Best Answer

Any commercial use vehicle or combination with a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating or Gross Combination Weight Rating in excess of 10,000 lbs. requires a DOT medical card for interstate operations. Intrastate operations tends to be a little bit of a grey area, although some state laws clearly require it.

If the Gross Combination Weight Rating (combined GVWRs of both power unit and trailer) exceeds 26,000 lbs., and this is a commercial use vehicle, then it will require a CDL (Class A if the trailer has a GVWR in excess of 10,000 lbs., Class B if the trailer has a GVWR of 10,000 lbs. or less), and thus a medical card will be required.

Is your question about trailer hitch weight, or actual trailer weight? The trailer hitch point is dependent on which hitch has been installed, and likely not exceeding 150 pounds. Given the breaking system of the vehicle itself, and the fact that it is front-wheel drive, it is not recommended that the trailer be greater than 500 pounds.
