|Legal definition of RV||Bill||5-24-09|
I have a Nissan UD box truck (similar to a U-Haul, but in a cab-over design) which is rated for 22,000 lbs. It has a section in the front of the box converted into a sleeper.
A vehicle like this is expected to pull into weigh stations, and I'm supposed to maintain driver's logs, have a DOT physical, etc.
Can I declare my vehicle an RV and do away with all the federal trucking regulation BS? If so, what would be necessary? How exactly does the DOT/FCMSA/NHSA define an RV? WHat would I tell a highway patrolman who pulled me over for not stopping at a weigh station?
Thanks for any answers you can provide!

|I have a 2008 Pleasure-Way Excel - Class B Van that we use as a multi-vehicle and drive it weekly in not daily as our 2nd vehicle.|
Our Homeowners Association has decided that we are going to have to move it by Oct 1st. We have a meeting in two days with the Board of Directors to plead our case.
We have taken the position, up to this point that our vehicle is a mult-use van not your everyday run of the mill motor home. It is not stored at our home but just parked because we drive it very often. The Association says it is stored at our home.
Any suggestions that we can use to assist us in our presentation to the Board?
