Question ID: 573578
I live in and travel in a large motor home and have no other residence. the RV is currently registered in Vermont. 1. If I am stopped by a police officer do I have a valid claim that this is my residence and not my vehicle? ie: open container in the back of the rv, No you may not search the rv etc. 2. How do I comply with different states laws ie: It is illegal to have a police scanner in a motor vehicle in New York State, It is illegal to have a radar detector in several states, some states have different weight rules or driver license rules, inspection rules etc. 3 My handguns are kept in a locked safe. in states banning handguns is that good enough?

As for RV vs Home for police, if you are on public streets then its RV/Car and subject to those laws in regard to search and seizure, stopping for motor vehicle infractions and so on, maybe if you are parked, but this is not legal advice you should check with a lawyer, also I beleive as to your guns, the states are allowed to set their own laws as to who may possess and carry, so in certain states you may be inviolation of state handgun laws and subject to such criminal action, Basically what ever state you are in you are subject to there laws, esp. in regard to guns, the northeast states take a very strict view on who may carry or possess and even if you have obtained them legally in say NC you may not be allowed to possess in CT even if you are traveling threw and do not plan on stopping say stop for motor vehicle, they ask if you have guns, you say yes, then you may be in trouble On the public roads your are subject to motor vehicle standard for search and seizure
