Check with any realtor in the area you want to buy in and make a list of your requirements and ask them to research property for you.

Hi mackwv,
Consider ownership RV resorts. This has worked well for me. One owns their lot. Pay a monthly fee to let somebody else do the maintenance work.

I owned 35 acres in Colorado. Zoning said I couldn't live on it in an RV... check zoning laws!

Your first stop should be at county zoning office. You can ask a Realtor, but I kind of feel they are as truthful as vehicle sales people. We visit kids/grandkids in three different states every summer and thought we would like to buy land and build a spot for the rv to park while there. In none of the three locations was it legal to put an rv to live in on land, no matter how big a parcel we bought. There are other areas with fewer or no restrictions, so check first.

The only way to do it in Fl is to buy a small house with a large lot in a non restricted area and then you can park and live in the RV as long as the house is livable. We plan to do this and use the house for a living room/bath area and the 5th for sleeping/cooking.

That may be true in places in Florida but you need to check for certain. Some areas prohibit ANY over night sleeping in an RV.

A Realtor (I am one) should be able to provide the info you need on zoning (if they can't/won't - get a different Realtor), but that's just the beginning. Building codes, septic and well permits/regulations, highway access permits, electric connections, TV reception (cable), setback requirements, etc. can all enter the picture. Here in WV, there is very little zoning, but there are many permitting restrictions. You must also check the deed for restrictions. You can best protect yourself by having the title attorney/company provide a title opinion reflecting your proposed use.

Good advice Randy, Thank You.
