Zack and all, I looked that one up too.. Seems like the unlimited is meant to be the "multi-multi" of rovers? pretty much anything goes.  Is the 3.5.7 exemption meant to deal with "grid circling"? seems like it might be. As far as 3.5.3.. what the heck is that? "roving" where you hook up to AC power and antennas a many different sites? I guess maybe that's still "roving" but do stations actually DO that??

bill, K1DY sometimes /R (classic I guess)

It appears to me that Classic Rover allows only two operators at most and
can operate on any and all VHF+ bands.

Limited Rover permits only two operators using only the four lowest bands.

Unlimited Rover can use more than two operators and is exempt from these

"*3.5.3.* Rover vehicles must transport all the equipment, power supplies,
and antennas used at each operating site."
"*3.5.7. *A rover may not make more than 100 QSOs with any other one rover."
