I hope this is the right section... i have some questions and be getting conflicting answers:
Floridaís Class E drivers license is restricted to below 26001lbs. Except Motor Homes.(not travel trailers)
As per regulations i find, any Vehicle equipped with a fifth wheel hitch, is considered at "Truck TractorĒ and in this case you are restricted to 26001lbs total weight, truck and trailer per definition....
This is at least what i have found and been told so far.
Now my question would be: How do i tow a 22000lbs Travel Trailer fifth wheel, if Iím restricted to 26001lbs ?
Florida does not have any Non-Commercial license for over the above limit.
I can not find any exception on fifth wheel travel trailer....
The main question behind this is that i want to purchase a large tow vehicle (medium duty Truck) to pull my trailer.. how can i do this and stay below the max weight ?
Iím confused and i hope someone here can shed light on this
