  • Looking for applied legal advise...

    I have explored the FMCSA/DOT site and the MD.MVA site . The more I look thru the Fed site the more confused I get. I have a new truck..an F250 with a GVRW of 9800 and a conventional towing capacity of 12.5 thousand pounds.Within the state of Maryland , I think i understand what is legal ,to comply with my 26,000 licence limitation.
    I am very interested to learn : What do I need to know in order to drive from state to state carrying a utility or boat trailer. Any enforcement links of eastern states would be great. Secong question....what is the definition of "Commercial Driving" from an enforcement viewpoint?
    An example of things i would like to do: I would like to be able to drive to Georgia...buy two or three trailers (stacked) under 7,000 pounds and bring back to sell. I would like to be able to transport small boats friends or aquiantenaces and recieve cost reimbursement for fuel.
    In summary ..i am tryng to get an idea of what line I should not cross...and when am I required to pull into weigh stations???Any links would be greatly appreciated.

    Your best bet is probably to go to the local MVA office or state police barracks and ask them. Those are the specialists.
