California, Oregon, Washington and GVWR > 10k (private use)

I live mostly in California and would really like to get the extra long wagon, but the GVWR is over 10k. The van would be for personal use.

I can't seem to figure out if, since it's not for commercial use, whether I will have a problem with my class C license. And whether I need anything else special like medical certification.

I regularly drive to Oregon and Washington since our house is near Portland (but on the WA side), so I've been trying to figure out what their rules are too.

My boss at work has a Sprinter conversion with GVWR > 10k and did not do anything special, but that doesn't mean he's doing it legit either

Yikes, this is confusing.

fitek,

Where is your legal residence, that will determine where you can legally register your vehicle. I realize that OR has very cheap registration compared to CA & WA, but if you aren't a legal residence you can be hit with massive fines for fraud. Each state has different requirements and legal weights, if it is legal where you live, you can drive it in the others. Doesn't look like OR would let you register it as a passenger veh.
