was this a business / commercial haul, or a guy driving to pick up his own personal property he had just purchased?

I thought you didn't need dot # med card, and CDL to haul your stuff on your private truck / trailer, if not commercial, and not for hire/business.

I've run all over the lower southeast and west with my f450 and gn trailer... I cruise on by weigh stations and all.. no cdl.. no dot number.. not for hire.. under 26000.. etc.

never once been challanged... I would for sure move out of a state that started doing stupid communist stuff like that....

I am curious as to what rating your GN trailer and F-450 are if it places you under 26,001?
Not trying to stir the pot, I am looking for a rig that will haul some weight and still be under CDL total weight rating.

As answered it was his own truck,trailer,and picking up supposedly his own tractor.I talked to the seller again and he said the man and DOT officer got into a heated exchange.A pickup with a large bumper hitch camper rolled by prompting the bumper hitch debate.I would quess after they got going again the smart thing would have been to hitch it back where it belonged.As posted I shouldnt of even repeated this episode but I believe right or wrong it did happen and I was wondering what people thought.I sure found out.I do know even though it is black and white there are many interpretations of the requirements relating to NOT hauling commercially.My self I have an F-350 with a 32 tandem axle trailer ,have a CDL,med card,proper insurance ,but no #s,and until I am told different I am going by keep right on doing what I am doing and not ask for trouble and not go out of state anymore.
