Technically, you can remove the propulsion system on a motorhome, it's just slightly on the difficult side. A tt or fifth wheel on the other hand simply has an easily detached propulsion system designed to facilitate easier maintenance and upgrades.

As to the op, I'm still not sure what solution or answer we're looking for here, but hang in there, add informational updates when appropriate, and eventually you may just find what you're looking for on the forum. Then again.....

MH vs RV

Imho I have a motorhome that I drive to find recreation. Mabe it should be like a marriage when the bride wants to retain her maiden name like RV-MH? or MH-RV?

Personally I don't care if its a MH, a TT, a FW, a TC, a Pop-up etc

None of that really matters if poster puts the BRAND/MODEL of component in their thread that they are having a problem with.

A 2012 Winnebago Meridian does tell me what Brand/Model their fridge/water heater/A-C Unit/furnace etc

Post that info and it won't matter what RV it is in

I must say that I agree with Rodger and the cola/Coke analogy. Many things can be called an RV, including motorhomes, but without a propulsion motor, any ol' RV can't also be a motorhome.

All in good fun...

"Gross Vehicle"... see WIKI for "Chevrolet Citation" followed closely by "AMC Pacer".

I think the OP needs to first check his Wikipedia badge at the door and have a bit of understanding, particularly when directing comments to persons new to the forum or who are posting from another country. They may communicate in what we consider English but that doesn't mean a term has the same meaning over there that it does here.

I can only wonder what the replies would have been if the UK poster had replied that he owned three caravans before finding the left hand drive RV.

Our current RV is a Porsche Boxster. Sadly we wii be selling it after we get the RV. Itís not suitable for being a toad.

The humping our crap in and out of motels for weeks on end finally made up our minds to take the plunge.

When did the Motorhome crowed decide that they own RV's and not motor homes?

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Motorhome with slide-out extended floors
"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.
Sorry - must/might just be me - but I RV in My Coach which is a MotorHome.

I like the term Camper Trailer. Travel Trailer doesnít fit well because Camper Trailers arenít the best Camper when Traveling. Motorized Travel Home is fitting for my mode of Recreational Vehicling.

I'm pretty old, but I don't remember ever seeing a trailer with a motor in it.
