"just under 5 tons" - actual weights? or GVWR? Maryland's rules are for GVWR, not for actual weights. It was one of the things that I asked - because in my truck and with the family, we come in around 9,000 lbs.
They do really check. When we came through, he put a traffic cone behind the camper, wheel chocks in front of and behind the wheels, had my wife put it in park, and then scooted around underneath on a creeper. Once he was satisfied, he undid everything and gave us a clean bill of health.
Oops, I just checked and my GVWR is 14,200. Looks like I violated several rules while in Maryland.
According to my title my unladen weight is 9,109. I am guessing that is the weight as it came from Forest River.
