It's amazing how States make a simple question so hard to get the correct answer. In my State you have to read past the 1st page of the CDL handbook, no mention in non CDL handbook. Page one says personal RVs are exempt , just need a regular Class C. The GOTCHA is a few pages in , " Exceptions to the Excemptions " and only here does it explain the requirement for a non-CDL class A or B for driving /towing over 26001 lbs.
Why do States confuse the question ? I have the Tx non-CDL classA and have only know of one person who posted a rant on Jayco forums a few years back about getting a ticket for incorrect license . I would bet over half the heavy RV's are driven useing the standard DL issued by States that require the heavier class of DL.

I'm sure you're correct. They don't make it easy, that's for sure.
