You will occasionaly see a sign when approaching a weigh station telling operators of all vehicles over 5 Tons to stop . Those instructions are only for commercial  vehicles. I have never pulled into a weigh station with either of our class As. 

Have gotten up close and personal with them many times as a trucker though.🙄

According to their web site, "Maryland weigh stations require all trucks over 5 tons to weigh."
My motorhome is not registered as a truck.

Of course, as I was told when I registered my coach in Wisconsin, we are all subject to spot inspections if an officer deems it necessary. Since we look very much like a commercial coach, I do look in the mirrors for flashing lights every time we pass a weigh station.
