Do i stop at scales since i would be an "RV"? Also would i need to keep my CDL? Thanks
THe following Ohio information is and example:
I converted a F700 to a RV here in Ohio. Quite simple really. Nothing (except the fifth wheel (this is and ohio rule) needs removed if you don't want to.
however there are some thing that need to be added.
If you are in ohio 2 BMV forms (#3804 ᙐ) must be filled out before
You have the body type on the title changed and you go get your $49.50 lic plates.
I personally think "Not for hire" is a magnet for the DOT officers.
I do not stop at weigh stations. Some state require a different class of lic for air brakes I am told.
The C in CDL is commerical. Keep the commerical out your RV and your won't need your CDL.
