For what you may think it's worth:

I have written to Cruise America and to Apollo - both rent out RV's to Europeans big time. The rent out Class C's (big ones) and even Class A's with a max weight up to 26,000 pounds. They appear the rent nothing out in the 38 to 40,000 pound range, and there is probably a good reason for that.

Both have returned a reply that basically says the same: With a standard European drivers license for a regular auto, you can drive ANY of their rental vehicles ANYWHERE in the US. This is as long as you are 21 years or older and have had your license for 2 years. Max age is 75.

If you go to their respective web sites you can read roughly the same.

I would have thought that if you make your living renting vehicles out to Europeans, you would have checked this issue thoroughly, and for that reason I personally tend to believe that they are right in what they submit to me in writing.

If they keep Class A rentals below 26,000lbs that kind of aligns with what we've discussed so far. According to the Changing Gears link you can drive any Class A below 26,000lbs on a regular license just about anywhere in the US...the state-by-state limitations only come into play above that weight. The only potential gotcha on that list was IL, but that may just be incorrect data.

So, we're back to the original thinking. As long as your foreign friend driving something small or a Class A below 26,000lbs it seems they would be absolutely fine with their regular license (translated into English of course = International Permit). Anything larger and they would have to look at individual state laws. What do you think?
