answer any questions on HDTs as best I can.

Not sure if the weight police would say this was acceptable to tow a half ton towable ultra light, or not! It could be border line.

around here a 3 axle (tandem drive) truck requires a class 3 license and air endorsement. If the trailer had air brakes you'd need a class1. now, if the truck was a single axle, all youd need is a regular class5 license and air endorsement and you'd be good to go.

I was keeping my eyes open at the auctions for a cheap single axle truck to pull the 395, but they seem to be pretty rare around here and anything that was going cheap was typically a very light spec truck and tiny engine with a billion miles. ended up trading off my 2 single wheel 1ton dodges for the new dually, cant complain, gets better mileage than a big ol 3406 or n14 would pulling the trailer and i can use it for a daily driver still :P

Nope, I know of at least one that has a kenworth and I'm pretty sure I've seen another.

This is similar to what our fellow forum member does.

Some states require CDL just because it has air brakes.
