Legal stuff for RV’s
IF RV over 26000-pound PA residents need class “B” license, residents of other states abide by their states licensing laws. – DMV
RV size laws: 13.5″ – Height, 8.5′ Width on interstates, 8′ Width on interstates on many secondary roads. No specified length for trailers, but the total length cannot exceed 60′. Motorhomes can be 45′ with the combination of RV and Towed not to exceed 60′. Conventional 5th Wheel and Automobile transporters (plus overhang). . . . . . . . . . . . . 65 feet (Overhang: front – 3 feet, rear – 4 feet) P.23 Weight is generally 18000 per axle.
Double trailers appear to be OK just stay under 60′
Weigh stations – According to the Pennsylvania DOT if your over 26001 pounds you are automatically considered a commercial vehicle and you are required to enter the weigh station (Page 55 top). Upon further research, I have found evidence of only one person being stopped for not entering and he received a $380 fine. Most people vote ditch the scales. The turnpike, seems to force a RV’s in. My recommendation, use the document in the above link and call the phone numbers.
Required Equipment: Safety chain, breakaway switch, fire extinguisher in RV, flares or reflective signs, brakes required on trailers over 3,000 pounds or if gross weight of trailer exceeds empty weight of tow vehicle, or if weight of trailer exceeds 40% of tow-vehicle weight. Wipers/lights must be on when conditions arise.
Riding is permitted in fifth wheels if there is an audible and visual device with tow vehicle and fifth wheel has safety glass.
Overnight parking in state rest areas is not permitted. Source RV Trip Wizard
