I keep seeing truck weight limits posted around town. I was wondering if they apply to RVs as well.

I think you will find the limits apply to any vehicle - - it is marked with "truck" probably because they are the ones most likely to be in that weight range.

Would you want to take your rig over a bridge that is marked at a limit below the weight of your rig?

David is correct. A pound is a pound no matter what the vehicle is called. In Central Florida we even have a weight trap at a bridge that DOT makes a bunch of $s from. It is the Northern entrance road to a popular CG. The bridge says 10 ton weight limit. Not many DPs qualify to us the bridge. There is no place to turn around. The CG tells everyone to approach the CG from the South.
