You might have to winterize your vehicle, get used to working with a portable sewer system and familiarize yourself with how a generator works.

Can RVs Owners Be Attacked?

Well, yes it is possible. However, it should also be noted that random violence is rare compared to violence that takes place within extended family or between ex-friends and acquaintances. It's also to note that sometimes violence can ensue when a thief is caught by a homeowner in act of burglary. Burglary is more prevalent than assault and RV windows and doors can be easily broken into. Preventive measures might include parking in a well-populated area with plenty of lights as well as installing some form of security alarm system. (With a posted warning) Boondocking, staying out in a remote rural location, might be cheaper, but more dangerous if plenty of others aren't around. As long as general precautions are followed, there's no need to worry obsessively over the thought of someone invading or vandalizing your home. However, having a cautious attitude about people and about keeping your home secure at night can only be a safeguard.

Can I Carry A Gun In An RV?

Hard to say; some states in the United States Of America allow guns to be kept in an RV, while others do not. Some might consider the RV a “home”, whereas other states might consider an RV a moving vehicle, thus the owner being guilty of carrying a concealed weapon. In most circumstances, transporting a firearm would require removing the bullets from the gun and storing them apart from each other. On the other hand, Mexico and Canada do not allow firearms aboard an RV entering the country at any time. Be sure and know the laws in each state you travel in before loading up that Magnum.
