Um, no. It’s your travelling second home, but it’s travelling. You still have to respect and honor state laws, which may differ from your home state. And travelling into Canada, you can expect an inspection. In at least fifty percent of our crossings, someone inspected the interior of our Ollie. I don’t know much about Mexico crossing, as I have not done that. they don’t like guns, anymore than Canada, from what I have heard
As far as States, don’t even think about transporting a hand gun through new York, or several other states. Leave it at home, even if you have a permit. Unless you have a new York permit, you are subject to arrest and jail and fine. Check out the websites. If your tail light flickers, you could, possibly, be in big trouble.
Open alcohol containers, in the unoccupied trailer, no big deal. Unless you are trying to bring big quantity into Canada. check the website for admissable quantity before duty.
Rx drugs. Most ok. If you have Rx for med marijuana or scheduled drugs, carry a prescription copy with you. States that don’t allow med marijuana will not tolerate it within their borders. Second home or not, your home is on the move. Federal law will likely prevail, which means no, and arrest, and consequences.
Many states do not honor reciprocity on guns, bear spray, pepper spray, even if you have the proper permit in your state. Some, and many, do. It’s up to you, if so inclined, to know the rules on visited states, and comply, appropriately.
It may seem that we are a homogenous country with open borders, but we are not. Every state has rights to limit or expand certain freedoms as they see fit, and it’s up to you as the traveller to know, understand, and keep them.
