Yes, they are allowed. Some people have quite negative reactions towards them. Start browsing or using the search function to acquaint yourself with the controversy.

You can always cram the chicks in to the rv and drive it off the road, leaping out at the last minute, like they used to do in 70s action teevee. Then you get rid of both chicks and chick magnet.

(Besides, they only really want to use the shower.)

Yep. You have to trade it in for the Ford Econoline white windowless van. ;)

Here is a view of the city. You can determine for yourself how prevalent RV's are:

If you can't find a place to park it when you get there, they have a special RV camp on the inner circle just toward the man from center camp. You have to have a really big RV to get in there, though.

Yes, they are "allowed." If you rent one, be prepared to spend a LOT of time cleaning it or just consider the cleaning deposit part of the entertainment fee.

I wish more people covered the dumb logos and advertising on the RVs, though.

Or at least change them around a little. Winablowjob has a nice ring to it.

And how exactly would you do that and still get your deposit back?

Anything that you place over the sides is going to rub in the wind and rub the paint right off and making tape can go bad out there.

However, you just reminded me of painter's tape. That could work well. :)

A couple of years ago I read about a good trick for covering logos. No personal experience with it, but....

Spray or brush a washable oily substance over the logo, and the Playa dust will stick and cover the logo. Something like cooking oil, I think.
