I do this only when the station is closed and unmanned.

If you want to get weighed and have a truck stop near you, they're usually inexpensive and easy to use.

interesting about 10,000 lbs. I just bought and F 250 and it is derated to 9,900 to avoid such things. In Ontario I have pulled in to the scales, they are behind the actual inspection station, and weighed, no one has asked ever. The actual weigh stations are full vehicle inspection now looking for defective trucks and trailers.

RV's are exempt from weigh station. Unless of course the sign states RV also. I have never seen that but someone posted a picture of one somewhere, awhile back.

We pull our 5th wheel with a full size Kenworth truck and do not pull into the weigh scales, never did with the one ton pick up either, as most have said only commercial vehicles.

Truck stop with CAT scale or a friendly local quarry that may let you run across their scales. I have one closeby that lets me weigh my rig (of course, I buy stone from them from time to time and I know the guy, so that helps too.)

I have a recycle station down the road from me. I've gotten weighed there before with my old rig. When I was active duty military and doing a move, the typical charge for weighing my U-Haul truck was $5 at a local scale.
