USPS Shipping rates and options

My site is selling small lightweight and inexpensive items, so I want to keep the shipping to a minimum for the customer. I will be shipping by USPS First Class mail which works for total weight at 13 oz. or less. The lookup quote is accurate for these small orders.

However, should someone order a large quantity and the total weigh goes over 13 oz. and I can no longer ship by First Class mail, but rather have to use Priority Mail rates. In which case the rate quote returned is no longer accurate.

Has anyone else run into this issue?

Can I create 2 shipping rules and get rate quotes:
1. total weight <= 13oz. then Get Quote for First Class Mail
2. total weight > 13oz. then Get Quote for Priority Mail

How would I do this in eCart 5?
