Are toy haulers required to stop at weigh stations/truck inspections or are they the same as all travel trailers{rv`s)
What about flatbed trailers hauling personal items?
Thanks in advance

Sometimes the advance signs will say "all vehicles towing must stop" I've seen that in the Midwest as well as OR.

I've never encountered anything requiring me to go thru the scales.

I cross this great country 2 times per year and up and down the West coast all winter. Never have stopped and no issues. Going into Cali dept of agriculture inspection for gypsy moth is the only inspection we have experienced.

Weight stations primarily exist to regulate heavy haulers and long distance drivers. For example, states generally restrict total rig loadweights to 80,000# (or something similar). There are also restrictions on driving hours that are confirmed by checking log books. So, in general, if you are not a long distance driver hauling heavy loads, weight stations are not for you.

Other than border patrol check points, we have never been obligated to pull into any weigh stations or anything similar with our toy hauler. I know a few who have thought the same thing and did so, they were sternly told to be on their way from the residing authorities.
