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?
