Even at 16,000 to 24,000 the sleepin dog issue is, he is gonna use it in his business.
Here, the problem in play is, the insurance companies want to know if the vehicle will be used in your business and how often.
If you don't have some sort of commercial insurance and you end up in an accident then your tit's in a wringer. With the sue happy populous, you can end up losing everything you've worked hard for.
Be safe, knowledgeable and make an educated decision.
An LLC needs to be in place too.

So I do NOT plan on using the truck for business. Mostly because it will be modified and the waters are already muddy with that.
I tried lookin up Coloradoís requirements on air brake vs cdl and itís not clear.
It appears there is no ďair brake certĒ that allows me to operate a vehicle with an air brake.
Only air brake restrictions, meaning is I took the test in a class b vehicle with no air brake, I could not opperate any vehicle with air brakes.

I guess a visit to the dmv is in order.

those air bags only tell an on-looker that it has air ride

it's the declared GVW that matters, if you have a title that says 16000 GVW, you are all set, just put a real toilet in it and a real stove and you can license it as an RV, no one will ever stop you. not even a weigh station.

Our government is a terrorist organization. Hundred years we didn't need a permit to catch rain water. Today the police state busts children for a lemon aid stand. We are much too afraid of the "man" it has destroyed our creativeness.
Sorry about the rant,it's the anarchist in me. Have fun with the build and don't worry about the gubment...
