The only reason a coach would pull into a weigh station is if it was towing a trailer with a race car or a trailer used in conjunction with a business. I believe that still varies from state to state but have heard they are starting to enforce it in states like Colorado and some others. Some folks just chance it and keep rollin'. If you're a business they want the money! For the most part you don't have to worry about it.

Weigh stations are suppose to be for commercial vehicles only. So you can just drive on. I have however also heard of folks being pulled into a weigh station by a state cop to check their overall length. But I personally have never had a problem and believe it depends on the state as well as if you just happen to be right before a weigh station where a cop would pull you in instead of having you pull over on the interstate.
Here they all have a sign that says recreational vehicles exempt
