Back when I got my first camper (3months ago) everybody told me I had to use RV tp. You guys that have been around the block a few times adhere to this?

I did the test where you soak the tp in water and RV tp definitely dissolves lots faster than, say, Scott brand does. So am I over thinking this?

While you are waiting search this Forum for `toilet paper' and read on. We use Scotts single ply.

Use any toilet paper you want, RV toilet paper is a rip off.

I would not suggest using just any TP in an RV. Biggest problem with the 'plush' type TP is that is stays wadded in a ball and easily gets lodged in the dump valve while dumping, preventing closure all the way. Trying to force closure of the valve only pushes it further into the valve blade slot. I would surmise any single ply TP is most safe.... and be sure to use plenty of water in every flush.

Old-fashioned test it put chunk of paper into a jar, add some water and shake it for few seconds.
If the paper breaks on small pieces it is good.
We've been using Costco paper for few decades just fine.

Single ply is the way to go. Any brand will do.

I disagree with use “any” toilet paper although it doesn’t have to say RV. Use a toilet paper rated for septic systems. Many are … just read the label.

In tests, AngelSoft, Costco, Charmin, Scott have all done as well as "RV toilet paper". The only brand that doesn't deteriorate quickly is Northern. From what I recall, they are all septic safe except the Northern.
