    Spread over a certain length is no longer an axle group.

    Late to the party and didn’t read thru all the posts, but if your trailer is over 48ft and you have a fixed spread axle then you can buy an annual overlength permit for Florida. I don’t know what it costs now but it only used to be $40 or so. But you can’t (at least you couldn’t when I got my last one in 2016) buy it at a scale. You have to buy it ahead of time and have it mailed to you.
