More about the RTP:
The Recreational Trails Program (RTP) provides funds to the States to develop and maintain recreational trails and trail-related facilities for both nonmotorized and motorized recreational trail uses. Examples of trail uses include hiking, bicycling, in-line skating, equestrian use, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, off-road motorcycling, all-terrain vehicle riding, four-wheel driving, or using other off-road motorized vehicles.
Each State administers its own program, usually through a State resource or park agency.
Here in AZ it is the Arizona State Parks Department.
Funding mystery solved ... it's just an estimate
of how much fuel is used by RVs:
The RTP funds come from the Federal Highway Trust Fund, and represent a portion of the motor fuel excise tax collected from nonhighway recreational fuel use: fuel used for off-highway recreation by snowmobiles, all-terrain vehicles, off-highway motorcycles, and off-highway light trucks. The estimates are based on a model developed by the Oak Ridge National Laboratory...
Arizona State Parks has been receiving $1.8-1.9 million per year from this fund in recent times.
