Only if you're transporting is as a third party carrier. Recreational vehicles are exempt from CDL requirements. However, your state may have additional requirements for non-CDL vehicles in excess of 26,000 lbs. Gross Vehicle Weight Rating/Gross Combination Weight Rating. You need to inquire with the DMV in your home state about this.
