    Hello Everyone, I have a 2004 Chevy 3500 Dually, 6.6 LLY Duramax. My trailer is a 40 footer, with 8 foot neck. Trying to figure out length limit stuff. I measure just under 65 feet total length, I understand in some states some of their roads require you to be 60 feet or less if you’re a “truck and trailer” combo. I was reading online that if I put a flatbed truck bed on my rig I would go from being considered a “truck” to a “tractor”
    Is this true? If so, if anyone has some sources I’d greatly appreciate it. Thank you for your time!

    doubtful.

    Western states allow class 8 truck and full trailer [sometimes multiples as in 'rocky Mtn. doubles] but I don't think is applies to a class 4 or 5 truck.
