So all this discusion made me go look at my registartion.
Truck is a 2018 F450, registeted on Oregon
On the registration, the box for weigh/length is blank.
No where else on the registration in an mention of weight.
On the DMV new vehicle registration "Notice of tranaction submitted" (registration submition) there is two boxes that have yes/no checkboxes.
one is "GVWR over 26000 lbs "
the other, "trailer over 8,000 lbs"
both are checked no on the application.

Everytime I drive over a fixed pot hole I’ll thank you and also Presdient Trump for his infrastructure plans.

Look at that link and the exemptions at the bottom. For being considered a liberal state they are pretty generous to y’all big truck guys RV’in.

i didnt notice the "minus the weight of a camper" before.
So there you have it.
like i have been saying RVs are excluded, even truck campers

Another tell is if you have a T-plate for a truck over 10k GVWR. Does your plate start with a T?

Being a big fan of Oregon and a liberal firearm owner raised in Alaska, I like to think that Oregon and Alaska is the most "common-sense states", though that's a pretty easy race to win.

Truck and RV regulation would mostly interest or effect rural Oregon, which is not in any way liberal (to me, anyways). Wether it's Christmas trees, cattle, hogs, or grass seed, Oregon has a huge agg output. There are substantial volumes of dirty, almost worn out Oregon farm trucks turning out their value every year.

Oregon is the home of Les Schwab, the famously high-customer-service tire dealer thats quite excited to work on or replace the 19.5" tires at any of their many locations through the city or across the state.

no, none of my 10+ personsl trucks had truck plates.
All my friends have pickups, most 350/3500 SRW, all of them are regular plates.
I have hauled just about everything in my truck, hay, gravel, building materal, fire wood you name it, and so have my friends, but only for ourselves.
Before i bought my first F450 i checked with DMV and my insuance agent because I was told some states and insurers consider a f450 comercial only.
The DMV reply was as long as it was for personal use, no special plates. My insurer added a "rider" and it is insured as a F350 DRW.
The only people i know that had truck plates had business like tractor work, hauling for hire, and landscaping.
I have always been told you dont need truck plates unless you have a business hauling stuff.
like i posted above, my truck does not have a weight on the registration. As hungry as the state is for money (you will pay an Oregon vehicle privilege tax of .5% of the retail price on your new truck) if there was any reason I would need truck plates on my F450, they would have asked.

Yea I am in a very democrat area and vote for the best candidate. My next door neighbors moved to Portland to retire a couple years ago.

What im suggesting is follow the law and pay your taxes. If the camper isnít included in payload and you arenít exceeding your vehicle ratings just document it by bringing that form and advertised weights with you when traveling.

Im not a big fan of fake news for the record.

perhaps it isn't as optioned out as my Lariat will be, but its not too far off. That looks 900lbs different, though I havent seen a sticker for a XL F-450.

So does that chart list the total registration fee, or it that added to another fee, like an excise tax.. to register your truck for different weights?
Here every 1 ton and above truck has to get commercial plates, even if for personal use.

As near as I can tell, the 2017 aluminum trucks are about the same weight as the earlier steel trucks. My featherweight aluminum F450 weighed 9247# from the factory, ~9700# with my tonneau and hitch.

Itís a King Ranch, right? Do you have the moon roof?

All that poop-brown colored leather weighs a lot!
