Thanks Overlander - Just because you see it on the internet don't make it so.

Just to add some meat to this thread and make it a bit more interesting.

My mother lived outside a small town in Kansas. The local zoning ordinance at that time did not allow mobile homes to be permitted as living space. Now, you got to understand this is farm country. Wheat fields, pasture, dairy operations, weeds, rusted barb wire fences and falling down barns as well as deserted homes are the norm. A mobile home would be nice to look at in comparison.

So one thoughtful guy submitted a permit for a barn. It was approved and he built the barn. Guess what he stored in the barn. Nice place to keep a mobile home dry and warm.

Innovation is a good thing. Pat

I think it may be, like, that young lady's attempt at making a video for her freshman "communications" class. Like, you know, like? Like, like? Maybe there's a point in there somewhere, but, it's like, hard to find, you know??

She has a follow-up video in which she corrects some of the misconceptions that she had fallen for. Check youtube under pippi peterson, full-time rv living, part 2.

That was SO painful to watch. I'd rather watch a 30 minute cat video.

I may be wrong (often are), but my understanding is that HUD's proposal, if it passes, attempts to bring "park models" up to the standards and codes of "manufactured homes" with respect to safety. Not sure if the intent is to actually include RV's, because even when I read the original proposal it was not clear to me if, or when, they were actually making a distinction between the two.

More of our government getting involved and making regulations where none are needed, but that's only my opinion an worth just what you paid for it.

Maybe HUD is seeing a trend in a shift in housing as many move into affordable housing such as park model homes, tiny homes and RVs. If HUD feels too many people are living full time in RVs then they will put new regulations on the RV industry. Sorry you can't live full time in your Airstream because you are living in a structure not built to code.

The governments (fed, state and local) are making it harder to full time too. Affordable Care Act, licensing of vehicles, safety inspections the list goes on. I feel all the forms of governments are trying to force everyone to be in a stick and brick structure so they can collect more taxes from us. No wonder she over reacted.

Kelvin, you may be right. I wonder, however, if this is actually put in play, and enforced, how many people will actually become homeless?

What is their plan for making sure homelessness is up to code?
