Weigh stations

Sorry if this has been hashed out B4. I have a 2014 Seneca and a H2 Hunmer as toad. Live in Colorado and will be traveling to Florida later this year. Will I need to stop at weigh stations along the way? I assume that they dont want to be bothered by us rvers but last week I saw a sign in New Mexico that said all comercial and all towed vehicles must stop. I didnt stop but really got me to think about those weigh stations especially when it said ALL TOWED VEHICLES.

I have never stopped, except at CBP Checkpoints or the Agricultural Inspection Station that we have between AZ and CA.

It is my understanding that the signs apply only to commercial vehicles. I agree it is misleading with the way they are worded. I would stop at the first one and get clarification from someone in authority.

Keep in mind this may vary from state to state.

I see those signs when we go to NM too. Pretty confusing. I just drive by (towing my Jeep) and no one has stopped me yet. I did half way expect to see flashing lights in the mirror the first few times but no one seemed to care. I'm pretty sure that just applies to commercial vehicles.

And if you are stopped at a CBP Checkpoint or an Agricultural Inspection Station, you don't legally need to answer any questions including your citizenship status, but have the right to ask two questions if you are not allowed to continue on your way or asked to pull over to a secondary checkpoint;
Am I being detained?
Am I free to go?

Note: CBP Checkpoints between the USA and Mexico or Canada do not apply.

CBP Stations

All Customs and Border Patrol stations along the southern border are exactly 60 miles from the nearest port of entry. After that, there are none.

Funny though how you are stopped on I8 driving east to west through southern CA or SR90 driving from Sierra Vista, AZ towards I10.

Sorry for "polluting" this thread.

I have never stopped pulling my TT. Now in Florida they want all rental trailers to stop, so I stopped when I was pulling a U-Haul trailer, but never my TT.

My running mate is a retired Customs Colonel and BP Check points have to be within 100 miles of the boarder and try not answering are you a US citizen? I past BP checks weekly and I know they say here comes that GMC shopping cart again! (wife's vehicle)

As for the original question, the weigh stations are for commercial vehicles. IN NM they will check live stock and lately I have seen check points checking boats for Zebra mussels.
