For us UHaul owners, this settles it.

So under that premise you folks with single axles are 2 wheeled trailers until you are attached to the tug at which time you'd become a "3 wheeler" .

Oh god, I think I'm having an identity crises!

Maybe you and Jared (and all the other 5th wheel owners) need a site of your own where you can dwell in your mistaken identity.

Scamp 19' is not a 5th wheel, it is also not a goose neck, or a pull trailer!

According to Wikipedia RV may also stand for Random Variable ... due to the number of different thoughts on what an RV is or is not here that definition certainly seems to fit

Tom, is the embossing on that logbook the work of U-Haul? If so, would give historical support to "RV" as an inclusive rather than exclusive pigeonhole. As some of us have been forced to notice, RV as permanently embedded in our esteemed Forum name (FGRV) is quite acceptable and not confusing in the least to the self-propellers who wash up on our shores occasionally LOL.

Yep, that is the original log book from my UHaul CT. It contained the UHaul user's manual that I posted in the archives. Also my UHaul has an RecVee World blue decal on the side, if that counts for anything.

Jared... not it isn't all good... our Scamp 19' rigs are NOT 5th wheels. They are CLOSER to a goose neck.

The California DMV (for whatever value THAT brings) includes, under the general category of Vehicles "trailer coach".
