Bender, thank you for joining community!

Interesting question or tax planning strategy. If you are depreciating it as a business vehicle, it is not subject to luxury auto limits and the answer appears to be yes. Bonus depreciation applies to personal property with a useful life of less than 20 years.

Motor homes are often treated as second residences, or even home offices. If you treat the MH as 100% business, make sure the taxpayer has another residence and isn’t only sleeping in the business vehicle, which would indicate personal use. Good luck!
