It's still a vehicle. Let us look at the Florida Statue (similar to most states):

Section 320.01(1) (b), Florida Statutes, define recreational vehicles as units primarily designed as temporary living quarters for recreational, camping or travel use having either its own motive power or mounted on or drawn by another vehicle. The basic entities are:

Travel Trailer: A vehicular portable unit, mounted on wheels, of such a size or weight as not to require special highway movement permits when drawn by a motorized vehicle. It is primarily designed and constructed to provide temporary living quarters for recreational, camping, or travel use. It has a body width of no more than 8 1/2 feet and an overall body length of no more than 40 feet when factory-equipped for the road.

Fifth-Wheel Trailer: A vehicular unit mounted on wheels, designed to provide temporary living quarters for recreational, camping or travel use, of such a size or weight as not to require a special highway movement permit. The gross trailer area shall not exceed 400 square feet in the setup mode, and it is designed to be towed by a motorized vehicle that contains a towing mechanism that is mounted above or forward of the tow vehicle's rear axle.

Camping Trailer: A vehicular portable unit mounted on wheels and constructed with collapsible partial side walls which fold for towing by another vehicle and unfold at the camp site to provide temporary living quarters for recreational, camping or travel use.

Truck Camper: A truck equipped with a portable unit designed to be loaded onto, or affixed to, the bed or chassis of the truck and constructed to provide temporary living quarters for recreational, camping, or travel use.
Motor Home: A vehicular unit which does not exceed the length, height and width limitations provided in s. 316.515, is a self-propelled motor vehicle, and is primarily designed to provide temporary living quarters for recreational, camping, or travel use.

Motor Home: A vehicular unit which does not exceed the length, height and width limitations provided in s. 316.515, is a self-propelled motor vehicle, and is primarily designed to provide temporary living quarters for recreational, camping, or travel use.

Private Motor Coach: A vehicular unit which does not exceed the length, width, and height limitations provided in s. 316.515(9), Florida Statutes, is built on a self-propelled bus type chassis having no fewer than three load-bearing axles, and is primarily designed to provide temporary living quarters for recreational, camping, or travel use.

Van Conversion: A vehicular unit which does not exceed the length and width limitations provided in s.316.515, is built on a self-propelled motor vehicle chassis, and is designed for recreation, camping and travel use.

Let us look at California. http://dmv.ca.gov/pubs/dl648/dl648.pdf This handbook clearly states Recreational Vehicles and Trailers. To sum up a key point here is a direct quote from the CA DMV book.
"This booklet is also a handy reference for people who currently drive a recreational vehicle (RV) or pull noncommercial recreational trailers, fifth wheel trailers including livestock trailers, and motorcycle trailers".

Perhaps it's one of those Tom-a-to Tom-aw-to type of deals. Here in CA it's a trailer, but in FL it's an RV. I prefer to call it what it looks like to me, which is a trailer.

You missed it both times. It's toe-may-ter (or just 'may-ter).
