The IRS allows you to depreciate an RV over five years. You can also use the section 179 deduction.

For more information about depreciating your RV, click the link below:

I have a new RV that I have been renting out on RVShare. I  selected the Section 179 depreciation method and selected 7 years but turbotax also put a 7 year depreciation in the MACRS section. Is that possible or do I need to go delete one?
