Weighing MH on I-5

Going to Oregon from California next week for our first trip and will be traveling north on I-5 from Kettleman City, would love to get the MH weighed @ all 4 corners, I looked at the weigh station here but it's not possible on this one, anyone know of a place where I can have this done on the way?

In Oregon, visit a "Closed" weigh sation, the scales are left on. I have found the scales near Ashland, OR work well

Leale's RV on South 7th just off of monterey road or just off of 101 freeway has a protable scale and will weigh your corners for you. don't know price.

x2 on Oregon "closed" scales.

I did that three years ago (truck and trailer then) and took my sweet time weighing everything I wanted for free (including trailer tongue).
Free and no time limit...

Man, wish I lived closer....

Have fun on your trip!!

okay...
now for the completely uninitiated....

i have often wondering driving by a closed scale on the highway if one could "drive in" and weight their motorhome - and from this - it sounds like the answer is "YES"
so thank you for this info

now...
what do i need to know / how exactly do I do it?

regards, pdq

If I typed the URL properly it will translate.. In a frame on the left side is a link about weighing your rig.. They do it for a small fee, provide some additional service as well,

They are mobile, so where you are,, not so important,, They have agents all over the place. Odds are you have camped beside one or two of them from time to time. I have.
