Carrying alcohol in the RV

I have a question regarding carrying alcohol in the RV. Full -sealed beer cans. Open liquor bottles in the cupboard. Empty beer cans. I usually will get rid of any empty beer cans prior to traveling. However, there are cold ones in the frig. State to State what are the laws? - Has anyone had any problems with law enforcement on this? I'd appreciate any comments.
Thanks
Scott

I cannot imagine that would ever be a problem. At least it has never been a problem for us.

In 18 years of having a Class C to a Class A I have never had anyone even ask besides customs entering/leaving the USA to Canada. We have been stopped at safety check points, but nobody ever asked to enter the coach or if we were carrying alcohol.

Someone can correct me, but I have heard there is one county in Mississippi that is dry and the cops will stop RV's and levy a big fine if they find alcohol. Just what I heard. Other than that, no, don't believe there are any problems.

I don't think that as long as an open container(should say a container that has been opened) is inside a cabinet there would be any problem. In any vehicle, an open container laying next to you or in plain sight could be a problem in most states. However, one would have to comment some infraction to justify a LEO's need to access the interior of anyone's RV in the first place. Bob

Most States only are concerned if the open container is in the front of the coash, as in the driver or co-pilot seat. Someone can sit at the dinette and eat and drink while underway. Of course now we are in the seat belt problem.

today, on one of the forums, someone posted that Myrtle Beach State Park requires you to sign an affidavit that you have no ETOH on board. FWIW, & YMMV.

So your saying having my keg-o- rator between the front seats is a bad idea? Just kidding of course! We've never had a problem and the fridge keeps the beer cold, the cabinet keeps the Beam at room temp.

No.

The only problem you may encounter is if you get stopped by law enforcement and they find an opened can/bottle within reach of the driver.

I have lived in dry counties in NC. This how it is in NC, You can have possesion of alchol but you can not sell or buy alcohol in the county. Don't know about the MS laws, but most areas that are dry means you can't buy it there, it does not mean you can't posses it in the county unless in a state or county public area. Of course the DUI or DWI is always in effect also. I never had a problem carrying it in the RV anywhere as long as it is not in the drivers or front passengers area.

We have been to some State Parks and County fair grounds that had no alcohol policies. No one has ever asked if we had any except at Canadian border.

Your motor home is your home. It requires a search warrent to enter. Tell the officer to piss off w/o a warrent.

The dry county laws in Mississippi are in fact only related to the purchase and consumption. It is not illegal to have in your possession while traveling through the county. Been a Mississippi resident for over 50 years and have never heard of anyone being arressted for having alcohol in their possession while traveling through a designated dry area. Having said all of this some state wildlife management areas prohibit the possession and consumption of alcohol and some of these areas do have camping facilities.
