Maine does not require an upgraded license for driving motorhomes, regardless of size, so you are good to go. Some states do require an upgraded license for those driving motorhomes over 26,000 lbs, so it varies from state to state, depending on where you live. You are only required to comply with your home state licensing requirements. Just like driving a motorcycle, if your home state does not require a special motorcycle license, you are legal to drive your MC through every state, even those requiring a special class Lic for motorcycles.
However, vehicle equipment restrictions, which also vary from state to state, you are required to comply with. Such as the overall vehicle length limitations. If you drive through a state that has a 65 ft length limitation (included your towed vehicle or trailer) it applies to you, even if your home state limitation is 75 ft. Likewise a state requirement for auxiliary braking systems on all towed vehicles over 3000 lbs, applies to you within that state, even if your home state has no such requirement. etc
