RMC riser to EMT before meter?

This is a new one to me, guys. I've got to move a riser to a new location. The utility and city have preapproved the new location, which will be 30 feet or so around the corner and down the side of the house before turning up and penetrating the roof.

Does the entire run need to be RMC/IMC? Or can I convert to EMT once I get below the roof and head sideways? This would make it easier to get around the corner and into the flush-mounted panel, and give me a wider variety of premade bends as well.

This is a 2" conduit run.

If the area has no walkway or driveway you can fasten the SE cable directly to the side of the house.

Otherwise sleeve it in pvc.

If you want to stay metal all the way you can IMO run EMT to near the mast and then change over to RMC for the mast. I see no reson to have to run RMC the whole way.

For physical protection using PVC you would need sch80. If you went this route you would need to bond the isolated section of RMC at the mast.

Finished it today. Ran EMT from panel and then converted to RMC riser at an LB. Looks good.
