In my work truck which is a 3/4 ton gas I have to stop if I am on the clock and pulling a trailer. If I am off the clock pulling a trailer for personal reasons I don't have to stop. If I was driving a commercial truck with over a 10,000 gvw I would have to stop at every weigh station while on the clock. As I understand it you only have to stop with a personal vehicle is if you are making money with what you are hauling such as a race car that you win cash with.
