If you ever get pulled over never ever tell them you are going to any type of a competition. You are correct on hitting the horse people and weekend racers. If you are on your way to compete for prizes of monetary value (not just cash, but any type of prize of value) they can bust you for not having a CDL. I have not heard of this as much in Michigan yet though. It is common in WI, IL, NV, TX, and CA from what I have read on the diesel boards. Another tip-off is having business name stickers on the rig, trailer, or vehicle on the trailer. That implies the possibility of having sponsors, which also leads them to say you are competing for money or are compensated by a sponsor for your activities. It is all just a revenue grab for the states that are pulling these types of people over. That is truly an awesome rig. I would just hate to have to back up a trailer very far with it. That could get painful in a hurry!

That would be great if they would do that.

How much do you charge someone to tow up their Jeep and let them sleep in it?

Anyone got a 4 place trailer....could be one hell of a party!

you are correct. you must register it as a motor home and it needs to have living and cooking quarters to fit the motorhome qualification.
