MTO - Yellow Stickers, and RV's

Morning All,

I'm hoping some Ontario folks can help me with first hand knowledge; because what I'm finding online keeps conflicting with itself...

I've bought a new TV - Ford F350 diesel... It's "yellow-stickered" because the gross is over 4500 kg - but I don't need to run a log, because I'm under 6000 kg. That part is easy...

Where I'm getting the run around, is if I need a yellow sticker on my TT...

I know other trailers (floats, dumps, box trailers, etc) need an annual inspection, because the truck is stickered; but I keep reading about an exemption for campers - yet I can't find an actual MTO reference to it. I don't mind getting the trailer inspected, if I have to - but if it's not a requirement, I'd rather not.

So - to my Ontario comrades - what do you know, what's your experiences been, about MTO, annual inspections, and campers?

Hi

I have an F550 with a yellow sticker. The yellow trailer sticker is not necessary for RVs only for commercial trailers.

It's off topic but I have a question. Do you have to get the truck inspected annually because you are Over 4500 kg?

Yes, that is correct. You can't renew the plates if you are not current. It involves a brake inspection.

TTT.

False. Any trailer over 7000lbs GVWR needs a sticker, except for a TT. My non-COM car hauler needs a sticker.

Technically, if the truck needs a sticker even a 1000lb single axle boat trailer needs a sticker if the truck hauling it has a sticker. I've never heard of anybody having an issue with the MTO over a non stickered boat trailer.

I have a MTO highway scale near my house, and they told me that first hand.
