RV Robo is armed with the RV Sword (ＲＶソード Aru Bui Sōdo) which it uses in its Violent Dash Cut (激走斬り Gekisō Kiri) where RV Robo charges towards its opponent and performs a spinning slash, posing as it explodes in the background (making it the first Sentai Robo Sword Attack that does not involve an aura of energy). During the final battle against Exhaus, RV Robo uses an alternative sword technique called Violent Dash Cut Hyper Crusher where RV Robo spins excessively while in midair to strike through Exhaus' body like a drill with the RV Sword, through it does not work, as Exhaus easily survives the attack.
RV Robo is also armed with the tire-shaped Radial Shield (ラジアルシールド Rajiaru Shīrudo) and can fire an energy blast from the lights on its chest called the Plugnado Spark (プラグネードスパーク Puragunēdo Supāku). Other attacks include Yellow Vehicle Kick, Yellow Vehicle Spin Kick (イエロービークル回転キック Ierō Bīkuru Kaiten Kikku), Pink Vehicle Punch (ピンクビークルパンチ Pinku Bīkuru Panchi), and RV Hairpin Kick. RV Robo can also equip VRV Robo's limbs in order to form an alternative combination called Scramble Intersection Robo.
RV Robo was stolen by Bowzock during Dappu's hibernation, thus leaving Carranger unable to protect Earth until VRV Master bestowed the Victory Ranger Vehicles on them. Bowzock later used RV Robo to attack Earth, having equipped it with a giant battery that would explode if too badly damaged which prevented the Carrangers from fighting back with VRV Robo. Fortunately, Red Racer was able to remove the battery, allowing the Carranger to reclaim their mecha.
RV Robo was wrecked alongside VRV Robo in the finale, but were shown rebuilt during the Carrangers' victory party. It also appeared in Megaranger vs. Carranger, and its power helped to power up GaoKing in Gaoranger vs. Super Sentai. Its suit actor was Hideaki Kusaka.
Megaranger vs. Carranger
Gaoranger vs. Super Sentai
When GokaiOh and Gosei Great faced the Black Cross Colossus, the mecha of the first 33 Super Sentai, including RV Robo which possibly manifested from a toy version like DaiDenzin and the Variblune, appeared to back them up. When the Black Cross Colossus summoned several giant villains to oppose them, RV Robo fought alongside Engine-O and Dairen'Oh to destroy Crime Minister Yogoshimacritein. After all the giant villains were destroyed, all 35 mecha weakened Black Cross Colossus with a combined attack before GokaiOh combined with the Variblune to become Goren GokaiOh which destroyed the Black Cross Colossus with the Gokai Hurricane: Cassiopeia finisher. With the battle won, the 33 past Super Sentai mecha vanished.
Ranger Vehicles (レンジャービークル Renjā Bīkuru): When Inventor Grotch discovered that eating Earth imo-youkan allowed the Bowzock to grow giant, the Carrangers knew that they had to find a way to counter their opponents' new power. Especially since even Grotch was able to overwhelm them when enlarged. Upon noticing that the model cars the Carrangers had built based on their individual dream cars were the same as the Five Car Constellations, Dappu used Carmagic to infuse the models with the power of the constellations, transforming them into giant car mecha which are able to combine into RV Robo with the command "Racing Fusion!" (激走合体! Gekisō Gattai!). The Ranger Vehicles are stored at Pegasus Garage when not needed while the Speeder Machines dock within them to serve as their cockpits

Video Game appearances
Gekisou Sentai Carranger: Zenkai! Racer Senshi
RV Robo and the individual Ranger Vehicles are a major part of the story of the video game Gekisou Sentai Carranger: Zenkai! Racer Senshi. The RV Mechas have been dismantled and their parts scattered all around, so it is up to the Carrangers to collect all the parts required to rebuild them, all the while fighting the Bowzock gang. The parts appear in the form of cogs and gears, and can only be obtained by striking various objects and killing off Wumpers along the way, among other forms (finding and getting an engine, for example, will give off ten parts). Each Mecha requires 50 parts to be rebuilt.
There are two possible endings depending on whether or not all five mecha were rebuilt. If they are, then the "good" ending is triggered. After Gynamo grows huge, RV Robo is formed and proceeds to battle Gynamo in the middle of the city. RV Robo than defeats Gynamo once and for all. If not, the "bad" ending will be triggered instead, where the Carranger are unable to form RV Robo. With no one to stop him, the Bowzock destroy Earth.
- All driving scenes, plus the transformation, is done using stop motion with a customized toy variant of the mecha. It was used earlier in Kousoku Sentai Turboranger in 1989 where the Turbo Machines used toy variants just for action scenes and the combination scenes.
