Weigh stations Sprinter was design at 9990#

So my Sprinters were built to be 9990#s so they could avoid weight stations.

The equivalent big Transit I would need is over the 10000 limit by a couple hundred pounds,
How do you deal with being over the limit in your transit?

Garage
In Florida, you just register it at 9999# no problem (assuming you don't intend to load it to the max)

Thats why I went with the non- HD (single rear wheel) 350 9500# GVWR. Although not a problem here in KY, I'd read horror stories with insurance and registration when exceeding 10k GVWR. Around here, people register their small and med duty trucks as 10k to get a lower tax rate. No one ever looks into these things. In IN, people use to register as 10k to avoid emissions testing, but they did away with testing a while back.
