many do and it's a bad comparison.
the only thing the two have in common, are that they both sell things on wheels and have service depts.
other than that, they are worlds apart, especially in quality/fit-finish issues and service issues.
Just pull the access covers off and look inside the walls of an RV. Complete rat nest maze of wires, pex, pvc, ducting, sawdust, extra screws, etc. Wiring color codes are a joke. Hidden inline fuses, low quality wire crimps and splices, and sloppy cleanup after work is done. RVs have the worst manufacturing practices out of any industry I have been exposed to. However all those shortcuts are the reason that RV you live and play in is dirt cheap compared to anything built on a foundation.
