FW: Governor Kulongoski referral: Case #70230
And this from a state that has gigantic logging trucks careening down the highways and by-ways.

Dear Mr. Scott: Governor Kulongoski has asked me to respond to your e-mail concerning the length restriction on motor homes in Oregon.
It is unfortunate that the vehicle you recently purchased exceeds the length requirement for our state. We can appreciate your frustration at not being able to drive your vehicle in Oregon. In addition, Oregon state statute does not provide for special permits to be issued for motor homes exceeding the legal length of 45 feet. Although you may disagree with these limitations we support our legislatures' decision to limit the length of recreational vehicle on our highways.
We are certainly glad you did you your research on Oregon before your planned trip and have avoided a possible traffic citation.
Please be assured, it is not our intention to create problems for tourists in our beautiful state and we hope you find an opportunity to visit us sometime.
