From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"RV" redirects here. For research vessels, see R/V. For other uses, see RV (disambiguation).

A recreational vehicle (RV) is a motor vehicle or trailer which includes living quarters designed for temporary accommodation.[1][2] Types of RVs include motorhomes, campervans, caravans (also known as travel trailers and camper trailers), fifth-wheel trailers, popup campers and truck campers.

When shown this picture, how many people do you think would ever describe this as a "vehicle"?

Yes, another MH since it seems to make a difference to you.
Retired recovering from a back injury. Not that it's any of your business how many time I post.

Too bad that most of the Motorhome crowed can't understand this post or read it properly for that matter. About 4 have gotten it correct.

Common process

I too struggled to find the right thing for us to FT in. We purchased 2 5er's and loved them. So comfortable & homey. However on a trip to a larger city, we found parking, our large F350 Diesel Dully, to ba a problem. Talked about what it would be like as we ventured out to BIG cities. Decided we were willing to sacrifice a little comfort for the ability to have a towed, generator & more basement. When we begin our venture next year I am confident we made the right decision for US.... note the key is US and this is a very individual process.

all thumbs are fingers, but not all fingers are thumbs.

Heck I thought my Polaris Ranger was an RV. I guess if I'm using it to work around the house it's a WV? Thought it was also a UTV and a SxS. Oh well guess I'll just give it a name like Betty, then I won't be confused. Plus I won't have to change names if I start playing while I'm working.

I use both terms. However, since we are living and traveling full time in our Class A. I should stick to the Motor Home (MH) term. And use the Recreational Vehical for those are using their Class A, Class B, Class C, 5th wheel, travel trailer of just recreational use. But that leaves me at a delima for those who are living full time in their unit and remaining either stationary or semi-stationary (6mo here, 6mo there). Maybe Stationary Mobile Home (MSH) or Non-Mobile Home (NMH).

Its good to know all other questions have been asked and answered and we are down to this. Reminds me of the poem “First they came for” I think we need to agree to disagree A2D

A 5th wheel, trailer, or motorhome can make a very big difference in the answer.

I started this because a poster said he had 3 motorhomes in the past but this was his first RV. I had no idea what the hell he was talking about.
Agreed that is not a good way to ask for help with something. To me, the options are:
1. ask for clarification
2. ignore the post and let someone else deal with it

There! I settled it!
I don't consider something to be a "vehicle" if it has to be moved by another "vehicle".
