Do you follow DOT? Are you hauling for hire? How is the truck licensed?I am going to be pulling a 32' gooseneck w/dual wheel & dual axle trailer with a crew cab 4x4 diesel on it. Tow vehicle is a Chevy crew cab single wheel 4x4 diesel.
My question is am I required to stop @ the scales along the way???
theres loopholes to all of it the best way to get around it is to do what 1800 said.In most state you are either Recreation, private, or Motor carrier. If you are making money from the sale or delivery of cargo you are under DOT up to a GVWR. Consult your local HPD. Or do as the rest and put Not For Hire on your rig and go.
you are probably pushing 8 ton with just the tow vehicle and trailer with nothing on it oke:We have completed our trip without stopping @ the scales. Sign B4 the scales says anything over 8 ton must scale. I don't think we are that heavy, but I do have a class A CDL for tractor trailer w/ air brake.
First haul w/ the gooseneck in the truck & it pulled like a dream, both loaded & empty
Thanks To all !!!
