Great idea. I love my booze stash in my camper, it's great when you run out of booze in your house and you remember you have a full bottle of "Jack " in the camper!

First thing I do when opening the bottle, is throw the cap away, as I won't be needing that anymore....!

Question: Is it legal to carry booze in your trailer? It is treated the same as carrying it in your vehicle?

Good question - not sure about the trailer,but I think in most (Texas) you can carry booze in your vehicle legally as long as the container (s) are unopened.

How else could you get it home from the store if you couldn't?

Sounds like Sargent shouldn't need any small bottles to stay legal. He'd have to drink it ALL in the campground!

I would be concerned about the flavor from the original food transferring to the liquor. We use the tall cabinet to the right of the Hoosier cabinet for the liquor. The Bailey's is next to the coffee pot, in the Hoosier cabinet.

Sounds like booze in a mh is therefore illegal?

Would that be a problem if glass containers were thoroughly washed and clean before the liquor was poured into them?

I didn't say that - probably best to check with each state. But a mh does present a different situation.

Be interesting to get some answers.

Last I heard was that glass did not retain or add odors when cleaned.

I should have worded it "previously opened" booze in a mh might be a problem.

Me too. That's why I said what I said. Shouldn't be a problem.

These are some interesting questions. Every state is going to have different laws concerning this, but here is the statute in Virginia:

§ 18.2-323.1. Drinking while operating a motor vehicle; possession of open container while operating a motor vehicle and presumption; penalty.

A. It shall be unlawful for any person to consume an alcoholic beverage while driving a motor vehicle upon a public highway of this Commonwealth.

B. A rebuttable presumption that the driver has consumed an alcoholic beverage in violation of this section shall be created if (i) an open container is located within the passenger area of the motor vehicle, (ii) the alcoholic beverage in the open container has been at least partially removed and (iii) the appearance, conduct, odor of alcohol, speech or other physical characteristic of the driver of the motor vehicle may be reasonably associated with the consumption of an alcoholic beverage.

For the purposes of this section:

"Open container" means any vessel containing an alcoholic beverage, except the originally sealed manufacturer's container.

"Passenger area" means the area designed to seat the driver of any motor vehicle, any area within the reach of the driver, including an unlocked glove compartment, and the area designed to seat passengers. This term shall not include the trunk of any passenger vehicle, the area behind the last upright seat of a passenger van, station wagon, hatchback, sport utility vehicle or any similar vehicle, the living quarters of a motor home, or the passenger area of a motor vehicle designed, maintained or used primarily for the transportation of persons for compensation, including a bus, taxi, or limousine, while engaged in the transportation of such persons.

C. A violation of this section is punishable as a Class 4 misdemeanor.


So motor home owners have no worry in Virginia, unless it is in the in the cockpit area.

I don't have a drinking proble. I drink, I get drunk, and fall asleep. No problem.

Seriously though. Not! It's time for an intervention. Four pages of responses on the topic of booze.

Pennsylvania

Open Container: It is against the law in Pennsylvania
for drivers or their passengers to consume alcohol or
possess an open container of alcohol on Pennsylvania
roads.
This law does not apply to passengers in a
commercial transport vehicle, such as a bus, taxi,
limousine, or to those riding in the living quarters of a
house coach or trailer.

I would tend to agree that the language you bolded allows the carriage of open containers of booze in MH,at least in VA.
