Question Motorhome + Toad Length Limit (California)

I was recently told California has a length limit with motorhomes and toads. One individual was not allowed to drive and was forced to put his motorhome on a flatbed. Sounds like a fish story.

Any towed equipment is limited to 1,000 lbs without a braking system in some states and 2,000 lbs in most other states.

It's true. Certain roads in CA are length limited. Actually, all roads are limited to 40', unless specifically exempted. Interstates have an automatic exemption. See 45' Motorhomes.

Not only is there a 40' max in California for single vehicles, but there is also a 65' max limit for combinations of vehicles, such as truck and trailer, or motorhome and toad.
