    Nevada, over 10k and under 26k you need a special permit. New Mexico- I couldnt find anything on them under 26,001 registered gvw or scaled weight. I'll have to check again. Thanks for the tip

    Quite a few states out west make you stop and buy a trip permit at the first open scalehouse.

    Off the top of my head Montana, Idaho, Washington, Oregon, Wyoming, Nevada, Arizona and New Mexico. California, Utah, Colorado I don’t think so. This is only if you don’t have an IRP registration and stay under 26k.

    NYS I’m not sure if you need a HUT if under 26k. Just try to avoid that state and everything east of it if you can lol.

    Wait so you're saying that without IRP, and staying under 26,001lb, you DO need some special permit from all those states you listed? I haven't found any resources about that. All I found was Nevada and New York requiring special permits under 26,001..

    Am I understanding your post correctly?

    Yeah, pretty sure that’s how it is. I was pulling campers with my 1-ton last summer from Indiana back to WA, under 26k obviously and no IRP but since it was commercial hauling I had
    to buy the permit in MT ($20), ID ($60) and WA ($25). Most states you just stop at the first open scalehouse and walk in and buy it but some states are a pain in the butt and make you do it online and print it out. (WA was one of them.) Company I hauled for reimbursed me for those expenses though.

    Wow okay. That was all registration, IRP, weight, trip permit realtor, not IFTA or fuel tax related right?

    Had nothing to do with IFTA as far as I know. My truck is registered for 26k max and had a WA base plate. It also depends on your base plate I think since some states have “reciprocity” and won’t make you buy a trip permit. It’s a patchwork of stuff you just have to figure out if you run that lane just like how it was in the old days before IRP registration got rid of most of that hassle for big trucks.

    I can get out my company handbook and take some photos of the states with trip permit requirements. I’ll post them later.

    Couldn't find the explanation page for NV and NM but that first one tells you all the states out west that require them.
