^ You mean she was towing with the 550? No need for a cdl to drive one bobtail. They’re only rated 19,500lbs gross or something like that.
Add a trailer and it’s pretty easy to be over 26k.

I believe states honor the licensing requirements from a person's home state for personal non commercial vehicles, just like they honor drivers licenses from their state.

Ask Massachusetts DMV. However, when dealer registers the truck it will or won’t register as commercial.

My half ton in California is “commercial.” No option and no more fibbing to our DMV to save on fees.

All trucks in CA are Commercial down to the smallest. If it can haul a trash bag they consider it potentially used for commercial business. Sad State
