Most states already have a law covering this,

From TX innkeepers law explained:

Quote

Refusal to leave upon request is a misdemeanor. Hotel owners may call any law enforcement officer to remove or eject illegal guests

The article states that "...HB555 simply puts RV parks on the same footing under the law as hotels and motels..." so I imagine that the issue is whether RV parks are considered hotels or motels for the purposes of this law.

I note that the statement posted by Kirk reads  "Hotel owners may call any law enforcement officer to remove or eject illegal guests". 

Is an RV Park a Hotel as far as Innkeeper laws are concerned?

The new Alabama law specifically granting RV parks the same status with regards to ejecting unruly tenants that hotels/motels have seems to be a good idea. I wonder how many other states explicitly give RV parks these same protections.

If so, will RV parks have to pay the same lodging taxes as hotels do?

Already do in some states.

I believe that is true at least to some degree in most states. It can be difficult to pin down just what taxes each state charges because there is no uniform name for any given tax.

When you look closely most RV parks have a copy of the innkeepers law posted somewhere. Innkeepers laws cover many things one would not expect. Regardless if posted or not, it is the public's responsibility to know their states laws, ignorance is not an excuse in court.
