As to leaving the state be legal or don't. Tickets will have to eventually cause your insurance to go up. Repeat offenses may lead to increased fines.
Another reason I stay under the 10,001 lb limit for my truck and trailer.
What does your rig consist of to stay under 10,000? From what I am looking at a chevy 1/2 ton and single axle trailer would be over 10,000 pound limit. We have thought about trying to down size our truck to avoid it all together but everything we look at would still put us above the limit with our little 6X14 unless we got a V6 powered 1/2 ton chevy.
