Might make more sense to just buy it here. For the few bucks I would save, I'd spend that much making a box to put it in.
I have a dump truck I can go local with here, or access to a dump trailer to go out east. I might just have to make a seperate trip. Only 4 hours or so.
You have to be careful about how you 'secure the package'. The Scales guys aren't just looking at brakes, lights, med card or weight. If it is not secure, you had better bring a cooler..... with sandwiches, water and some TP, you're probably not gonna find a friend in PA that day
I know what you mean! Never had trouble, but heard quite a few stories. My truck/trailer is registered at 22K. So as long as I get it spread out right, I can get 10K on the deck legally. Registration is $405 a year, but one overweight fine is a couple thousand!
I'd have to have a pretty good box made to get it strapped down good. I was thinking I could toss baggs in the bed or on the deck, they would be much easier to strap down.
