Well, since we cannot see your panel it is hard to tell what is possible and what is not.
Can you post a pic of it, or maybe a make and model number?

If there is only one spot you CANNOT use it for a two-pole breaker.

There are only three spots in your panel? I highly doubt it.

Can you give us some more detail about what you are trying to do?
A 30A RV receptacle is 120v, not 240v, so it would only need one space anyway.

Yes, you can use a 2-pole breaker for a 120 Volt load. Just leave one of the terminals unused.
