X2. The Ram with cloth interior was seriously ugly and uncomfortable compared to the Ford XLT cloth. But you step up to the leather interiors on the Ram and they are really nice- right now. But I, too, wonder what those leather covered dashes will look like in 10 years after having the sun beating straight down onto them, especially for folks like me in the South.

How much? Depends how much over...

There are a hundred other threads trying to justify being over gross.

I want ( need) to be under gross.
Even though I'm not " commercial"
I am considered as such, with my truck being over 10k gvwr.

Are you saying you are considered commercial in Canada because your truck is over 10K GVWR and you therefore must adhere to weight restrictions legally? If so, it seems you could have just bought a 2500 and not worried about being weighed???

Pretty much. It's a little looser.
I could, reg my truck at 9990, and not be commercial. But then, I would be over my gross of 9990.
Which I don't want.

The public insurance corporation just changed a bunch of rules for my instance. ( over 10k but not commercial)
I don't think, even they know what they are doing.

Rcmp tell me I have to go through scales.. Until in told otherwise ( maybe by dot) I shall do so.

This is new, since August.
I have not had a chance to pass by a scale with the trailer to see what they say.

It really doesn't matter the reasoning.

I want to be under my sticker.
If others choose otherwise.. That's up to them.

But he doesn't want to be over his trucks ratings, so 2500 not an option

Yeah, but me (240), wife (no comment), 2 kids, 2 car seats, and dog plus side steps, cover, bed mat, blocking, and cooler only put me 700lbs north of the empty sticker. Hell, even with my campers WnP 30FBW I'm only 700 more than that scale says your truck weighs?

OK. My bad. I was just pointing out my truck was a pig as well.

Maybe edit that first post, too.

I think common sense needs to take over at some point but non-existent Laws?
In the states this is correct. Kenny is in Canada. Perhaps it's different there eh?

Hey Kenny, I wonder if they let home state rules apply or do they make US RV's pull into weight stations? I've only towed up there once going to Nova Scotia but never saw a weight station.

Oh, and in MA where I am DRW must register commercial. It has nothing to do with GVWR. The law states that any vehicle with more than 4 tires on the ground must be registered commercial. It's a crazy law enacted to stop contractors from registering with passenger plates. Now they just by SRW trucks and do the same and RVers get punished with higher cost registrations, insurance, and annual inspections...

Usually, if you are legal in the state/province you are reg in, you are ok.

The only place I have heard different is British Columbia, and double towing. They will turn you around.
