I'm considering going on an RV trip with a large RV (26,000 lbs. GVWR) and a tow vehicle on a dolly (combined weight ~6,000 lbs.). I've even found a few with airbrakes. The state requirements for this vary wildly: https://www.outdoorsy.com/blog/guide-rv-drivers-licenses-requirements.
How do you handle the varying restrictions here? For example, here in NY I can get an R endorsement on my license and be good to go. But it sounds like in NC I'd be violating the law (since my combined weight is over 26,000lbs. NY doesn't have the concept of a non-commercial driver's license anymore (like many states), and I have zero interest in being paid to drive.
Is my vanilla (and as of yet hypothetical) D license w/ an R endorsement enough to get me through North Carolina if I get pulled over? I have trouble believing a Police officer has to know the licensing requirements for all 50 states, despite honoring other licenses.
