Hello all , OK I know this may be a question you've seen before but bear with me.
Where do you get your RV weighed ? , on our way home from our last road trip I pulled into a truck stop to fuel up and noticed a weigh scale , are these for truckers only ? or can an RV or for that fact any type of vehicle use them and is there a cost?.

There used to be a scale at the farm feed store in Washington, MI. Since I moved away a year ago I am not sure if it still there.

Yes for a fee the private scles will weigh you. Suggest you pick a time when they are not real busy. As far as public scales on the interstate not sure if you will be welcome in all states. I used a scale at a local feed mill when I was in WI.

Hello Ralph O , I thought of that but have heard (if true or not I don't know) that they don't like Rver's to do that , I guess I should just stop and ask next time I pass one and find out the truth for myself, thanks for the response.

Make sure your Fuel, & propane tanks are full. At least a half tank of fresh water and all your normal passengers. The reason I say half tank fresh water this is how most of us run some will carry a full tank. AS far as BLK/Gray I did my emty. This is also how I normally travel on the road.

I weigh at one of those truck fuel stations like you have seen. It has CAT scales and costs $7.50. But like somone else said you can not get individual wheel weights.

I have weighed mine at home in my driveway, but we won't go into that... From personal experience, I will let you know that, at least in my home state, you are welcome to weigh at the state operated weigh stations. Do yourselves and the weigh station personnel a favor and give the scale a call before going in. Please remember the weigh stations exist for enforcement purposes and traffic volume will dictate how cooperative the staff may be at a given time. Off peak hours are best for weighing your RV.

Truck stop scales are there for public use. They charge a fee, so the more detailed you get, the more it'll cost you.

The CAT weigh stations nearby our home can not weigh individual wheels. It drives me crazy. I hope to be able to do this at an Interstate truck weigh station too. Hope others reading this will confirm it's ok to do!
