It's too bad you can't get your "pound of flesh" from that Sargeant by suing him. All the courts would saw is that he was acting "under color of law" even if he was a jerk.

I have a class A CDL endorsement in WA so I should be covered.

As someone else observed, it's interesting that driving a RV of commercial dimensions needs no special licensing.

By the way, I pay more to renew my CDL endorsement than I do to renew my motorcyle endorsement.

My Class A CDL says "Combination Vehicle Weight/GVWR of 26001 or more LBS W/Trailer over 10000 GVWR"

This license is the required license to operate a semi tractor trailer, and the gross weight of that can not exceed 80000 Lbs

My First CDL said "All Vehicles and Combination Vehicles Except Class M"

Class M is for a motorcycle and I also have that endorsement too.

Even if a state has a special law that would require a special license for a RV you are still ok to operate in that state if your home state does not require a special license for an RV. However, the person that is towing from a state that would have a special license for an RV must also have that license when he is in another state.

It has something to do with a compact where each state will honor the other states laws concerning licensing and restrictions when you are visitiing, passing through, etc.

Personally I am surprised that they have not yet added a special endorsement on your license for RVs. They are missing a few bucks for once.

I know one thing if you have a CDL you should be covered, the CDL in my state cost 5 times what a regular drivers licens does.

Just adding my 2 worth
