Similar to what ependydad said, here in Ontario, the letter of the law says all pickups are commercial vehicles and any pickup with a registered weight over 4500 kg (about 9900#) or towing a trailer that weighs more than 2800 kg (about 6671#) is subject to annual inspections and needs sticker. In practice, RVs don't get pulled over for weighing unless something looks really unsafe and they don't have to stop at weigh scales. Folks towing flat trailers with ATVs and other personal use things may get stopped more often but again they don't need to go into a weigh scale.

I just discovered that our weigh scales are open for free use when unmanned so they are a nice alternative to paying at a CAT scale.

To the OP, I suggest this is a question you won't get a reliable answer to on a forum. You need to check with the state's authority. I've found that websites can be confusing so you may need to call them directly.

OK try this. Google "Do RVs have to stop at weigh stations in(pick your state) And if you are traveling to another state/states google them prior to your trip.

Make sure it is a state operated site. But i am sure most on here already know that.

So after reading this thread not one person has said they always stop at weigh stations. Hopefully the OP understands that no, you donít have to stop at a weigh station.

For some reason there are always those who like to muddle the issue by getting into a discussion about defining a truck, or what a state law says, or weight restrictions and technicalities. For the life of me I donít understand why people want to take a question that only needs a simple answer and turn it into a thread of confusion. Not very helpful to a new RVer if you ask me.


Not one person on this thread has said yes, they stop at all the weigh stations. Not one person has said they got ticketed for not stopping at a weigh station. So cutting to the chase, no you don't have to stop a weigh stations and none of us do.
