JTFormula Posted February 7, 2013 Share Posted February 7, 2013 Sorry for not being a Mack truck question but it still pertains to trucking in general. I picked up a 99 f350 Dually with the 7.3l. The truck has a GVWR of 11,200 with a maximum towing cap of 13,300. My shop has a 36' Appalachian two car trailer with a 12,500 GVWR. Am I correct that with the GCWR combo of 23,500lbs I am under 26,000 so a CDL is not required even though the trailer is over 10k if I read the CDL requirements correctly? How do I register The F350, 11,200 of the truck or total GCWR?I am looking to set myself up as an auto transporter and want to get my ducks in a row. I have been looking at rollbacks to buy and just got my first insurance quote back at $7100. I am wondering if I can save some cash by using the ol F350 with the two car since I was going have a buddy of mine who is out of work run it a couple days a week so I can stay at my current job. He does not have a cdl. I have the ins co running #'s on this instead of a tow truck in hopes to save $. Plus it beats me buying a flatbed at this point in time even though I really want one. If all is successful my plan is to pick up a tractor and 3/4 car trailer. Of course it would be some type of Mack. Maybe an R or Superliner or even a CH. Then maybe build my B61 rollback!
