At the end, it does sound like weigh police after all.

Those with beer can bury them in the snow.

I used to race snow machines back when the free air was the machine to beat..LOL..Just sold my last one,last year and I can say,I sure would not want to stick that unit with or without the truck camper..A winch would be a must and even that wouldn't help in alot of cases..Just sticking a snowmobile is a terrible experience sometimes..

Just like truck campers on a pickup,the weight can be your friend or your worse enemy in snow..

.... if I didn't run out of Ramen, whisky and sled gas!

Ramen... ate so much of that in college that I will only hit my stock of 10 cases ONLY when the SHTF and the zombies come out.

Whiskey... got pleny of that too, but the more I stay home in these wierd time, the more I go through. (note to self: buy more Jack.)

Costco Canadian Whiskey, all I can say is try it...
I love Ramen, but we butchered cattle in college, so didn't have to eat Ramen. We were the poor college kids cooking T Bones and pot roast for dinner!
Don't you live on the Western Slope somewhere? We used to ride the Flattops and Grand Mesa alot...2 of my all time favorite snomachine spots.

Give it a rest, bud.

Unless you're an expert on snocats too....in which case you'd not be arguing about it, so obviously you're not.
I'm not an expert either, but having driven one before and helping get a groomer un-stuck once, no they're not powder machines. Just like the folks who think a wheeler or SxS with tracks can go anywhere a snomachine does......just = long walk or alot of digging...

The so called weight police, have a jurisdiction that primarily deals with commercial vehicles, technically a dual wheeled axle can haul 22 thousand pounds and not be overweight the same with the steer axle. That does not mean you can haul that weight it is a guide for commercial vehicles there is also a bridge law (nothing to do with actual bridges) the distance between the front axle and drive axles and then the rear trailer axles, 22 thousand pounds usually can never be shifted to the steer axle cab over trucks usually can shift more than a conventional tractor, the overall weight of most tractor trailer trucks is a maximum of 80 thousand pounds. I doubt any state scale house or officers with portable scales have ever stopped any truck and camper and checked their gross vehicle weight sticker. If your rig wobbles uncontrollable or your bumper is dragging the ground you might get stopped for a safety violation. If you drive through a state weigh station in a R.V. they usually wave you on unless you pull to the side and they are not busy with trucks backed up then they will weigh you give you a print out and say goodby

Nope. Weight police on this forum is the imaginary group composed of members here who complain about what others are doing. They have no legal standing, but it doesn’t stop them from letting their opinions be known.

Thanks for playing. [emoticon]

I much prefer my ATV. If it gets stuck I just hook up my winch cable and within minutes I'm out.

I've got a snowmobile stuck and it sucks. LOL

The one I got stuck was a pretty big one, tons of power and FAST.

FAST = I'd kill myself. [emoticon]
