Much ado about nothing.

The rule is only intended to tell the consumer that a RV is not intended for full time occupancy. Not that you can not occupy it full time.


https://www.regulations.gov/#!docume...2016-0013-0001

II. This Proposed Rule
After reviewing the MHCC's recommendation, HUD is accepting the recommendation with revision. Initially, HUD proposes to restructure the exemption by removing it from  3282.8 and codifying it at  3282.15. HUD is also proposing to incorporate ANSI's updated 2015 Recreational Park Trailer Standard, A119.5-15, which after review, HUD believes best reflects the current state of recreational vehicle construction. Finally, to ensure consumer awareness of the difference between manufactured housing and recreational vehicles and the construction standards used to build each, HUD is proposing to require that each ANSI A119.5-15 certified structure seeking an exemption include a notice to be prominently displayed in a temporary manner in the kitchen (i.e., countertop or exposed cabinet face) until the completion of the sale transaction that explains that the manufacturer certifies that the structure is a recreational vehicle designed only for recreational use, and not for use as a primary residence or for permanent occupancy. The notice shall further explain that the manufacturer certifies that the unit has been built in accordance with ANSI A119.5-15. This notice shall be placed prominently to ensure consumers are made plainly aware of the distinction between recreational vehicles that are not self-propelled and manufactured housing, reflecting the intent of the MHCC in its recommendation to draw a clear distinction between the two products.

What is interesting is that the person in the video instead of clarifying the issue complicates it by quoting a lot numbers and manufacturing standards.

Probably nothing, but the wrong people can use regulations like this to create a monster!

I registered my opposition to this change!

I suspect many local ordinances prevent using an RV as housing. My entire township has these rules:

SECTION 305 MINIMUM HABITABLE FLOOR AREA
All dwelling units shall conform to the following

minimum habitable floor area:

a.

1 2 bedroom units; 700 square feet of which at least 75% of the required square footage must be encompassed in the main floor or ground level.


SECTION 414 CAMPGROUND
Campgrounds are subject to the following criteria:

a.

None of the automobile trailers, cabins, travel trailers, motor homes, tents or campers approved for location on the premises shall

be utilized as a permanent place of abode, or a permanent dwelling. It shall

be conclusively presumed that the automobile trailer, cabin, travel trailer, motor home, tent, or camper is in fact being utilized as a permanent dwelling or place of

abode if: 1.

Someone is going to work from the automobile trailer, cabin, travel trailer, motor home, tent, or camper or,


2.

Someone is going to school from the automobile trailer, cabin, travel trailer, motor home, tent, or camper.

Interesting. Based on lynnmor's post one would not be able to use a mobile office. Seemsto say that if one goes to work from there that it would be considered a permenant abode and therefore could not use it.... What?
Going to upset a lot of construction firms.

I guess that I am just a criminal at heart, because I don't plan on quitting full timing any time soon whether they change the laws or not!

May have to put a horse hitch on the front of mine so I can tell them it's my Conestoga Wagon and I am searching for my special place on the frontier.

Just another bureaucrat sitting in a cubicle trying to justify why they have a job, by coming up with another nutty idea . There's a lot of those at the EPA & BLM.
