is that a national thing?? my truck is 10K gvw, but when I add my trailer, the combo would jump to 12950. I don't have a DOT number as yet.

It is state to state. There are federal regulations for interstate and intrastate, and state regulations for interstate and intrastate. Check out www.fmcsa.dot.gov. you could also call your secretary of state, and they may be able to help you, or at least point you in the right direction.
