Carl Lundquist said:In California it is illegal to ride in a travel trailer period.? ?One can ride in a 5th trailer providing that:? ?
1.? ?The trailer is equipped with safety glass;
2.? ?It has an exit door that can be opened both from the inside and outside.
3.? ?There is a audible or visual device with which the passenger can contact the driver.
The same rules apply to a truck mounted camper.
Frankly, in my opinion riding in a camper or trailer is a bad idea.? For one thing, where are the properly mounted seat belts for the passengers.? For another, a trailer has the crash integrity of a cracker box

The laws of physics should dictate the choice.
Hint: Most states have found it not a prudent choice... need more hints?

However, I must say that during WWII we converted car carrier trailers to buses (i.e. enclosed and added seats) and hauled a lot of people every day to work around Ohio for several years without injury as far as I can remember.
