Second home purchase and expenses. Can a 5th wheel recreational vehicle be considered a 2nd home? Can purchase expenses be deducted?
It can be considered a 2nd home IF it meets the IRS definition of a home: it must contain sleeping, cooking and toilet
facilities. If it qualifies, the interest on the loan can be deducted as 2nd home mortgage interest. Otherwise, you cannot deduct the loan interest.
