jon f mn said: (quoted from post at 14:22:32 12/07/13) As long as your only hauling your own stuff for personal use you are not under dot reg and they can't do anything to you as far as dot rules go. They can stop you for safety reasons tho just like they can a car if they think your unsafe.

I don't believe that's true. I once went and found Michigan's rules, and printed them off. Michigan's rules are the same as federal rules, and there's a weight limit, like 10,000lb empty or something like that, that automatically makes you a "commercial vehicle", whether or not you're private use, and therefore subject to all of the CMV code. I know that my rig, a 1 ton Ford and gooseneck, are over the weight limit. I'm pretty certain any pickup and gooseneck combo will fall in the "commercial vehicle" category. That being said, I chain stuff down well, drive reasonably, I haven't had a single problem, yet... -Andy

Here is the link to the rules I mentioned...

You're missing the part about the question; are you private or commercial. 10K isn't an automatic declaration of being commercial. If you're hauling your tractor to a show, not taking it to advertise your restoration skills for hire, not taking it to do work for pay, not using it in any sort of business activity, not taking it to a contest where you could win prize money, and don't have a sponsor helping to pay any expenses, you're private and exempt from commercial scrutiny.
