the 1 issue I can think of that has not been mentioned is " Air Brake" Endorsement..

I BELIEVE that one MAY need an air brace endorsement if the MOHO has air brakes?

I am not 100% sure as I have been carrying my CDL A-/ air brake endorsement for 35+ years

IMHO it's not law enforcement you need to be worried about, however it is the ambulance chasing attorneys if you're ever involved in an accident, at fault or not.

Driving illegally would be fantasy level stuff for a lawyer.

Absolutely agree! We don't expect the unexpected. But should one have a injury accident and not have the required license - well I wouldn't want to be explaining that to a judge.

Here in California DP have less license requirements than FW or TT. Basic class C for any motorhome under 40'. Non commercial class B 40' to 45'.

Courts are filled with unlicensed and operators with the wrong endorsements. Heck just drive down the highway and see all the billboards for accident attorneys. In most cases the offender never even goes to court. Attorneys and insurance hash it out and the offender goes on about his day. Most likely without getting the license or insurance.

In NC anything over 26001 lbs required a B CDL. All I did was download the handbook for CDL and studied it one night. Then took the written test. I also had to drive my dp with the examiner with me. Piece of cake.
Since switching back to a fiver I plan to keep the B license now that I have it.


Not if it is a non-commercial motorhome. Check with DMV or NC General statutes.

NC General Statute 20-37.16. (e) The requirements for a commercial drivers license do not apply to vehicles used for
personal use such as recreational vehicles.
