The RV Industry Association (RVIA), which states on its website that RVs are for “temporary living” (see below), recently told the Washington Post that there are a million RVers living full-time in theirs. Many are living in one place all year long, which technically makes them mobile homes and subject to H.U.D. rules and regulations, which includes building them to higher standards. To RV park owners, such full-time residents would be tenants, the same as in a mobile home park.
We came across this post on a Facebook group. To confirm if it’s true we would like to learn if any RVtravel.com readers have come across a situation like what’s described. If so, we’d love to hear about your experiences, and talk to the RV parks involved to learn more about what, we suspect, could become a trend. Let me know at Chuck@rvtravel.com .
From RVIA.org, the website of the RV Industry Association, the definition of a recreational vehicle. Note the word “temporary.”
