Could be. Or it could be a sudden inrush of power for charging and running a slide, tongue jack, etc.
If resetting it does the trick for a day or two chances are it was just a one time event.
I am having a similar problem on my house.
Circuit breakers that have given me no problems during cooler months tend to trip when I load up circuits in my kitchen with plug in electric appliances on hot days. The wall where my panel is installed is in direct sunlight and the panel gets extremely hot even when power draw is low.
Add a little more heat from an electrical load and "Pop", off the power goes.
