Has anyone had experience with deducting actual expenses for business use of an RV? As it tends to be more expensive than auto travel, I am wondering if there are any restrictions. I would say the RV was purchased for pleasure rather than business, but the business use, at least this year, outweights the personal. Would these expenses be "extravigent" or in any other way not permissible? Any insight would be appreciated.

I dont see any difference just as the price for actual expenses would cost more (i.e. gas and repairs). By the pro-rata of mileage used for business and personal, there will be the appropriate depreciation, gas and other expenses.....

Your tax software can calculate the deduction amount. Just keep good track of mileage and other auto expenses....

Take care,

Mobile office instead of hotel room!! Work related = deductible.

I think that an RV might be considered a "dwelling unit" (sleeping facility, kitchen, bath & shower) and therefore it may be subject to the rules of section 280A. Not sure though. It would seem that if the primary purpose of the trip was business related, then intuitively costs should be deductible.
