Subject:  Fifth wheel/Trailer as Primary Residence Date:  8/6/2001  3:08 AM
Author:  Fishnet18 Number:  53099 of 127616

I am a 21 year old college student and my lease is ending in Sept. One option for future residence I have been considering is, rather than throwing $500 a month away in rent, buying an 18 to 25 foot fully self-contained Fifth-wheel or trailor and living in that during school. My question is can I write off the interest on this trailer as I would the interest I was paying on a house as a primary residence? I have heard of RV's as secondary residences but have not been able to find a firm answer on RV's as primary residences. Wondering if anyone had any experience or code that could help me get a solid answer on this topic. Realize that 2 years in an RV can get a little fuzzy but I can deal. Im harldy home anyways. Plus I can take my house fishing!!!!
