The only way it MIGHT be worth it to register as a RV is for full coverage insurance or taking the bus to Mexico.
Things vary state to state.
Here in WA if it weighs 31k, and is NOT registered as an RV, you will be required to have a cdl.
"taxes on an RV pusher"??? Not sure what you mean there. We pay sales tax based on purchase price. What kind or size of vehicle has no effect on tax amount. Solely based on purchase price.
Here in WA a commercial for personal policy costs me twice as what an RV policy costs. Annual registration is significantly cheaper if it is an RV as well.
Again, things vary by state.
