There is one in mine.
I bolted one down to the floor under the bottom wardrobe drawer.
SHHHHH don't tell anyone.

Remember, locks (and safes) are there to keep the honest people out, anyone dishonest is going to break in or steal it with or without a lock.

I expect the very top high end custom RVs would have some type of safe as an option or as standard equipment.
There are various types of safes. They all require and steal space currently used for storage. Toy Haulers have a garage that can accommodate large gun safes. Small box type safes for hand gun, wallet and money would fit in a drawer, cupboard or under a seat. Larger size that would fit inside a closet or cabinet, and a floor safe will require welding and fabrication.
Of the large box size safes you have fire resistant ones and plain solid steel. IMO the fire resistant safes reduce the inside dimensions too much and only offer fire protection from 1200F through 1850F from 30 minutes up to 2 hours. We all know RVs burn and spread very fast because of the materials they are made of. "Mac the Fire Guy" has said some home fires range in temperatures from 1,200-1,800 degrees, and an RV fire can reach temperatures of 2,300 degrees. Fatal RV fire prompts safety training - Havasu News: News
For this reason I feel a fire retardant safe is a waste of money as firemen routinely just control the flames of RV fires from spreading and allow them to burn out and down to the ground over a period of hours. Also it is not likely an RV that has caught fire is ever rebuilt like a stick house. It is always totaled.
If you choose to install a safe as I did, I recommend a solid steel one and measure ahead of time where you want to place it. Closet entries and cabinets are only so wide and space must be allowed to open the door of the safe.
