Short and simple answer, if you are a "commercial vehicle", and have a CDL license to operate what you are driving, stop.......if not keep rolling.

Link didn't post on the initial post. As you can see it is quite custom and gives me the storage ability of the old bed as well.

If it is private owned and used only for personal use, NO. If t is registered to a business and used for profit, YES. If pulling a trailer and for commercial use a class A CDL will be required as well as a DOT physical.

Some states (CA used to do it) required you to stop if the rig was registered to an LLC because they considered the LLC to be a business. I think CA quit doing that now though

I would not want to play chicken against the DOT with an LLC and not have all my ducks present and accounted for. Not a lion's den I would want to chance.

Pull into a line of trucks entering a scale and you will just annoy some truckers who will assume you are sneaking in for a free weighing.

Also you might want to take about 3" letters and on the box door right behind the cab put "private rv".

The "private rv" is a great idea. Also considered just "RV not for hire". Dont know which would be a better option.

The question is not just about what you're driving, it can also be about you. The question can be are you being paid/driving for hire?
