Is there any state that requires you to pull on to truck scales when towing TT. It's not required in KS.

So my chevy truck has a gvwr of 10,000 lbs and most states say passenger or specialty vehicles either singer or in combination (towing a trailer) with GVWR of 10,000lbs or more, so what is a specialty vehicle? If they consider it a specialty vehicle then all new 2500 and 3500 would need to stop, and our trailer has a GVWR of 12995lbs, in Kansas I have to increase my declared tow rate to 24,000lbs from the standard 12000 tag this moves my tags to the heavy truck registration, so am I now considered a truck and need to stop at the weight stations? Based on Kansas it says all vehicles registered as trucks are required to stop at motor carrier safety and weight inspection station when signs direct them to do so.

I would define it as a vehicle that has been altered from the way it was originally built.
