Here's what I figured out: I can pull a trailer rated for over 10k as long as I don't use a vehicle that has a GVWR over 26k to pull the same trailer.
For example I could use my truck to pull a 12k rated trailer but I would need a Class A to use lets say an F650 to pull the same trailer.
My father in law was using an F800 to pull the 12k rated trailer (im assuming an F800 is over 26k GVWR) so the 10k rule applies and the CDL is needed
If I had used a super duty that can bumper pull, gooseneck, or 5th wheel pull 12k I would not need the CDL because the super duty's GVWR is under 26001
Sound correct guys????
