State Towing Laws for RVs
The use of the term RECIPROCITY is not a hard and fast rule as said above and varies state to state...like:
CA has NO reciprocity with any state that does not require carrying current proof of insurance.
BUT, CA does honor reciprocity for all legal vehicle equipment on out of state motor vehicles (even when the equipment might not be CA legal) i.e. dark aftermarket Window-Tint is common on AZ cars, but on CA licensed vehicles ANY aftermarket tinting is totally forbidden on windows forward of the drivers seat.
Bring your AZ licensed car/RV with dark window tint to CA and there's no issue.
The trick is that the vehicle does have to be legal in your home state.
