In Florida you buy a tag based on the gross weight of the truck. Trailer weight does not count since the trailer is tagged separately based on its weight. I would not want to be over that weight .A 5th wheel could possibly be different but I don't know, for sure.

B and B make sure your truck is registered as a personal vehicle and not commercial, when I went to renew my plates (the dealer got them for me when i bought the truck) they said it was registered as commercial, they were able to change it right away.

So I checked with the state police and confirmed in Illinois the truck is registered for its weight and the camper is registered for its weight. You don't add the weight of the camper to the truck for plates. Also, our truck B plate is fine because we are at 7500 lbs. and a B goes up to 8000 lbs. No need for a truck D plate. Thanks to everyone for your comments! I love this forum!
