'95 F250 ext cab long bed, PSD, 5 speed, 2 wheel drive, 3.55 gears, 286,000 miles, Edge Evolution CTS (LINK TO MY REVIEW), LUK clutch, homemade REAR BUMPER, open element AIR FILTER, 36" ARE contractor cap. With tools, full of fuel and me on board (300 lbs) steer 3620, drive 3860 total 7480.
If your 5th wheel will weight over 10k pounds you need a special endorsement. Pretty easy to get. No medical required. However most DMV offices have no idea what you will be talking about. When I did mine it took longer for them to figure out what to do than actually do it and take the simple test.
Do I need a special license to tow the 5th wheel a vehicle behind it? Will my class C license will do?

Others have hit the main points:
1. fifth wheel less than 10,000 lbs GVWR = no extra licencing required
2. fifth wheel between 10,001 lbs and 15,000 lbs = an RV endorsement on your Class C license
3. fifth wheel over 15,000 lbs GVWR = non-commercial Class A license is required
4. fifth wheel towing anything = CDL with doubles endorsement
