  1. DID HE HAVE A CLASS A CDL?

    ******************************************

    26,001 IS THE MAGIC NUMBER….
    COMBINATION VEHICLES WITH GVWR OF 26,001 LBS WITH MORE THAN 10,000 LBS OF THAT BEING IN TOW REQUIRE A CLASS A CDL!

    F350 + 10 HORSE TRAILER + 10 HORSES…..

    F350 HAS AT LEAST A GVWR OF 10,000 LBS. PROBABLY MORE LIKE 12,000-14,000 LBS.

    I’M GOING OUT ON A LIMB AND GONNA SAY NO MATTER WHAT MANUFACTURER, THE TRAILER WOULD HAVE TO BE RATED FOR OVER 16,001 LBS……. IF IT’S DESIGNED TO TRANSPORT 10 HORSES, TACK, ETC. DO THE MATH.

    10 HORSES WEIGH MORE THAN 10,000 LBS!!!!!

    JUST SAYIN…..!!!!

  2. IF he didn’t have his CDL….HE HAD NO BUSINESS OPERATING THE VEHICLE. THANK GOD HE DIDN’T KILL ANYONE OR ANYTHING ELSE!!!!!
