I like this interpretation but, according to everything I've read and from what I was told by the truck dealer and the notary (both of whom work with this stuff every day) RV or not, if the trailer is registered over 10k, the truck should be registered for the truck and trailer combo max weight.

I do not deal with large trailers much so I can not answer from my experience, but my neighbor works for PennDOT doing audits on inspection garages. Just last week he had been telling me about a guy running a landscaping business where his trailer was over 10,000lbs and his truck was stopped. He had been cited one because of the 10,000lbs trailer he needed a CDL and two because of the trailer / combination he needed a bi-annual inspection not the semi-annual like most of use. It did not matter that he was a landscaper (commercial). His point was that the trailer was over 10,000 which means CDL and bi-annual inspections. He said it was up to the vehicle owner to be in compliance and correctly registered, licensed, and inspected.

Now, I have been a cop for ten years (traffic officer at that) and had NEVER heard of this until last week. I think I am pretty good with this stuff including the PA vehicle code. I asked him that if I had never heard of this and this is what I DO for a living then how can Joe public who has no idea what Title 75 PA Vehicle Code even means know this... I got a shoulder shrug...

The key of course is "non-commercial" use.

Even using the company pickup to tow your RV is a no-no as far as the law is concerned (as I understand the law anyway). Using the pickup that has your company flash on it means stopping at weigh stations, too.

If you look at the truck registration rules, it is the GVWR of the truck alone that determines what you pay for registration.

Yes, you can even register your 1/2 ton as a car (allowed as long as the unladen weight is less than 5,000 pounds.), but don't get caught with it loaded beyond that.

That's correct at least for here in PA, no idea other states but I would guess theyd be similar.
