After many years of slave labor for a PO as a smelly, leaky garden shed my travel trailer is definitely looking forward to its retirement from that job. Retirement equals being a recreational vehicle.

I recall a post way back when stating that travel trailers were not allowed on the Hawaiian Islands (not sure if that's even true, but I can see where the Hawaiian authorities wouldn't want anyone to have an inexpensive way to vacation there and ruin their luxury tax base). But, they did allow mobile food vendor wagons. So the OP was going to try to ship his travel trailer to Hawaii disguised as a food wagon. I wonder what ever happened to that guy....

I do not like being placed in an RV site, with a gigantic class A on either side of my Big Casita 17'er. Most managers of RV sites know this and try to place the smaller TTers by themselves.

So, for practical purposes, are travel trailers RVs?

Mark
Bottom line: YES

RVtravel.com has a lot of info and Chuck, Gail and staff work hard to put out a fine publication. Great to see you subscribe to them. Most of their subscriber base is motorcoaches, but they do their best in accommodating 5th wheels and other RV types that have the same common concerns.

You seem to recognize the common camping lifestyle with your transient neighbors, regardless of what y'all are recreating in at a campground. That's good.

As far as seeking hard definitions: Have a Guinness (or two) and then then take in the simplicity: Trailers are not vehicles, but in American culture, travel trailers are RECREATIONAL and they have most of the same features/needs as those recreational things with motors.

Most campgrounds just want your money and would agree; place those with similar mentality together when they can. When you get placed in-between Class As, first look at the facility and what they market to, then look at the bigger psychological footprint.

It's all good, bro. Happy camping.

Another branch on the taxonomic tree

Good point,

My examples were certainly not complete as it would take many days to include all including those that are now extinct branches.

Given the simple example, Aluminum clad would be inserted under the travel trailer branch, this would include Airstream and similar.

"5th Wheels" should have a separate large branch early on as well as between motorhomes and TT.

OK, I will go Batty...

As an example here is the detail of a single species, Elegant Myotis (M. elegans) a small 3-gram bat common in the tropical forest understory.


Cheers,

Bat Dude

Short answer: yes

Long answer. Yes because TT are for recreation, and they are vehicles. While they do not transport people, they do transport cargo. If a wagon can be considered a vehicle then so can a TT.
