I have no problem with upgraded licenses for large MH and large 5ers, in fact I think it is a good idea, but lets be reasonable about it. By the way, I have a Class A CDL and keep up my DOT physical card, so I do practice what I preach.
I'm sorry if I came across wrong, I put the smiley face and called this state Commiefornia to try and lighten it up a bit
. I agree with you that it and many other things in this state are another reason for the state to get into our pockets. The Non CDL A is largely unknown to most owners of the heavier 5th Wheels, and even those with 5th wheels in the 10,001 to 15,000 GVWR's don't know that an endorsement is required on their Class C licenses to legally tow here. Believe me, I deal with these drivers out here everyday, and look forward to when I can retire in 5 years, and leave this state and all it's problems. Those of you with the CDL's, you have my respect when driving out here.
