Over weight isn't just a source of revenue for lawyers. Calif has been weighing RV's for years.

2012 Copper Canyon 273FWRET being towed by a 1994 Ford F350 CC,LB,Dually diesel.
Airlift 5000 bags, Prodigy brake control, 5 gauges on the pillar.Used to tow a '97 Jayco 323RKS.

Now an RVIA registered tech. Retired from Law enforcement in 2008 after 25+ yrs.

This is a quote from a NHTSA interpretation.

"Industry standards generally form the basis for demonstrating product safety and quality before courts, regulators, retailers, consumers and others."

GVWR is an industry standard.

Here is a link to NHTSA files. You can hunt for a quote or ask for an answer.

Adding my story. Had a 2009 Ram 3500 HD SRW crew cab long bed pulling a 35.5' Outback 310TB. Was in the good with GVWR (except moving from Alaska to NJ, accepted the risk).
Fast forward a few years, went to upgrade TT to Raptor 352TS toyhauler and dealer wouldn't sell to us b/c dry weight exceeding towing capacity. If my truck had 4.10s I would've been good for the 352TS but I had 3.73s. So good on the dealer b/c it "forced" us to upgrade.
Now we have a 2012 Ram 3500 HD Megacab DRW pulling the Raptor 352TS. Oh, if you are wanting to know of the dealer, it is Sirpilla Camping World of Akron, Ohio. Name drop me for the hookup.
