I went down to the quarry this morning. Nice guys but they said they're not "certified weighers" and the state will reject the slip. I don't think it's the first time they've been asked. Who knows if that's actually true but anyway.

I've booked a tow for tomorrow to take it to the CAT scale that's 30 miles away. I called a few places and found one that tows for the school districts and hospitals and quoted the lowest price. $125/hr. Which seems incredibly reasonable. Probably 4-5 hours max (taken from the time the wrecker leaves/returns to the yard). I'm happy about that price. I was expecting it to be more like $1k.

Funny thing was when I talked to him, he all but finished my sentences when I mentioned the fact that it was a conversion. I think they've done this a few times before.

Thanks for everyone's help. I'll let you know how it goes. I will be glad to have this behind me.

Smile NJ weight slip follow up

How did the weighing work out in the end? Did towing there work and did you get a slip? Did you successfully transfer the title to an RV from a school bus? Would like to hear how this turned out!

EC is right....DO NOT try plates from another vehicle. Here in Texas if you are caught, doing that, even with a trailer, they can confiscate the vehicle. That would surely screw up your trip to Burning Man.
