If all our "can I tow this TT with this TV" questions were about setups like that, it would be easier to answer.

Not true! The larger units pay more/mile at several transport companies. Two friends of mine do it for a living and they get about $0.25 more/mile on the larger units. Both have CDLs as do I, and they can legally tranport the larger units.

In California....

If you are being paid to tow the RV, you need a commercial DL.

As a private citizen, towing for your own personal use, once you exceed 40' as a single vehicle or towing a 10k GVWR of a trailer/5er you need a CDL.

Truck has USDOT #'s so CDL is needed ,as I understand it .
here in Tx pulling/driving your personnel RV you don't need a CDL ,BUT if rig exceeds 26000lb GVWR with a few caveats you need a" class A non CDL".which I have.

License requirements vary from state to state...

When I delivered trailers for Jayco, I had a Michigan Chauffeur License. I delivered all kinds of trailers from bungalow to a small one with surge brakes.

I was under contract to Jet Transportation (Jayco's delivery division) and had a magnetic sign with Jet's DOT number. I had to follow all the same DOT rules as a CDL driver regarding log books, hours, etc.

The truck at the beginning of this topic appears to be under contract to Star; one of many other companies that deliver RVs. It appears he has a magnetic sign that has been trimmed.
