HUD Plans To Crack Down On Tiny Homes, RV’s

Wising up to RV owners' decision to treat their vehicles as homes and upgrade them as such without having to deal with any of the red tape that would normally come with such additions, HUD is preparing a rule that prohibits owners from doing just that. If the department manages to get the law passed, then people who live in their motorhomes will no longer be able to claim recreational vehicle exemptions for their residences:

“Specifically, HUD’s proposed rule would define a recreational vehicle as a factory build vehicular structure, not certified as a manufactured home, designed only for recreational use and not as a primary residence or for permanent occupancy, and built and certified in accordance with either the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 1192-2015, Standard for Recreational Vehicles, or the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) A119.5-15, Recreational Park Trailer Standard. In addition, to provide consumers notice regarding the manufacturing standards used to construct the unit, HUD’s rule would require that units claiming the exemption display a notice that identifies the standards used to construct the unit and states that the unit is designed only for recreational use, and not as a primary residence or permanent dwelling.”
