Fuel tax is only over 26,000. Log and medical needed if commercial, not rv. The real grey area is the guys pulling race and horse trailer, if you win and prize money you can then be considered commercial.yup, 10,000+ gvwr on truck/trailer. also better have a medical approval card and a log book if going over 150 miles from home. a fuel tax decal may also be considered to.....
No-go in California. Anything with a hauling type bed is considered "commercial" for registration and fee purposes. This was the thing that pushed the SUV market.... back in '74 when my dad bought his K5, the DMV rep explained that he could register the truck as a "station wagon" (normal "SAM 123" plates) as long as the back seat was left in place. If he removed the back seat to, say haul a water heater to the dump, he could be ticketed by a cop in a bad mood.1. Do not register with commercial plates..put in personal name. Put "not for hire" on vehicle.
Absolutely. If you were hauling your personal hobby car collection around (say from your workshop/home to your hangar) you'd be okay... but it would be pretty tough to get away with trying to claim that as, #1, you would have to have title to all of the cars on your rig, and #2, not too many people "collect" a mixture of makes/models that are in the condition that cars going to auction usually are.so hauling cars for the auction, being the owner of the truck and the business, and staying in state will this make me have to get a dot number.
Since any police officer can do a roadside inspect and interpret the rules the way they think :so hauling cars for the auction, being the owner of the truck and the business, and staying in state will this make me have to get a dot number.
Check with BBT/Pruden in Dalton. They are a Progressive and Sentry agent. if you have good credit and clean driving record, they usually drop a few hundred off the rate. I saved about 1K after they ran my credit and i am paying 2400 a year though Progressive. This is for a 2000 International 4900.Thanks everyone for all the great advice!! O.K first order of business the commercial insurance.... First quoto I got was through progressive for over 5k a year. That was for the truck and trailer, 750k liability, physical damage, collision etc.. For truck only it was $3849. Do these numbers sound about right or is there a better deal somewhere else??
