The short answer is no. I believe some States require some kind of special licence, but I doubt a CDL. A quick call to your States DVM will tell all.

NOTE: As always, confirm any statements below with your local license issuing agency.
In general a CDL is not required to drive a Class A. The exceptions are:
  • DC: anything over 26K lb
  • HI: anything over 26K lb
  • IN: length over 45'
  • WI: length over 45'
More exceptions that might require a special or annotate license even though it is an RV:
  • CA: trailer over 10k lbs or 5th wheel over 15k lbs requires non-commercial Class A license
  • CT: trailer over 10k lbs requires Class 2 license
  • HI: trailer over 10k lbs requires Class 4 license, CDL above 26K lbs
  • IL: anything over 16K lbs (GCWR) or towing above 10K lbs requires non-commercial A, B, C.
  • MD: anything above 26K lbs requires non-commercial A or B
  • MI: an R license endorsement is required to pull two trailers
  • NC: anything above 26K lbs requires non-commercial A or B
  • NM: anything above 26K lbs requires Class E license
  • NV: trailer over 10k lbs requires a J license endorsement, above 26K lbs GCWR requires non-commercial A or B
  • NY: anything above 26K lbs requires a R license endorsement
  • PA: anything above 26K lbs requires non-commercial A or B
  • SC: anything above 26K lbs requires Class E or F
  • TX: anything above 26K lbs while towing above 10K lbs, requires non-commercial A or B
  • WY: anything above 26K lbs GCWR requires non-commercial A or B
NOTE: As always, confirm any statements above with your local license issuing agency.
Since the license requirements are reciprocal (that is you are only required to meet the license law in your state of residence) it makes me glad that I live in Oregon. No special requirements if it is an non-commercial RV.

License requirements vary by state, but you do not need a CDL (which is a commercial driver's license.) You might need a different class of license depending on the weight of your rig, but not commercial.
