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.

Safe travels

Vehicle compliance vs safety compliance. Example emission vs. motorcycle helmets.
My 7.3L Diesel probably would not meet California emissions but I doubt they will ticket me for it out of state. Now on a the Helmet Law You don't need one in IA 2 miles from my S&B but once you cross the river you better be wearing one no matter where you are from.

Same with the move over laws. There are some states that you had better move over if it is safe and legal to do so regardless if your home state has that law or not.
My old boss found that out the hard way.

As for length of tow vehicle. I was in Law Enforcement in SD and of the patrolman I knew there had more important things to do than see what your bumper to bumper length was. That is of course unless you get into a wreck. Few years ago they increased the length any way. I think now it is 75'. But again they allow Pickup, 5th wheel, and boat behind the 5r. as long as you stay in the 75' which is quite a bit.

I highly recommend if any one does a triple they use a anti sway bar at least on the last unit.
I seen boat come around and say hello to a guys 5th wheel.
Needless to say scared the heck out of us coming from the other direction.
