Yes, MH's do get pulled over. Just let my wife drive through a red light with a local motorcycle cop waiting at the side street. OOPS! Sorry for throwing you under the bus, Baby!
And if a 400lb fiberglass sheathed crotch rocket can trip a radar gun, so can a MH.

I use an advanced radar unit that will give an accurate reading off a bicycle rider at some distance. The modern radar guns are "instant" on, so a detector can't see them until we get a speed measurement. So that I can say in court that I was measuring the vehicle that I claim, I generally will target vehicles in the lead of a group or with enough separation between them that I am assured of an accurate measurement.

The unit we are issued is battery powered so we can use it away from the vehicle and then radio a partner vehicle to make the stop. I don't even bother stopping a vehicle to make contact (check ID, insurance, warrants) unless the vehicle is 15+ mph over posted. In Arizona 20+ mph over posted is criminal, so I focus on these.

It is all about training. But training seems to take the back burner in many jurisdictions. The intent was not to take policing powers away, but to make better police officers.

And the constitution, well if you are within a hundred miles of any international border, it does not apply anymore.

And the best policy out there is "yes sir" or "no sir", and respect!

Of course, they are going to be pulled over just like any other vehicle on the trafficway that commits any violation. Also depends on how the cop feels that day. Some cops like to write tickets and write as many as they see. Others might need a real serious violation to get out of the car.
We in motorhomes are like everyone else on the road.
