    So where and how often do these CARB inspectors show up? California doesn't even seem to have hardly any visible police, but do they have a lot of CARB inspectors or no?

    Well if you get the ones made for your trailer I'm quite certain the manufacturer has taken care of that.

    Mostly truck stops. Some rest areas. The DOT/CHP doesn't deal with that, so no worries there.

    he's about as wrong as he thinks he's tight....

    Just wait till CARB shows up when he's parked without the proper cal smog sticker on his truck.... big ### fine, in pound the truck and trailer... only way to get it back is to have it towed out of state.... CARB doesn't play around with emissions

    Can they fine you if the trailer is not moving? I mean maybe my skirts have been sent off for repair or painting or something, and I am at the truck stop waiting for them to be returned to me.

    My trailer is a 2003 Great Dane. Not sure if they make aerodynamics for retrofitting?

    That's when they pretty much get people. When they are stopped.

    They do. GD very common. Google their web site and put in carb. You'll find them.

    You are not saying that Nevada fleets driving in California need to do an emissions test and get a sticker, are you? Or are you referring to the EPA10 sticker? If so, do they really need that to be intact, don't they have some list that can tell them that 2011 Cascadia is EPA10 approved?
