I have been told by most dealers that no special license is required. So I bought a 2007 Essex from a person in Tennessee. Flew down to inspect and then drove over 1000 miles home.

Was I legal?

Great! I was having some second thoughts about going to DMV, but I'll leave the weed home and travel legal.

According to research done by the Changin' Gears website, above 26,000 lb GVWR requires "R" endorsement in NY.

Thanks. I emailed the DMV to see what is required for the R endorsement. Could not find anything on their site.

OldHiker,

I copied and pasted this from the NY DMV website:

<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content">A driver with a Class D license can now operate a personal use vehicle (for example a rental vehicle or a recreational vehicle or RV) with a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of 26,000 lbs. or less that tows another vehicle that has a GVWR of 10,000 lbs. or more, but the gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of the two vehicles together must be 26,000 lbs. or less.

Note: The requirement for an "R" endorsement (Class D or Class E license) to operate a recreational vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 lbs. or more remains in effect.

</div></BLOCKQUOTE>

Also, look at this form. Maybe all that's needed is to request the 'R' endorsement and to pay a little extra. At the most you might have to take a written test and/or a driving test with the MH. They sure don't make this stuff easy to find out, do they?
