I hope I am posting this in the correct place. If not, hopefully, someone will advise: We have received a letter from California Highway Patrol instructing us to get our Texas Licensed Toad registered in the state of California within 20-days. We have been full-time RVrs since 1995 and have licensed and insured our vehicles in the state of Texas. Is there anyone we can talk to at Escapees that can help us? Below is what has been provided as "some" of the criteria for determining CA residency and our status thereto.
