Don't forget about licensing. In California it requires an upgraded driver's license. Some of those include medical exams and higher fines if you get a traffic ticket.

With all due respect!... It does apply to equipment restrictions!... I wouldn't say this on my own though! I asked my neighbor, ( a retired CHP and his Sheriff wife) who are also RV'ers and in agreement!

That only applies to interstate highways. State highways and roads rules apply to everyone.

Rules of the Road

Some rules of the road for towing lengths and requirements and -- most important -- phone numbers to call to verify. Some states allow you to tow doubles, but the first hitch has to be a fifth wheel. Some don't allow you to tow double at all.

here's some creapy queep:: California, if you thought it could not get more stoopid, deems a motorcycle pulling a trailer as the same vehicle as an 80,000 pound double tanker. No left lane, 55 mph on the freeway. It's a motorcycle. Will God just let it fall off into the ocean -- PULEEZE!

As a life long motorcycle rider, I fully support the states trailer towing rules - and California's laws allowing motorcycles to split lanes too.

There is no reason for a vehicle (of any type) with a trailer to be sitting in the left lane...statewide max speed limit for towing is 55MPH. But reality is this is not obeyed and rarely enforced.

Towing doubles is not so clear for being good or bad. But it is legal in CA (with proper license). Anyone that has ever followed an Ag or Fuel truck pulling 2 trailers will see that it is not the safest thing on the road.

And finally, California is not going anywhere. It was 73 and clear today...just beautiful. How was the weather there, today? Hope everyone in the frozen parts of the US can load-up their RV and come west soon to thaw out

Safe travels

Ca trailer speed limits make no sense at all. My 40,000 pound motorhome can drive the higher speed limit unless it has a trailer on the back, even my 700 pound flatbed, then it's 55. I agree, statistically everybody ignores these speed limits, and the one guys who drives 55 is a hazard.
The wx here in Utah -- cold and a bit overcast, perfect day for the Olympic downhill. Yeah, but I'd rather be in San Diego or Key West.
