New Redwood 38GK

We'll we picked up the 2013 King Ranch on the 8th, and then drove the 38GK home this past weekend.

Since the rig weights more that 26000 lbs, I will be needing to get my CDL. Luckily the wife already has hers, from a previous job.

Some states only require an Exempt class A and not a full CDL.

Congrats, hope you enjoy. We are looking at a 38GK ourselves. What interior color did you get?

SWEEEEET!

I'm not sure about the exacts on towing a big RV but like TXiceman said, you won't need a CDL In IL that MIGHT require a class B NON-CDL.

ENJOY!

I can get a "NON-Commercial" Class A here in MD, working on it. But we can stlll operate since the wife kept her CDL A current when she left the training dept at WERNER Trucking.

It's doing GREAT! No problems to speak of. Just had a Winegard slimline DirecTV antenna and washer/dryer stack installed, for when we start nomading it for a month or two at a time. Of course I will have to retire before we do that,...by the end of the year though.

The Wineguard is great.
We have been Fulltiming for two years with out a washere and dryer?
We opted for the more storage. We had a 38' HH. CE.
just went to a 41' journey. Had them take out the W & D.

That setup has serious problems though !

It would match my truck much better than yours :-) :-)
