When approaching weight station pull off, accelerate, it gets everybodies attention. We don't need no stinkin badges.

I have been RV for over 40 years all over the USA. Most of the time with 5th wheels and the last 4 1/4 years with my motorhome and toad.
I have almost 50,000 miles on the motorhome and have travelled in about 45 states and have never stopped at any weigh station.
My gross vehicle weight is 26,000 lbs which is light for a gas motorhome.
I have never been pulled over or ticketed for passing up any weigh stations.

As far as weight stations and the MCSAP (dot trained PD) .. I would not bother with you as you are private. Your rig looks legit and they are mostly looking for commercial since that is where the issues mostly lay.

With your rig and the large units I'd be more concerned with your license class Being high enough. Over 10k registered trailer weight and registered truck weight combination that puts you over 26k you need a non commercial cdl. But that would require a car stop for. That violation. Or reasonable suspicion of another violation that is articulatable, not just to check your license class.

For the little guys with the way to big trailer I'd be nervous as well depending on how over loaded you look. But that is a whole nother topic,..


ME, I do not stop nor will I because, again not a guarantee, but they want commercial traffic, not you. Over loaded personal truck in PA $200.. Over loaded semi, 20k... What would you want?

Here in Arizona:

"Driver's license and CDL manuals imply that a CDL is required above 26,000 lb GVWR.
However, A.R.S. 28-3102 exempts RV's from CDL requirement. "




Here is a great link to check all states.

Not here in PA, no exemption. Nice to have in AZ. Some one here from NV could not even register their truck because they registered it for a trailer over the size of their trucks ratings. Every state can be or is VASTLY diffrent from each other.

Even though I am not commercial and not considered as such in PA as one.. Because I am registered as a 4a weight class (11k lbs) I am a motor carrier so I technically CAN be dot'd.
