Heard a rumor today from an RV dealer that legislation is coming that will require a CDL (Nationwide) when driving or towing anything over 10,000 lbs. Seems like just a rumor to me but don't put anything past our 'leaders' in Washington.

You're right. It's just a rumor.

And I think that you and your RV dealer contact might be able to take credit for starting it, because I can't find anything else about it on the whole internet!

Commercial only! If I'm trailer tow testing a prototype vehicle and trailer and I'm over 10k I must meet DOT requirements (inspections/logbooks/etc.), and state licensing requirements (Chauffeurs/CDL). CDL requirements are state by state, not a federal thing. BUT! If i'm pulling a TT with my own Grand Cherokee and over 10K no special requirements are needed....

Like I said, I thought it was a rumor for all the reasons stated and a few more. I do know how the Feds love to push stuff on the states, though. Thanks for the beating!!

LOL! Okay, you're right, but when has that stopped the Federal Government? States control gun laws too with the exception of interstate commerce. Opps, I mean states used to control gun laws. More and more is being taken away.
