Over the road/ long haul guys. Arizona question.

I know this sounds crazy, but a guy who frequently drives coast to coast warned me that I must pay for a permit to drive my 3500 pickup with a slide in camper thru the state of Arizona.

I did a google search but came up empty. He said That I must either get "apportioned" plates or apply and pay for a permit in order to pass thru that state.

I said I had never heard of anything so crazy, and how can a state in the USA restrict U.S. citizens from driving there, but he assured me that Arizona State police will pull me over and issue a $500 citation if I don't have the necessary permit to drive in their state.

I have a big cross country trip coming up which includes Arizona. Can anybody confirm or deny this?

Thanks

Like you, I've never heard of such a thing for a non-commercial vehicle. I did find this but again, commercial.

Some states require a truck camper be registered.

Only commercial needs the permit.

BS.

There are laws about commercial vehicles on roadways.

When I visit family on Long Island they always think I’m crazy for driving on some of their roads, most 2500 and up vehicles up there are considered commercial. Police aren’t gonna waste their time on out of state folks.

I'm from New York state, and unfortunately, in NY all pickup trucks are assigned Commercial plates.

Are you familiar with this permit? Any Idea how to apply for it and its cost?

born and raised there, some messed up rules. I remember guys doing all sorts of things to get around them. Cargo vans would add bubble windows in the back so they could go on the parkways.
Haven't been back there in a long time, do not miss it at all.

You buy it at the port of entry when you cross into the state. IIRC, they don't cost much, like maybe $20, but I haven't been out that way in years.

Tell your friend to get with the time. Anything RV is exempt unless one is transporting them commercial.

Even IF that were the case, AZ does not have any where near enough LEOís to enforce it in the winter........Quartzsite alone gets like a million snowbirds there. There are also a lot of people that are permanent residents that still have their vehicles registered in some other state!
Enjoy your trip and donít worry about this BS

6000 lbs or less can apply for passenger plates, but by default, all are initially issued commercial.

Still, it only restricts the parkways for us.
