No, you do not have to stop at SD weigh stations unless you are a commercial vehicle.

Also be careful around some bridges and tunnels. On the east coast anyway there are some where RVs need to stop so they can check that the propane is off. This is the case in Norfolk, VA. Also in Baltimore there is a tunnel where vehicles carrying propane are not allowed in the tunnel at all, regardless of whether the propane is on or not.

No ... but ... you most certainly can be pulled over by the state officials if they observe what they feel is 'not good' ... and you will get the same inspection an over-the-road trucker gets ...


We all agree on the "No" answer .... but 'if they observe what they feel is 'not good'..... Care to add to that?

Ukon93, I pulled across I90 to the Black Hills and didn't stop at any and did not have any problems. The only place I have had to stop and get weighed was in Neberaska and I could not tell you the road I was on though. I do not think it applies to all roads in Nebraska or not.

I'm a native Cornhusker and I've driven all over this state. I don't know how you got corralled, (grin) but I don't know of anyplace in the state that weighs or inspects recreational vehicles.
Every weigh station sign I've seen states "recreational vehicles exempt" at the scales, in every state I've been through.

Mr Donut: Maybe they were pulled over because they had a Longhorn sticker on their rigs :-)

One time while driving a tour coach we had to pull in at the OHIO turnpike scale. When we were overweight the passengers had to get off and wait for the coach to be reweighed. After the weight was OK they all got back on and we went on our way. I have never figured that one out. I think it would have made as much sense if they just took all of their luggage out of compartment when we went on the scale and held it on their lap.
