As you can clearly read, it does not mention or include MotorHomes or RV Vehicles.

Now, if you want to drive a bus, truck, tractor trailer combination and you reside in California, you better have a CDL

an interesting catch cboh1

and as a responder to you stated, although "it does not mention or include MotorHomes or RV Vehicles"
the full code DOES however mention that it is for
"..this division refer exclusively to the size and weight of, and loads upon, vehicles when operated upon the highways. ..." (all vehicles except emergency vehicles), thereby implying it IS for Motorhomes and RVs.
I can't imagine that 2" is against the INTENT of that code, but it is still an interesting point.

related:
someone else here found in the CA DMV code the licensing requirements for trailer weights up to 15,000 pounds. it is written a bit confusing. After reading it a handful of times, i feel a Class C license is good for a 5er up to 15000 and does NOT require a special endorsement or a non-commercial A license.

It also may be a revenue generator for some small communities.

FatDog,
Your interpretation in regards to special RV endorsement for a class c California drivers license is incorrect. If the trailer weight is greater than 10,000 lbs but less than 15,000 lbs, a RV Trailer endorsement is required for a class c license. If the weight of the trailer is over 15,000 lbs, then a class a non-commercial license is required.

As for the post regarding pneumatic tires, I dont think that you should have anything to worry about. I doubt if anyone would ever check to see how wide an RV is.

baddwalk, i think we just had this conversation a month or two ago, and i'm wondering if maybe i may have glossed over the results of our conversation. At any rate, i am going to DMV on Thursday regarding this and will question/converse/apply with them on this until i am A-OK.
there just might be one more letter on my license this week

FD:

I'm afraid baddwalks'd correct...we checked on this years ago, and anything over 15klb you need an endorsement...but as I've stated in another thread, I'm not quite sure there's anyone who would know that's the fact. When in doubt, my best friend has a great rule- don't break two laws at the same time!

<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content">My Adventurer is 104" wide. That means a Wide Load Sign. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

Is it really - The Winnebago site lists the 2004 and 2005 Adventurer as 8'6'' wide or 102". The 2001, 2002 and 2003 are listed as 8'5.5" wide or 101.5".

Maybe older units are wider I just don't know
