My dually has commercial registration and normally with it I can park in commercial zones.
I know that you can also register station wagon as commercial and enjoy the same privileges.
Today , with my camper I had hard time to find parking spot long enough and was tempted to stop at designated commercial zone.
I know cops can leave a ticket applying or not, but what do I risk?

Commercial Zone? You mean the truck parking at a rest area? I do that all the time. Easier in and out.

Are you trying to camp in a downtown commercial zone? That isn't what commercial zones are for. Sounds like an attempt to scam the system.

For commerce not camping. Deliveries, pick up etc. A scam for free camping.

In California at least, a slide in camper is defined as a load, and a pickup with a slide in camper is defined as a pickup with a load of cargo. There is no reason you could not park a pickup (which in California must be registered as a commercial vehicle) in a commercial zone.

Someone should send a dictionary to the California lawmakers.
