The term recreational car (RV) is often used as a broad category of motor vehicles and trailers which include living quarters designed for temporary accommodation.

Standard comforts of an RV include a kitchen, a bathroom, and a couple of sleeping facilities. RVs can range from the pragmatic — containing only sleeping quarters and necessary cooking facilities — into the luxury, with features like air conditioning (AC), water heaters, televisions and satellite receptors, and quartz countertops, for example.

RVs can either be trailers (which can be towed behind motor vehicles) or even self-motorized. Many RVs are single-deck; however, double-deck RVs also exist. To allow a more compact size while in transit, bigger RVs frequently have expandable sides or canopies.
