Take it for what you want. Some people only hear what they want.
I will admit (again)- I've never stopped. But, like I said before- if I get pulled over for it, I don't have a leg to stand on.

I may need to "re-think" this.

To be fair, I have NEVER seen an RV in that line.
I HAVE seen lots of RV's drive right past (including me) in the 4 years I have been towing.

Any Troopers out there want to "weigh in?"

I'd be willing to hang my hat that in most states, if the sign reads "all trucks", you're *supposed* to pull in but as was mentioned before- you'll be regard as "in the way" by the troopers and truckers alike.

Lou, this source was quoted earlier in the thread and is wrong for Maryland unless they're spelling out the "spirit" of the law.

IMO, if you want to know the actual & correct answer- contact the states you'll be driving in.

So I see. Looks like I will be in that line from now on.

Here's my take .

As a truck driver full time in the past and as part of my many duties now, unless your a permitted over sive or over weight otr truck and trailer the dot or weight governing official knows what your truck and trailer should weight. 80, 000 lbs or less.
They also know what your truck and trailer should weight by axle.
Now when us rv towing individuals pull a unit through the scale they have no idea what your specific vehicle and trailer requirements are without pulling each individual unit around back to check the stickers and capacities.

Food for thought.
