Not to sound like a Jerk, but go to the IRS Site it lays it out plain as day.. If you can use this site you can use the IRS site. That way you don't get conflicting information

Also if you read the paragraphs above the main home section it clearly states the type of homes, trailers or similar property that have sleeping, cooking, and toilet facilities...

X2. Enough already about "tax professionals" highly overrated. This stuff is not rocket science. Look it up at IRS.gov, after all you paid for them to build the site so you can use it. Copy the pertinent pages for your own reference. Most people think doing your taxes is difficult, they make you believe you need them, because if they ever do simplify the code, think how many are out of work. They, collectively (tax attorneys, CPA's etc.) are the biggest lobby against reform. They even have their own lobbyists that fight simplification when that topic rears it's head, sad but true.
There are a few general rules that apply here, any questions on whats confusing after you read up on it, PM me, i'll point you in the right direction.

I am not a tax expert, but I believe the thinking is that "you have to live somewhere" so if you are not in your home, then you are in the rv. If not the rv, then you will be home.
This is the general idea.....hotels are another variable depending on reason for.

Well Mr ray ax, nope, I didn't read the sign. I was just joining a discussion, and yes, you do sound like a jerk.

Op.
If camper is a business expense, you should be able to set it up on depreciation, just like equipment. I believe you could use the interest as a business expense as well as the tag and taxes.
This is comming from a current and former business owner, but we have only used the camper for personal use, but deduct the interest like a home mortgage.

Good info!

Like stated before.... its not rocket science.

We use a cpa for our taxes. Its more than i want to do, since we have to do taxes for 2 businesses and he does our P&L's for us. Plus it is just too reasonable for what he charges, for me to worry about doing myself.

But the details about camper write offs is pretty straight forward.(or at least it seems that way to me)
