Default CA Reg


Does anyone have current 2017 reliable info on legally converting our KW T2000 in CALIFORNIA :

I have read about losing the third axle and 5th wheel and airlines and possibly some*sort of deck. And getting the *VIN altered to reflect MH status. *BUT I also read these options are not valid anymore ?? My reg agent knows nothing.

I do have the CDL and not sure i want to reg in another state while we live here. Just want to be able to pull a nice toy hauler and keep my beloved KW. Been researching off and on for 19 months but can't seem to find the answer.*

*Is there a local converter and registration agent currently doing conversions ?
Thanks Tim

The best resource for people doing what you're talking about, that I have found, is over on the Escapees HDT forum: HDT - Escapees Discussion Forum

I bet you could find the answers there.

'03 Freightliner FL112, 295" wheel base, with '03 United Specialties 26' living quarters, single screw, Cat C12 430 h/p 1650 torque, Eaton 10speed , 3.42 rear axle ratio

1997 Ford CF8500 cabover == registered as RV, towing a
1980 Utility 40' OTR reefer == registered as RV.

We live near the outskirts of Eugene, Oregon.

We told the bureaucrats we are registering as RV, then we shut-up to allow their brains to fill the blanks.

If your bureaucrats refuse to play nice, take your business elsewhere.

"...nineteen months..."?
