In Misery [Missouri] you can put car tags on an SUV and do pretty much anything - with any weight on a trailer.  You can put truck tags on an SUV but then you can't go over license rating or the GVW rating of the vehicle and DOT can harrass you any way they see fit.

Willie, The guy that works over by Andrews will nail your butt to the wall. a few years ago I had him stop me and it cost $630.00 for being over weight. I had my truck tagged in IN. at the time and was pulling Dad's big trailer, Tagged in GA.. In Indiana, both the truck and trailer tags carry weight, in GA. only the truck tag has the weight. So my truck, 13,000lbs didn't cover the 25,990 load. The bad thing is that guy waited for 3 days to get me.

He was also busting guys cutting wood and hauling it in 1/2 P-ups. They would maybe get at that time $75.00 for a load and their tickets were $120.00. It's a wonder the DOT man is still alive..

They cannot ticket the Suburban unless the law is changed. I got pulled over one night with a big load because we had busted out the trailer tail lights loading it. He asked how heavy I was and I told him "very". He just laughed and then didn't give me a ticket for anything. 

 

They can ticket pickup truck because they are property hauling vehicle. The Suburban is a passenger vehicle. It falls through an odd loophole.

Consider yourself lucky. My ex brother in law took his 3/4 ton pickup with a trailer on back that had regular tags on it (No one said he was real smart) to get a bobcat. When he loaded it up he saw a DOT officer sitting across the road but didn't think anything about it.  As soon as he pulled out of the parking lot he got pulled over and got a huge fine.
