Two criteria are at play. Number of passengers and Type of brakes.

The Semi has air brakes and a trailer-- Class A.
The charter bus has air brakes and carries more than 15 passengers-- Class B w/ Passenger endorsement.
The tow-truck is odd- I assume that requires liability and specialized equipment certification.
The RV must not have air brakes nor be designed to seat more than 15 persons.

Long wheel-base and high-mass is all it shares with the top two that is relevant to driving skills.

I'm licensed to drive all of those vehicles. With that considered, I definitely think a special license should be required to drive a large RV. Most states will go by weight. I think a class C provisional license in Oregon is good up to 26,000 lbs. For reference to that weight, I`ve driven down the road hauling 103,000 lbs (requires special permits for that load).

I agree with Angilion. An extension of a normal license would make perfect sense for an RV driver. They are huge and it is nothing like driving anything smaller. I was nervous enough driving a 26' moving truck with no instruction. I wouldn`t even consider driving an RV without some lessons.

[..]its not about the size of the vehicle, its about what the purpose of the vehicle is for[..]


True, but maybe it should also be about the size of the vehicle. Driving a bus-sized RV isn't entirely the same as driving a car. I think it would be fair to require additional proof of competence for driving larger vehicles. Maybe more an extension on a standard licence rather than a completely different licence.
