You might think your passengers could have a little fun in the RV while you’re driving. That could lead you to ask, “Can passengers drink alcohol in an RV?”

No. In most states, it is illegal to drink alcohol in an RV while it is moving. If you’re crossing state lines, you’ll need to check each state but to be safe, it’s better not to have any open alcohol containers in your RV.

Drinking alcohol in an RV is a big no-no when you’re the driver—that’s obvious. But even passengers can get into trouble for drinking in RVs that are in motion. Learning the different rules of the road can help you avoid trouble when you’re trying to have a good time.

States That Allow Passengers to Drink In an RV

At the time of writing this, these are the states that allow passengers to drink in an RV that is in operation.

  • Mississippi
  • Virginia
  • Tennessee
  • Rhode Island
  • Missouri
  • Delaware
  • Connecticut

Again, make sure you check the laws. I am not a lawyer and I don’t want you to get into any trouble.
