It's done more often with yachts than RVs. The way to do it is form a corporation in a state that does not tax corporations, such as Delaware, and make the corporation the owner of the RV. It's perfectly legal, but the hassles of forming a corporation just for the purpose of owning and maintaining an RV make it impractical unless (1) you own several RVs; (2) they're incredibly expensive RVs; (3) you plan to lease out your RVs when you're not using them so that your corporation has some source of income.
