Assuming you have a loan on your RV and it has a bathroom, kitchen, and stove in it...you can deduct the interest you pay on it from your gross taxable income...just like a house...

My accountant said I could if I used it more for business then for personal use (this refers to a business deduction). There might have been a percentage tied to that, I'm sure others have more knowledge. As far as a second home I think it may qualify as well but this deduction is on the bubble, second homes may disappear as a deduction in the future.

weather shelter

This winter heavy snow forecast, so drove RV to work day before and lived in parking lot at our airport for 3 days. I knew it would not be safe to drive 45 minutes each way.

This is the best topic I have ever read here, I loved all of the responses. I can't imagine life without our MH. We have so much fun and already have a ton of great memories traveling around with Family and Friends. It was also a safe place for us after SANDY wiped out a good part of our town Union Beach, NJ. I hope we stay healthy for a very long time as we love traveling around in our RV

We used our Discovery as a shelter for my parents after Hurricane Charley damaged their house, I lived in her and used her as an office when I went to work in Mississippi just after Hurricane Katrina, and we lived in our Discovery on our property while our home was being built and lastly as a huge bonfire when she caught fire and was reduced to a pile of charred debris.

Just used ours while I had the interior of the house painted. Then when we had the carpet replaced. I agree with many of the other uses that have been posted. Hell I run a campground and sometimes I park it by the river and just chill.

Day trips:

Christmas Tree
Pumpkin Patch
River Rafting
Snowboarding
Mountain Biking
Amusement Parks
Racing Events
Tailgating (then you have a tv to watch the pregame on)

The usual camping trips and we use it for a guest house for my in laws. Great thing is, depending on how well we're getting along depends on how far I park it from the house.

Tow vehicle for race car trailer and motel room while at the races. I have had motorhomes since 2007 and until recently I had never stayed at a campground or used the plugin cord.

Years ago, we had a Class C, took a bunch of people to a park by St Pete Bay, made boat drinks and had a BBQ - then went to a Jimmy Buffett concert with everyone. Designated driver didn't have as much fun as everyone else - but it was a blast!
