That is why so many states added "Non-Commercial" Classes.
Does not appear Kansas got the memo either. They require a CDL as well if over 26K.

Snippets from various websites:

Kansas: CDL (Class B) required for single vehicle over 26,000 lb; CDL (Class A) required for multiple vehicles with combined weight over 26,000 lb

Kansas (Commercial Driver’s License, Class A needed for over 26K)


Interesting bit that I came across. It is not Kansas specific but illustrates how things can vary by state:

"From trailers, campers and fifth-wheels, to motor homes and boats, people are spending their weekends on the road to the lake, rodeos, races, the river, and other recreational venues and activities. In our world of “bigger is better,” recreational vehicles are no exception. With a manufacturer’s weight rating (“GVWR” or “GCWR”) over 26,000 pounds and often towing a unit with a GVWR over 10,000 pounds, these vehicles can be as large as some commercial trucks.

Both state and federal law sets forth requirements for drivers of certain types and sizes of vehicles. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration sets minimum standards for motor vehicles used in commerce. However, states are not precluded from establishing their own laws relating to vehicle safety, which are often more specific than their federal counterpart. Oklahoma has taken an approach very similar to federal regulations, adopting the same weight ratings system to differentiate between classes of vehicles. Generally, if federal guidelines require a driver to posses a CDL, Oklahoma law does as well."
