BBB725 This has NOTHING to do with what you did for the past 10 years, this is NOW. LOOK at the date. 3/02/07 I have been pulling 34 to 45 foot trailers to and from Florida for 22 years and never been stopped. But things are changing.

Roger I understand that you are talking now, I had about a dozen trainers come down Jan 2007 for the Gold Coast tour and no one had a problem. That said I have been stopped in California in a motor home for having my awning and entry handles sticking out over 8' 6" made us turn around, it all depends on how hard they want to push it.

At least there's an exemption for trailer length for boats
I really have a hard time thinking every racer with a 28ft+ enclosed trailer is buying a permit.

I agree with all of the posts, but all I am saying is that they must be GOING to do something different if they went as far as notifing NHRA Drag racing organization about the change and Gainesville is coming up real soon. I think it is only a money thing. They are trying to tax us more and more. I hate to see any of us getting caught after the fact and having to pay a 1000 dollar fine. Go to NHRA .com and read it for yourself. Roger

Fla. law says if the trailer is over 25' and the tow truck has a full bed you need a permit. If you are under 25,000lbs. that still is in force. Most of the time if you are hualing a boat with a truck that says NOT FOR HIRE just bypass the scales.

I have been stopped and 65 feet overall is the legal limit. if you are over you need to buy a permit for oversize. So all of you towing a 38 top gun with a crew cab are really oversize but unless the cop had a bad night you should not get stopped
