Can you show me the exact words that back up your claim that "if the trailer is 12,000 or above need CDL"
Here is the rule......
1.2 Drivers Who Must Obtain a CDL
A CDL must be obtained by the driver of any of the following vehicles:
• Any combination of vehicles with a gross combination weight rating (GCWR)** of 26,001
or more pounds, providing the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR)* of the vehicle being
towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
• Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not
in excess of 10,000 pounds.
• Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.
• Any vehicle required by federal regulations to be placarded while transporting hazardous materials.
