Natchez Trace Parkway

I heard that there is a max. weight restriction of 40,000 lbs on the parkway. Has anyone travelled with a class A and toad? Any problems encountered? Thanks

+Pulled a Grand Vitera behind a Flair class A.[ about 20,000 lbs total] .. Did not see any signs saying weight limit, but was not looking for any either !!!. There is no shoulder to speak of, blacktop, then grass. The Trace is a wonderful leisurely drive. No trucks, speed limited, few intersections. Lot of places to pull off and read the history. We had audio tapes with us, helped a lot. The "Longwood" mansion is a must see.

We will be traveling on the Trace during the second and third week of January 2014. It will be our first time. We are using the following guide:

"Guide to the Natchez Trace Parkway" by F.Lynne Bachleda

It is a comprehensive information source with information form its origins, history, maps, traveling information, sightseeing information by milepost, restaurants and campgrounds on and near the Trace. It can be purchased on Amazon, retails for $16.95. I did not see any weight limitation, only a speed limit of 50 miles per hour with no commercial trucking allowed.

Oh.. We had no problems. Took 3 days. Stayed near Tupelo. , Jackson, and Natchez.
Gas stations on the Trace are limited also but lots of small towns along the way.

We live very close to the Trace and ride motorcycles on it regularly. There may be a weight limit but I see all types and sizes of MHS plus toads on it. There are two main rules for driving on the Trace, you get about 3 mph over the limit, and no commercial vehicles, not even a car with a company logo. A word of warning, at night the road belongs to the deer, they don't get out of your way, you get out of theirs.
