How many people carry a firearm in their rv? Been telling the wife lots of people have a gun on board just in case a problem comes up and before people start going off I know as a last resort but sometimes people or animals leave you no choice.

I have them at my home, but never carry one in the RV. There are too many jurisdictions across the country where the mere possession of a sidearm could be a truly severe problem. At home I am aware of what noises exist, what is normal and what is not. In an RV everything changes every day. I feel that makes having a firearm more dangerous. The actual chances of using a firearm to prevent a serious crime or a serious animal attack is almost zero especially in unfamiliar surroundings. Not worth the risk to me.

About 2/3 of the states honor each other's conceal carry permits. Generally, it is those states that don't allow concealed carry that would present the problem. But this brings up an interesting question. If it is the RV is it a concealed status or is it just "in the house."

I would respectfully suggest that anyone who is going to have a handgun in the rig to get a CCP. There is a safety and training component if nothing else.

While camping in a tent, rv, pop-up, shed, or hotel room any area you may legally call your "home" the Supreme Court has determined a right to privacy under the 4th Amendment.

Its "in the house."
