I pulled into one once when we first started RVing and was told to get the hell out. Haven't pulled in since.

No .......To RVs on Government weigh scales.

No requirement to stop at a weigh scale with an RV. VERY occasionally they will do a special campaign for safety check, legal weights. I've seen it once here in BC in 10 years.

Not in most states, you need to learn to READ the signs as like Florida/California will make you pull into the scales (there are signs stating such) and for the most part it is a pass through and not looking for weight, BUT there is a some noise from states that are looking into the choice of making it mandatory, and if that happens it might change, but only time will tell when and what this really means.
So like all state laws you as the driver are FULLY responsible to know and or read the signs on the roadway to know if you are to do or not do something.

Oh let me just say a large number of folks think there is no state that require a CDL for using or driving a rv, while it is true you will NOT need a cdl to drive and rv but some states do have you get and pass a additional driving test for driving an rv, like Pennsylvania, California, New York is working on a new law and many others. So change is on the way as rving becomes more and more popular, so just be warned!

Have a noncommercial cdl or ncdl in PA.

As soon as they can find a way to tax it they will make the changes.

DOT will have to come get me, I have no plans to stop. When I drove a commercial vehicle I dodged all the scales anyway and I ran two log books
