CA Carb specifically exempts RV’s.  If your HDT is registered as an RV, you are exempt and will have no problem.  CA Carb also specifically exempts tow vehicles used solely to tow an RV, so if you are registered as a private truck you are also exempt while towing the 5er (or travel trailer).  The only possible hiccup is if you are registered as a private truck and use It bobtail as a daily driver.  There is no exemption for this.

im registered as a Private Truck out of South Dakota Towing my 40' Toyhauler, doubt i would be bobtailing as were moving to portland. have our other vehicle that the wife is driving.

 

Then you should have no problem.  I have a 2000 T2000 registered in CA as a motorhome and have never gotten a second look towing all over the state.  I’ve never gotten a second look running bobtail either, but I don’t do that as often.
