After Walt's decision to go into the meth trade, Jesse informs Walt that he neglected to think of an appropriate location for them to cook, suggesting they purchase a "camper" so they can set-up a mobile lab. Walt gives Jesse his life savings, an amount less than $7000, and tells him to negotiate. The next day, Jesse returned with a 1986 Fleetwood Bounder ("Pilot").
In season three, it is revealed via flashback that the Bounder is not the RV Jesse had originally intended to buy, having spent much of Walt's money at a strip club. Despite the setback Combo offered an alternative RV for $1400 which Jesse promptly bought. Combo stole the RV from his mother and gave it to Jesse. ("Mas")
The RV was in poor shape and often had difficulty starting. Jesse accidentally drained the battery when they were on an extended cook session and the vehicle had to be jumped via homemade batteries. ("4 Days Out") The RV has 5 bullet holes on the front door and was later covered up by tape. ("Pilot") As part of Hank's investigation, the RV was tracked down and trapped in Old Joe's junkyard. As soon as Hank was distracted, the RV was throughly destroyed to cover up the meth lab it contained. ("Sunset")
Walt and Jesse talk about it when Jesse leaves the business, Jesse jokes about how he'd get nervous when there was a red light and would pray that it wouldn't die. ("Gliding Over All")
