The surface is all sand on my lot so stable it's not.
This is our digs in AZ for snow birding. That's a similar size structure you mentioned. 12x42. That's a 20ft connex under it. The 2500 gal water tank for RWC and we have a permitted septic for our RV. All legal and permitted. In my AZ county you can inhabit a RV if your land is in the correct zone.
Our lot is all sand too. You can still build on it. Concrete piers are 3 ft deep.
