I didn't know that. I have a friend (yes, a friend) that has had a Mt LLC for many years and he's never stopped at a weigh station in California. I don't see how they would know he was LLC when he drove by.

As far as the OP goes, if he's towing a 5th wheel I don't think he'd get a second look from an LEO.

Being paid to drive has nothing to do with being required to go through a scale. Nor does the type of vehicle. The ONLY issue is are you a Common Carrrier with a DOT number. If so you must go through the scales. However certain states require certain types of vehicles to enter scales even though not a common carrier but those exceptions are signed well before the scale. If your vehicle is a private Coach with no DOT Reg Number you are free to pass by.

Well got my rig. And just hauled the kountry aire 500 miles. Pulled excellent. Actually tamed the rough ride a bit. The heavy 5th wheel and the fresh water tank half full probably helped. Averaged 8mpg at between 65 and 68mph. 6 speed allison hardly ever came out overdrive. The 8.1L gas engine does really well.
