Yeah, I was thinking of more in your future travels. Look forward to hearing your reports after you pick up your 5.0!

Right now I'm starting to get a little nervous about the hitch - no manufacturer has come out with a hitch rail mounting kit for our new 2019 Ram yet....supposedly they are in the works but I've been hearing that for several months. I talked to Trademasters and asked if they would be able to do whatever it took to adapt a universal mounting bracket kit to get rails in our truck if a truck-specific kit isn't available by April, and they said they couldn't say for sure without seeing the truck. So in another month I'll have to start checking with local hitch installers to see about getting rails installed if rail mounting kits still aren't available. This, while we sit here imagining our 5.0TA sitting out on the ETI lot covered with snow....we will definitely be cracking open a bottle of champagne when we finally get to pick it up...and hitch it up!

Relax 5th wheel rail mounting is not a big deal. I went with a custom kit for two reasons: 1. it tends to be a cleaner and no drill installation and 2.for someone like me who was doing their own install it is more foolproof. My local camper shop puts them in all kinds of trucks and just uses the universal mounting kit...for them no big deal...they do it all the time and know what to expect. As long as you know where the rails are to be mounted(Reese can tell you this) it should be an easy job....again relax!

It totally depends on YOUR State. Our State, Oregon, but only if we are residents required us to get a temporary permit to travel with it before we registered with Oregon for our License plate. Some states will take all those wonderful records provided by Escape and actually give you a license plate before you even get up there. Of course it is unlikely that you will get stopped, but that is a bit beside the point. Oregon will not ticket you for not having a resident's temporary permit when you are not a resident. What does CA require? We decided we wanted to follow the law, so we got our temporary license for Oregon (that is only 10 days if I remember right). We drove from Canada down to Ontario Or to register our trailer with Oregon as we traveled for a long trip out of State. They did our registration, we wrote our check to OR, and they handed us a license for our trailer. (It wasn't that easy - it took an older guy who worked there to sort this out in the small office.) So your choice is to do what CA requires or to hope the paper work is enough - which I agree it probably is for almost all police. Funny twist -- in Oregon they are called vehicles!! Odd

Trailers are vehicles, even if that's not what everyone would expect:
Quote:
ve·hi·cle
/ˈvēək(ə)l,ˈvēˌhik(ə)l/
noun
1.
a thing used for transporting people or goods, especially on land, such as a car, truck, or cart.
They're just not motor vehicles, or self-propelled (so they're not "automobiles").

This can occasionally be important when reading regulations, because if you ignore anything referring to a "vehicle" you may miss requirements which do apply to trailers.

Interesting they call it a vehicle but yet prohibit you from transporting people inside or with it?

Although you can transport people in 5th wheel trailers, at least in California, if certain requirements (such as communications) are met.

Communications - Is that so the driver can call back and ask that the coffee be put on

True story, back in 1980 we rented a motorhome and perhaps we weren't quite as particular then about seatbelts but Beth did make coffee on the go, and lie in the back bed with our one year old!
