Is telecommuting considered "going to work"? Before I retired I always traveled with my laptop and occasionally had to connect to the office for a problem.

I for one am thrilled that all real problems in this Nation are finally resolved and that our leaders can move on with these far more important dangerous issues !

This had me a little worried due to the fact that I hope to be full timing one day.

Bottom line, do we need more regulations? How many people will it save, and from what? What is the cost to taxpayers? Danger - Beware Clerics at Work.

But, the thread started 3-26-16.
It's just a scam so the manufacturer can add a $100.00 upgrade to make it meet the standard for full time and then raise the price by $5000.00.

Doesn't that HUD regulation just state the obvious? RVs aren't built as heavily as a house. I don't see any RVs made with 2x6 walls, or room for a couple feet of insulation in the attic.

Laws preventing permanently living in an RV exist in many areas. A lot of areas even ban manufactured housing (aka mobile homes) except in a specific trailer park. Its nothing new.

Most laws exist because someone pissed someone else off. We've all seen pictures of RVs up on blocks, slowing rotting away. The place I wintered went around and checked under tire covers to make sure no one was putting their trailer up on blocks. I assume the occasional pass through by the local sheriff was checking on that detail (and using his LPR to look for hits).

It is the first day of April. Before losing sleep over RVing becoming illegal, or small houses, stick built or manufactured, consider some of the hovels people are choosing to live in right now. Any regulation that limits square feet of living area, wall material, etc. would have to have one heck of a grandfathering clause to allow occupancy of a large percentage of NYC apartments, Southern share-cropper's homes, Native American reservation housing, etc.

Sadly logic and sense seldom enters into these discussions. A number of folks claim government interference is evil, so all regulations should be abolished. My favorite was, "Get the government out of my social security." As I said, logic need not apply.

This isn't a law or regulation, it's a proposal. Make comment to your congressional representative. OH, wait, if you full time you probably don't vote, so you're out of luck. I'd worry more about the 'security' issues around I.D., voter registration, etc. than making housing types illegal.

It's misinformation or misinterpretation of an RVIA request to clarify the difference between a park model and manufactured housing:

FWIW the last I knew manufactured housing modules were up tp 14 x 70 or 980 sq ft. That's bigger than the house 5 of us grew up in. ;-)

Seriously??? I don't offend easily, but this comment even offended me! Why would anyone make that kind of discriminatory judgmental statement? Talk about stereotyping.......jeez.

In most states, in order to vote, you need a 'government issued picture I.D. with a local address.' (at least in Ohio) A passport won't do because it doesn't have an address. My statement wasn't discriminatory, just a fact. Full timers have trouble getting a library card too.

This kind of 'slippery slope' fear mongering is the thing that should be offensive. I didn't believe it when they tried to sell the Vietnam war, '..if communists get one country, the rest will fall like dominos.'

I don't think a clarification of definitions of home types is a first step in banning all full timers. I've seen the same argument used about segregation, weapons, and countless other things people are 'against.'

It may not be discriminatory but it certainly demonstrates a lack of knowing the facts. I don't know of one fulltimer who wants to register to vote, that has any problem doing so. At least in the 3 prime fulltimer states of SD, TX, FL we register & vote just like everyone else. Maybe things are different there in the great state of OH, but in SD, TX and Fl we do get a Gov photo ID with our local address, its called a drivers lic. That same address gets us a library card, a state fishing lic, a CCW permit, social security, Medicare or VA benefits, state issued professional licenses, and even keeps the IRS happy.

You can pass legislation,but enforcing it, and getting it past the courts is another thing.
