Greetings!

In California, they don't want you, period! They even put up signs saying "No Pickups", just for the folks that don't know what a real truck is. (An LTV ain't)

NO ! We are not interested in NON commercial vehicles.

Unless the sign specifically says RV's are to pull in, just keep on cruising.

I always get a good laugh when something besides a semi pulls though the scales and beware if you do they will sometimes pull you into the inspection station to inspect your rig just to mess with you.

I have traveled in the majority of the lower 48, and have not seen one yet that required RV's to pull in. However, there used to be agricultural inspection stations that required all enclosed type vehicles to pull through, including p/ups with camper shells, but I have not seen one of these either in a long time. These would also be signed to that effect.

ACCORDING TO THE FEDERAL DOT book, all motor homes, travel trailers etc are exempt from the law of pulling into a scale house UNLESS noted by a highway sign!

If the DOT cops did not get there donuts and coffee in the morning
They can surley pull you over to a safe spot and have you axle out on there portable scales !

So with that in mind, Take a word from the wise and do not over load !

Good day fellow campers
