6 weeks until the first trip
If the combined GVWR exceeds 26000lbs the FED standards if adopted by your state(Tx adopted) require the "A" endorsement to a non-commercial license or have a CDL..Per my buddy with the Tx DPS(highway patrol) most states are adopting these standards since it helps with highway dollars from the U.S.govt
As to the 26000,most duallys with 5'rs say over 33ft probably are over the 26000 combined wight,my 321 RLTS would if I stepped up to a newer GMC dually .Probably very few of us rv'ers have the added A on thier license.I am however studying to go take the written & find a dually to borrow to take the driving test since my 3/4T wont exceed the combined GVWR.
