First thing was he picking up the tractor for himself or was he hauling for hire. How could his wife drive? If he didn't have a log book and medical card she most likley did't have it. Also it would take a lot of work to revamp a gooseneck to a bumper pull trailer.

According to the seller they put a ball on the bumper ,extended the mast ,then she proceeded as it no longer was illegal as it was a bumper hitch.I know this doesnt make sense but the man that told me this would not make this up.Seems like it would be safer hooked up to truck bed.He was picking it up for himself or at least the seller thought so..He was told when he crossed state line he was a commercial hauler and intrastate rules apply.It makes me not want to go out of state unless I know I am legal which I know Im probably not.

That's where the DOT officer was a total IDIOT. He turned a simple paperwork issue into a real safety issue. Hooking up a gooseneck trailer to a bumper is totally ignorant. Throws off the balance of the whole load. It puts too much tongue weight on the bumper of the truck and should make it unsafe to drive.I hope he put it back like it was suppose to be when he got back across the state line. I would take this issue to his superiors and see if the whole state DOT are Idiots.

Best thing to do is NOT go in to Iowa with a trailer. BTDT. Iowa DOT guys give the state its two names. In Mo. Iowa means one of 2 things around here- I Oughta Went Around or Idiots Out Walking Around.
