Did you know that RVs are not DOT approved for medical transportation?
RV Motorhomes are basically stick homes built on top of a truck chassis. An accident in one could cause injuries and death to many.
RVs or Class A motorhomes are not subjected to the same extensive crash worthiness safety requirements as automobiles.
“The typically relatively small Class A motor home builder will then essentially build a stick-built home on top of that truck chassis. Unlike the extensive crash worthiness safety requirements for automobiles, the RV manufacturers may have little or no legal crashworthiness standards which apply to their work.”
