Were they transporters??? If they were they are subject to commercial rules and regulations, I have a good feeling they were. Those are the only ones required to enter a weigh station, same for semis, you could put not for hire on the side of a truck and they do not have to enter, these threads are not but speculation and boredom

Yawn...

Not everywhere... I am not a transporter, but am required to pull into scales.
Just a 3500 with a 5th.

And in that listing, it says that many states require you to pull in.

I am not arguing the point either way...just trying to provide some information instead of just people's thoughts or guesses...

It appears that if I am passing through one of these listed states and instructed to then I would need to pull in...IMHO it is what it is...if you are that worried about it then maybe you shouldn't be towing...

I have pulled through 40 of the fifth states in the US and have never ever had to enter a DOT road scale. I have even had a stations turn on a LED sign saying you do not have to enter the scale house. This blew my mind the first time I saw this in WI on I90 near Janesville after you enter the state.


I have written different States DOT when I first had my first 5er back in 2007. And all of their reply's where if you are a private hauler towing a non-commercial trailer then you do not need to enter a scale house.


My total weight of truck and trailer is slightly under 21,000 LBS when towing.


What I would worry more about are you pulling with the correct driver licenses? Most states have a limit of less than 26,001 LBS on a standard drivers Licenses and anything over that you need to have a different licenses. Read your Drivers Licenses and see what it states.
