Some weigh masters also just feel they need to justify their pay check...like rookies at custom stations...

if they are open, drive on by. If they are closed many still have the scales on. Drive in and check your loaded weight on the digital readout.

I've been in 48 states in an RV. Always towing. Never stopped at a scales yet. Have only saw a couple coaches stop at the scales.

Nothing says I'm right and as previously stated if I were pulled over for not stopping I'd for sure agree with the officer and do as he asked with no argument.

I have no intent on starting stopping now. Just do as I've always done until the "law" advises me otherwise

I addressed that question to the state police about towing a cargo trailer. The answer is no. However, we do have to pull off for the ag check stations in Florida. They just ask if you are carrying any plants or produce. Not sure if RVs are exempt from the agricultural stations, but I have never seen an RV stopping. However, if the RV is towing a cargo trailer, they may have to enter. I will ask them the next time we pass through.

I do not think anyone can answer the question with 100% certainty... Fact is the law is the law, each one can vary state to state and even with in the state they vary on how someone might interpret it which makes no help at ALL!

The MD stuff Ependydad posted is a perfect example.. I see the sign all the time along 1 (or 95 not sure) where it says ALL trucks over 5t must stop plus the work he put in contacting the DOT. But I bet if you pulled in the DOT guy would waive you by, or maybe not... Who knows.

I saw signs on the road in MD last week. I believe they stated Any vehicle over 5 tons had to pull in. The station I passed was closed and I am just under 5 tons so I scooted by.
