i like that link to but it misses a few states. not many though. pretty much if your trailer is under 10ft wide and sub 14 tall you can go through any state that i have seen with just a cheap
permit and no need for a guide/flag car. from all the permits i have been able to contact/google they are all super cheap
for a 3day-2week permit.
some states only let you travel weekends or weekdays not holidays. while some as long as you are sub 10ft or sub 12ft in width depending on state will let you travel 24/7. or if you weigh to much you are limited for the days or hours that they say. but from what i see is that if you are sub 10 or 12 and not to long or over weight they dont care when you travel.
and some states sell a year wide load permit for not much more then the two week permit. so 8'6 is the legal
limit but its virtually no hassle to get a wide load permit as long as its not a super wide or over weight load. so all the boats i have looked at were under 8'6 now i dont even care and have been looking at anything under 30ft long and under 10ft wide opens the door to a lot of boats.
if any one has any questions on wide load permits PM
