I drove over the road for 41 years and I have seen many RV's pull into Weigh Stations. All licensed transporters have to stop at all of them like any other commercial vehicle. Most states do not require private RV's to stop at them. I recently took a trip to Virginia in my Greyhawk passing thru Maryland on interstate 68. The sign at the scale said " ALL VEHICLES OVER 5 TON MUST WEIGH". Nothing suggesting only commerical vehicles. I went thru the scale and stopped on the platform and waited about 5 seconds for the green light. I saw the following posted on a different forum. Someone had emailed the MDTA and asked if RV's had to stop at state weigh stations.

Thank you for your email and for contacting the Maryland Transportation Authority (MDTA). Financed solely by toll revenue, the MDTA is an independent State agency that finances, owns, operates and maintains the State's eight toll facilities.
We appreciate your bringing this matter to our attention. All vehicles with a gross vehicle weight or gross vehicle weight rating of greater than 10,000 pounds must stop at open weigh stations. Only vehicles that are operating in commerce may be subject to a safety inspection.

Thank you again for your email, and please let us know if we may assist you further.

If the sign says "ALL VEHICLES OVER 5 TON", I go in. If it says "ALL COMMERCIAL VEHICLES OVER 5 TON", I drive by.
