Hey, we'll be fulltime, saving energy and a great deal of our energy use will go into the RV. Almost all of it.

    No, I don't think you can claim it as a residence.

    Agree as you will need an address on the tax form.

     If you think about it more, you can do whatever you want with taxes, until you get audited :'(

    Yes, you can. But you get to pick whether you want to be a residence or a vehicle. Being a residence  usually involves property taxes. Pick your poison. I've chosen to be a vehicle, and I park it on my property that has no zoning against it. 

    It's a bit complex, so you need to check both the IRS regs and your state law.
