I have a 15ft travel trailer I would like to get weighed.
Where in Kelowna can one get that done?

The scale by Vernon may do it for you. I would call first. In AB there are quite a few unmanned roadside pullout scales where one can do this...not sure on BC locations.

Isn't there scales on Edwards Rd. across Hwy from Adams Rd. in Kelowna?

If you are traveling you can weigh for no cost at any BC weigh scale.
If I agreed with you then we would both be wrong!

Did anyone ever find out where to weigh a travel trailer in Kelowna?
There are no BC HWY weigh stations in Kelowna.
Someone mentioned a scale on Edwards Rd out towards airport........is that true?
The Husky station? If so, does someone man it? What do they charge?
Is there room there to drop trailer to weigh truck separate first?
So many questions.............such a newbie.
HAHAHA

I'm not to sure if sunrype still has one or not but you could try there. I know they did have one but couldn't tell ya anymore. You could also ask the Glenmore land fill. If all else fails try ABC recycling by scanda they have one as well and are super nice there.

Just want to point out that you can't accurately weigh a trailer when it's attached to your tow vehicle.

You need to either disconnect it from the tow vehicle and weigh. Or weigh just your tow vehicle then weigh you tow vehicle and trailer together and do the math.

They will weigh it at the scales at the landfill, and give you a piece of paper with the weight (initialed) so you can take it to your insurer or whoever is requesting it.

The scale at Okanagan Wash Zone/ Husky / Western Star on Edwards road no longer has a scale. They removed it to make more room for parking.
