They WILL throw the book at you in NJ.
The best part about New Jersey is that I left there 30 years ago. I remember thinking I'd take up hunting and going thru all the hoops required just to buy a shotgun. Required fingerprints, waiting periods, all sorts of nonsense. I'll bet Tony Soprano never bothered with that. Or even my former neighbor Richard Kuklinski aka "The Ice Man".

But I think you're right, you need to abide by the laws of the states you drive through. Especially when it concerns concealed weapons permits.

Taking a shotgun into Canada doesn't seem to me to be that big of deal. Fill out the non-res. form, secure the gun (trigger lock), secure the ammo separately, pay the $25.00 fee and, sign the form in front of a border guard with a approved id. Now how long does ths all take at the border crossing I could not find out. Any ideas, or experience from anyone? I still have to research my knives because some are not allowed even tho they are for hunting. I'm I being to naive?

If you are up to date on HR-218 you only need to be concerned about clip capacity in some states. Some of the eastern states will question your status. Western states like CA will be concerned about large clip capacity.

I have just one question. Has anybody ever been stopped, searched and charged with having a firearm in their RV? I have never even heard of it happening. I have been a cop over 25 years and I would like to believe other cops also have real crimes and real mutts (bad guys) to pursue. If you are driving a piece of crap death trap RV on a suspended license, no insurance, and have the smell of dope (including a mobile meth lab) coming out the windows, you may have a problem with your gun inside. But the everyday normal law abiding citizen RVer that is not committing a crime has very little to fear having a gun inside your RV...IMHO.

Not just RVs, but Maryland is widely known to pull people over with plates from more gun friendly states to do a search. I think it's Maryland , possibly Massachusetts .

Fire extinguisher, spare tire, gun . . . have never needed any of these tools but I wouldn't leave home without any of them.

When on the public highways, my arsenal is locked and empty. When off the highway, it's a different story. I find an empty gun is as useful as an empty fire extinguisher in fighting a fire.
