Do I have to pull into Weigh Scales

I am picking up my first RV, it is a 5w and is registered as a 33' but full
length is 39.7 and with my truck I will be looking at apprx 56'. So to get to my question, do I need to pull into the weigh scales while on the road? and do I need to do them all? Please let me know as I am really concerned as I don't want to get pulled over for passing one up!!! Thanks in advance for any help,
JudiVan

No you do not need to pull in. You are not a commercial vehicle, you pull a RV

In Maryland, per the letter of the law, you're "technically" supposed to, but no one is going to stop you if you don't AND you'll likely get sneers and jeers if you do.

Rules vary by state/province.

Please educate, and don't listen to a forum.
