Having dealt with one of my favorite "hater" states, Illinois, I did a quick grab off of their Illinois State Police website, and I quote:
If a non-resident is coming to Illinois to hunt and would like to bring their firearm, how do they legally transport it?
Non- residents must be legally eligible to possess or acquire firearms and ammunition in their state of residence. It is recommended that, in order to be in compliance with all statutes, non-residents transport all firearms:
Enclosed in a case, and
Not immediately accessible or broken down in a nonfunctioning state.
Is it legal to have ammunition in the case with the firearm?
Yes, so long as the firearm is unloaded and properly enclosed in a case.
I have a friend/relative who has a "conceal and carry" permit issued in the state in which they reside. Is the permit recognized in Illinois?
No. Non-residents are subject to Illinois law, restrictions, and penalties, and should be familiar with them if the non-resident plans to bring a firearm into the state of Illinois.
I use Illinois as an example of how it is in some states, even when you've done everything legal in your state. And this does not preclude local ordinances prohibiting transportation within, say, city limits. And the FOID is Firearms Owner ID card. Just check your rights at the border.
I suspect that the vast majority of RV'ers that travel with firearms do not have CONCEALED permits. If it is in your RV who would know its there? NOW there are some Yankee states that have heart burn for you just having one. I suggest you obtain a copy of firearm laws (check google for website) for more precise info.
If its not within reach of the driver and/or in a locked case, then you are transporting a firearm, not carrying it. When parked, the rules are the same as if you were in a stick house (and vary according to the state you are in). No state can prohibit you from transporting a weapon though their state. Whether you can uncase it outside of your "residence" is another matter.
You NEVER need a CC permit to transport your guns. Only if you carry them on your person. MOST states require that you transport them unloaded and in some cases the amo must be stored separately from the weapon. Many states also honor others CC permits provided they are equal to or MORE strict than their own.

It is usually known as a "Concealed Carry Permit".
That is, as opposed to "Open Carry".
Note the word "CARRY". This usually means to have the weapon on your person, as in a fanny holster, shoulder holster, in a purse, etc.
Do you plan on "carrying" the weapon in a manner where it is not readily visible?
If not, you normally do not need a Concealed Carry Permit.
Of course, there are ALWAYS exceptions, especially when it comes to THE LAW!
Even more so when you cross state lines!
It is, of course, up to YOU to KNOW the laws of the area in which you are traveling, and to comply with such laws.
I do NOT recommend that you trust any list of laws available on the internet. IMO, you should check with the applicable bureaucracy in the state in which you are going to travel, and get their response IN WRITING, with references to the applicable statutes.
