If they want a search get a warent


"Trucks" are defined by state law. In IL, a "Truck" is any truck, including pickups. Now, nobody stops at scales and the ISP doesn't really care... but technically you are a truck. Commercial has nothing to do with it. Overweight doesn't apply to only commercial vehicles.

In addition... if there is a road stop like the the OP describes, have fun ignoring them. LOL.

I am in Canada (Gaspé) right now with my F250 and 13,000 # Wildcat. Never gave it a thought, never questioned at the border coming in, and I am not going to worry it.
Go RV'ing and don't sweat the small stuff. Canada wants our money so I seriously doubt they will cause problems.

My posts relate only to the Province of Ontario. Canada has 10 provinces and 3 territories. 5er_tom is in Gaspe which would be the Province of Quebec. Border guards are federal employees and they don't care about provincial things like the Highway Traffic Act here in Ontario.

I don't know if the laws in the other provinces and the territories are similar or totally different. It's no different than US states having their own laws on truck safety and commercial vehicles.

If you're thinking about coming up here, please don't let my posts make you think twice. Before I bought my new F250 this year, I had no idea that these regs were in place. The Ford dealer who I bought from insisted on registering the truck with a RGW to cover my TT's weight. Almost every other dealer would have ignored the trailer weight and registered it for it's 9900# GVWR which is under the 4500 kg truck weight threshold. I don't know any other RVers here who have their pickups registered for more than 4500 kg and many are pulling TTs and 5ers that are well over 2800 kg. I suspect that that part of the law is not well known because it's rarely enforced here in Ontario.

EDIT: It's interesting, and telling, that in Ontario RVers do not need to stop at highway scales for weighing. They only seem to care about trucks clearly being used for commercial purposes.

The red dye is put in at pipeline when you load your truck uses less than a quart of dye for load of diesel which most trucks have 7500 gallons on a loaded truck full

In Saskatchewan, my F250 is registered as a personal use vehicle as I do not use it to make money other than drive it to work once in a while. On my registration there is a RGVW spot that shows me having a 19,000 lb registered gross vehicle weight. The RGVW does not have to be on the registration if the combined weight of the truck and trailer do not exceed 11,000 lbs. Also if you pull a trailer that weighs over 11,000 lbs (as weighed at the scales not GVWR) you need a class 1 license or a G endorsement on your license. I also carry a certificate of safety compliance in the truck which is required if I travel stateside or to other provinces. I always check the laws of the provinces and states we travel through to ensure I know the speed limits etc thus ensuring we have a trouble free trip. We also do not have to stop at highway scales but the highway patrol units will pull over RVers who they feel are overloaded and well if you are not legaly registered you will be leaving your trailer behind.

I believe he's talking about a tank trailer when it is loaded at the refinery to go out for delivery to local stations.
