PastorCharlie is correct that, generally, whether or not an emissions test is required in NC for an annual inspection can vary from county to county.

However, statewide, motor homes over 10,000 lbs. GVW are exempt. So for me, for example, in my home county of Wake, my autos do require an emissions inspection but my motor home (32,000 lbs. GVW) does not.

Here's from the regulations:

Chapter 20 - Article 3A Article 3A. Safety and Emissions Inspection Program. Part 1. Safe Use of Streets and Highways. § 20-183.1

... 20-183.2.  Description of vehicles subject to safety or emissions inspection; definitions.

...(b)        Emissions. - A motor vehicle is subject to an emissions inspection in accordance with this Part if it meets all of the following requirements:

... (8)        It is not a privately owned, nonfleet motor home or house car, as defined in G.S. 20-4.01(27)k., that is built on a single chassis, has a gross vehicle weight of more than 10,000 pounds, and is designed primarily for recreational use.


Many (most?) motor homes do not, then, meet requirement #8 and are therefore exempt from the emissions inspection requirement.

Again, thanks for the replies and assistance!
