It may be against the law but it is rarely if ever enforced. I wish it was as I have seen countless times when semi-trailers, snow machine trailers and RVs are grossly overweight from buildup.
Depending on how wet the snow is, it can weigh 25-35 lbs per sq. ft. Now imagine a 20'x8' snow machine trailer with a foot of snow on it. That, on the low side equates to an extra, likely not factored in, 4000 lbs of weight.
