Not so sure the electrics are in my RVing future. Not enough range. Failing DPFs arent a convenience. Many of us wouldn't have a problem skipping camping in California.

Sounds like it isn't happening anyway.

I am not environmental freak, but on practical site the truck is already forbidden from driving in California.
About 8 states already follow CA smog laws and the number keeps growing.
When they will follow with same restrictions?
Right now I own 3 vehicles with DPF and DEF. It is additional maintenance issues (with potential for high expenses) but similar my android cost way more than old dial-phone.
Would I drop convenience of android for scanning the cars, operating light systems in my house and checking gate camera only to gain more reliability?
Heck no.


Are there states that will not allow me to drive my truck into because it is a pre emission truck what gives there it adheres to all the emissions the were out the year the truck was new are they telling you that you have to buy a new truck?????

Just wondering how many of us would love a pickup version.. Basically, it’s a new shell with remanufactured engine/transmission/axles. You get the benefit of creature comforts/electronics without the same emission requirements/equipment.

That was a good video. The trucker is remarkably clear, using understandable language, with his descriptions of his truck and how things work - along with some humorous comments!

I think all RV are exempt from those laws, but lot of TC owners have commercial registration on their truck and that is where things get tricky.

I would sooner have an old school Big Horn class 8 (only about 250 were built) from the mid seventies re-powered by a new Cummins.
