FatDog- Thanks for the info- I've known about this for over 3 years, but like baddwalk, I think you'd be pretty pressed to find a cop that knew about it, or even cared (you'd be really lucky if he/she had a 15k coach without the required endorsement!). Also, for all that I see in my 40 mile commute to work, there aren't enough of them out there to catch everyone they should. Must be a budget thing.

CyberVet- I couldn't echo your thoughts on Utah enough- we have found "heaven", and it's only a few miles from Cedar City...Highway 12, just 30 miles south of Torrey...if you've got a Jeep, and good lungs, this place is for you! So Cal is for the birds (darn- my job's still here- gotta work on that, but only two years to retirement @ 50yo!).

WWFan, I hope you have your land in place. This area is like a boom town! The land prices have doubled in the three years that I have been here. Torrey is over by Bryce, I think. My daughter lives in Escalante.
Baddwalk, get your California butt out here and buy a piece of dirt! You can always build on it later.
There is so much BLM land and N.P. land out here. Just pull off the road about 50 feet and stay a month. And count the ten cars that go by your spot in that month!

I am serriously planning on looking into it. I guess I should try and get a land guide or do an internet search. I will start doing the research and see what things look like.

Good idea! I guess I better look into that (I wonder if the BLM has a "Land For Sale" site!).

You're close on Torrey...Highway 12 ends at it (at Hwy 24). Escalante is about 35 miles south of our "Heaven" on 12. We're set for 3rd week in June trip, but with the new trailer, we're gonna come in on the North side- the Escalantes are murder on ANY vehicle.

Back to the thread, does Utah have an endorsement requirement?

"the Escalantes are murder on ANY vehicle."

Escalante means ladder or stair in Spanish. Oly1

Disturbs me the "when towing is not for compensation", looks like CA is setting up to tax haulers delivering RV's. Not much of a concern though, with rediculous speed laws, expensive fuel, and cheap freight many are opting not to run CA anymore.
