If they're not allowed in CA surely they'll pick up on this when you go to the DMV to licence the vehicle?

From my experience with my uncle the vehicle will have to be used in order to get in licensed in CA. My uncle bought a TDI Jetta here in AZ with the thought of driving it back to Santa Barbara. They would not register it for him in CA. He transferred it to my name and I registered it in AZ and then sold it back to him. He took it to CA as a used vehicle and they let him register it. I'm not sure if this still holds true or not. I would bet that someone on the Hotboat.com forum in the Sandbar will be able to answer this question for you. There are lots of people who go back and forth from CA to AZ around the Parker and Havasu areas that hang out on that forum, good luck! <BR> <BR>BTW, has anyone towed with one of those yet, or are they still brand new?

Once you try to license it in CA you'll be screwed they just wont allow it and you cant license it anywhere that you dont have a residence.

Did you check on the Sandbar in Hotboat.com? I know those guys are doing this stuff.

thanks everyone.. <BR> <BR>are you allowed to have dual residence ?

Yes you can have a dual residence. I have sold vehicles to customers whom live in both Washington and Alaska. They license it in Alaska to avoid sales tax here.

I would be afraid of the taxes that DMV will want if they DO yet it in. Does anybody know why Calif if against them???

I'm not sure about trucks, but the rule on cars that I have heard from a couple sources is 7500 miles before it can get registered in CA.
