On our maiden voyage I spoke to a NYS Trooper who was at the rest area about the weigh stations and RV's. He stated that in NY State RV's did not have to stop unless they were engaged in commercial enterprises.

And that is the typical response in 49 of the 50 states... For some reason MD does not know what the answer is...

they will ground anyone they think is close to that limit.
I pull a Cedar Creek 34RL, which has a gross weight of 16,173LBS with a 6 cylinder engine in my truck. So I guess I would get pulled over than, in fact any Ram diesel equipped truck would get pulled over by your statement. They are all 6 cylinder engine trucks and from 2008 and up they all have been equipped with the original 6.7L engine in them.

If you read the communications with the state, you'll find that it isn't.
