Make sure you keep a mileage log showing dates, beginning odometer readings and ending odometer readings. Also definitely hang onto your oil change and inspection receipts which will show the miles you had at any given time.

For any other expenses, make sure you save the individual receipt. The IRS is getting fussy about taking credit card statements and they want to see the print outs from the pump or for any other expenses. That's a pain to save all those flimsy receipts, but it can save you money in the event of an audit.

Thank you so much. So if you are providing your lodging and meals via the RV, does that qualify? I spend about 28 nights per year in it strictly for business. That is separate from the nights spent on vacation.

Scotty, I would say it does. Remember though, that anything can be challenged by an auditor and the key is to have as much documentation as possible as to the business nature of your trip. I would be inclined to take the per diem because you are there for the convenience of your customer/client and your work requires you to be out of town overnight.
