Weigh Station Northern IL / Southern WI


I'm a newbie here and would first like to thank everyone who participates on this forum. I've spent many hours on here and have found answers to the vast majority of my questions. Good stuff.

I'm in the process of giving new life to the '92 Winnebago Adventurer P-Chassis (7.4 ltr) I purchased a few months ago. This will include a set of SuperSteer coil springs. My existing coils are in a bad way and the air bags are shot. Based on what I've read it sounds like the SuperSteers are a good way to go. The trick is I'm having a difficult time finding a place to weigh each wheel/side seperately. I was able to get the coach weighed - each axle - but not each wheel.

I've done some searches on here and have begun making calls but thought I might get lucky and someone here might know a location that can do this in Northern IL or Southern WI? If not I'll just keep calling.

Thanks again for a great forum,

A BIG WELCOME from East Tn. I'd recommend calling your local law enforcement office to find the closest scales. A metal scrap yard might also be able to weigh the coach.
Again welcome

You'll have to look some, but try farm supply stores, fertilizer dealers, moving companies, garbage dumps (landfills), grain elevators, and sand and gravel suppliers. When you get a NO from someone, ask them and maybe they will know. Good luck.

Finally found a weigh station

Thanks for the recommendations. I finally found a place to weigh all 4 corners individually. Lester's Material Service in Grayslake IL on route 83 (~1 hour north of Chicago). Scale was nice and flat with the ground around it and they let me do if for 0$'s. Nice folks.

Welcome to irv2.
We used to live in Antioch, IL. Glad you found a place to get weighed.
Hope you did it with MH fully loaded.
