So many newbie questions

The number of forums here its hard to know where to post some basic stuff.

There are 4 of us friends who just acquired a free 76 Itasca motorhome and we're going to pool our resources to use it. I guess its about a 22footer, Chevy van cab and SBC powered. I think this would be a class B.

Not clear on the classes or what/if any special license requirements there are. Been here and there on txdot (We're in Texas), but I just keep finding info about registration, inspection, etc. Can't seem to find anything regarding license restrictions if any.

Is there a FAQ for newbs?

Hi Frank. Welcome to the forum and congrats on your "new rig". You'll find a lot of expertise available here to help you out.

You don't have to worry about any special drivers license requirements on a 22' rig in Texas. Their law requires a non commercial Class B if you weigh >26000 lbs but I seriously doubt you are anywhere near that. To anticipate your next question... virtually all state consider you legal to drive in their state if you are legal in your home state.

You might want to post many of your questions in our "Vintage RV" section since your rig is 35 years old.

Best of luck...

There were both Class C and Class A Itasca in 76. If it has a van-type cab and the body extends over the roof of the cab, it is a "C". If it has a straight box body that includes the driving area, it is an "A".
