California’s proposed Vehicle Code Changes in Bill No. 415

On February 20, 2019, California Senate Bill No. 415 was proposed by Senator Grove. This bill proposes amending Section 12804.9 of, and to add Section 501 to, the Vehicle Code.
“This bill would define the term “recreational trailer” as a vehicle that is designed to be towed by a motor vehicle and used for human habitation, to carry horses and other animals, to carry recreational equipment and off-highway vehicles, or some combination of these uses, for recreational purposes.

This bill would authorize a person with a class C license to, as specified, and not for compensation, tow a recreational trailer weighing no more than 10,000 pounds or, if the person has passed a written examination, a recreational trailer weighing more than 10,000 pounds but not exceeding 15,000 pounds.”
Please read the entire bill. If you agree with the proposed changes, we encourage you to call and write your California representatives as well as sharing this information with other California residents. This is a chance to support change in the current situation for non-commercial & recreational livestock and horse haulers.
