Is Your RV Entering California? Get Ready to be Searched!

• by Mike Wendland

A recent post in our RV Lifestyle Facebook group asked about RV searches at the Californian border.

Kari, a top contributor, posted (with minor edits): "Hi all. Question regarding the fruits going across the state line between CA and OR.  We have a 5th wheel. I know they ask if you have fruit when you cross the border. How often do they actually physically do a check of the RV?"

With nearly 100 comments, fellow RVers shared their experiences and what to expect. We thought we'd share and add to their input, explaining why these searches occur and why they are so vitally important to the survival of California's agricultural economy.
