License plate cost

I did a search of this site and only found info on motorhomes but not 5ers. My previous 5th wheel puller was also used to haul construction equipment and I had a 24k tag. When pulling our camper, I never had to stop at a weigh station, they waved me on through. Probably a silly question but does the tag have to cover weight of truck and trailer for a 5th wheel?

Depends on the state you are registering in. Call your local DMV.

No recreational trailers in Calif. weigh stations....CHP will get upset if you pull in there, not to mention the horns from the big rigs!

To answer the OP's question, it all depends on your home states laws. Where I'm at I have to register for the weight the truck can carry. After much of my own research I found out that they go off the plates around here, or at least that's what they people said that I talked to (several DMV employees and police officers). The trailers weight is registered on its own plate. But ALWAYS check your own laws to find out what you need to do. If you are still confused make calls. They are there for that very reason.

Well, the DMVs aren't always in the know--getting the TX license for my F450, they have the GVWR at 10k, not the actual 14.5k. Doesn't bother me, but they aren't all up to speed.
And, the title has the max capacity blank and actual weight at 8600.
I would never pull into a weigh station unless directed to by an officer or some specific signage.
