The Air Force requested a decision concerning an employee's claim for reimbursement for costs he incurred in using his motor home while on authorized temporary duty travel. The employee contended that he purchased the motor home for use as a travel residence because of the questionable availability of adequate lodging in the isolated duty areas. GAO held that the claimant was entitled to reimbursement for his monthly interest and utility costs for the motor home, as well as parking and utility fees, since he bought the motor home for use during his temporary duty assignment and sold it thereafter. Accordingly, the claim was allowed.
