H Rugged Brown,

I'm looking at an All American Sport Toyhauler. I just posted a specific question about it in the Towing, HItches, and Toads forum.

Anyway, I'm looking to spend some time in North Carolina at first, and then maybe go out west for a while. I'm looking forward to the forum.

Thank you.

Hi there! FR has some pretty nice fifth wheels to select from. Going full time has to be exciting. How far west are you considering traveling to?

Take care,

Hi Terier,

California for sure. Maybe even Alaska some day. I understand there are issues in CA towing real big rigs and I might have to get a CDL to be legal there.

The subject line says "hello forest river". We are a group of campers that own Forest River units, but the forum is in no way connected to Forest River.....although we do have some Forest River reps that check in here from time to time.

Never heard of a personal use RV driver requiring a CDL in Canada. The only issue you might have is if your truck's GVWR is above a certain limit, or have air brakes etc. But those would apply to Canadians, and usually result in higher license fee's for us. Air brake is an endorsement.

Thanks Goomph. I meant a CDL in California, not Canada, (same abbreviation) but nice to have the info about Canada. GVWR of my truck is 11,400 lbs. No air brakes.
