any recommendations on visiting california with exhaust modifications? im
pulling my 5th wheel down to disney land soon and want to know if i can
expect a hassle due to my exhaust modifications. fwiw, montana has no
vehicle inspections therefore we can pretty much do what we want up here. i
just dont want trouble when i roll into california.

I was under the impression (perhaps false impression) that if the
vehicle is registered and is current in the state of primary residence
that all other states had to allow passage. Especially since many of
the roads are actually funded by the federal government.
Texas' restrictions are fairly mild. I've been to Cali before in my
vehicles with no problem. I know you can't purchase any of the vehicles
I own in Cali without special equipment, yet they allowed me to stay
there for a few months. Why would the exhaust mods be any different?
(Unless they were breaking some other ordinance, like noise). Further,
how do 18-wheelers handle coming and going freely in and out of Cali?
Lord knows, many of those rigs are modified.
As I said, a noisy exhaust will draw attention and he would probably be
harassed due to that and cited for noise infractions. If it was still
reasonably quiet, I doubt that they would do anything or even bother to look
since the vehicle is an out of state vehicle.
If at first you don't succeed, you're not cut out for skydiving
