RVs (that is, mobile homes) may be exempted in a bankruptcy case up to the legal limits. You should consult experienced bankruptcy counsel to determine whether you qualify to file and the pros and cons of doing so.

In Ohio, the homestead exemption applies to any property where the debtor(s) live. I have filed for debtors who lived in a camper (with no cooking or plumbing - they parked it in the backyard of relatives house) and debtors who lived on a boat (it was $250,000 boat with all the amenities). So the Ohio homestead exemption applies to a RV.

    In California they do qualify for the homestead exemption. If you do not live in California you need to check with local counsel. You must in fact be living in it to qualify.
