This applies to Rv tow vehicles with a GVWR of under 12,100 lbs.

So If I were a resident of BC with my 14k DRW that has a SAE rated RAWR of 9,750# and I loaded it to that and didn't add a single pound to my front axle weight of 5,250# bringing my actual loaded weight to 15k what would happen???

Nothing according to IBC motor vehicle act if you had 15k GVWR registration;
Maximum gross weight for axles
**7.16 (1) A person must not, without an overload permit, drive or operate on a highway a vehicle loaded or configured so that

(a) the gross weight on an axle exceeds the manufacturer's rated capacity for that axle or for the brake or suspension system with which the axle is equipped, ...**

And of course we know in BC you may register your truck at a GVWR which can be the sum of the vehicle mfg axle ratings or the vehicle mfg GVWR.


Most rv folks are assuming BC GVWR registration has to be the door sticker GVWR number.


Thanks!

The clicky is a fact sheet and not a enforceable weight code. There are 3-4 versions floating around RV websites but they all say the same thing down towards the bottom of the fact sheet they all say quote...
BC info sheet
**Information on this Info sheet is subject to
change without notice. In the event of
conflict with this Info Sheet and the Motor
Vehicle Act and Regulations, the
Acts and Regulations shall apply**
Now go to BC MVA Regulations for actual code wording and proper registration numbers for any size vehicle.

^^^^ I figure if those who prepared the government fact sheet can't interpret the Motor Vehicle Act and Regulations properly I'm not even going to try.

From my experience in BC you cannot exceed your GVWR,I TRIED, NO WAY.You can deregistera 3500 below the 11600 for a srw to use as personal business and pleasure, at 11800 gvwr i was looking at a log book for personal business use exceeding 6 days a month use.
