    Here's an English take on a towing rig.
    We have much smaller roads here, and a lot less space, so I guess this looks a bit small to some of you.

    2006 Landrover Defender 110, 2.5 litre 5-cyl turbo diesel.
    Trailer is an ancient Ifor Williams flat bed with homemade drop sides and hay ladders. The deck is 12' x 6'6". Max laden weight is 3500kg.
    Maximum legal towing weight for this kind of vehicle in the UK is 3500kg, and the Defender is rated to tow all of that

    Good looking rig, reminds me of a Jeep Commander nice big SUV without being huge, plus a big powerful V8 and 7,500 lb tow capacity which is rigt around your 3500 kg (7700 lb) rating.
    Buddy of mine tows his Wrangler with one.

I have the truck set up just like I like it and wouldn't change anything except for the fuel mileage. I deleted it and while it improved some its still horrible. Trailer is a 25+5 with 10k axles. In hind sight I wish I had gotten the st package with the rubber floors but momma liked this one!

    It's completely and wholly true. Some don't need air brakes so that restriction wouldn't matter. Some who take their A test already have air brakes on their license.

    I also should have clarified, my skid steer trailer is a 10k tandem axle trailer
    Ya that isn't big enough to get a class A with.

    Changes often!

    In California, pulling a 10,001 GVWR or larger equipment trailer requires a CDL even if pulling with a regular pickup. So a typical 14k tandem gooseneck dump trailer puts you into a CDL to tow it legally, even if the combo isn't over 26k or rated over 26k. And yes you can take your CDL test in a pickup with that trailer, but as mentioned you will be restricted to non-air brakes so the CDL becomes pretty limiting.

    I know this differs in other states.
