  1. HUD and Mobile Home industry have ganged up against the RV industry. An RV is for temporary recreational use and not for permanent occupancy or primary residence. Article link: https://federalregister.gov/a/2016-02387 or this: https://www.federalregister.gov/articles/2016/02/09/2016-02387/manufactured-home-procedural-and-enforcement-regulations-revision-of-exemption-for-recreational Could get nasty... I've had problems in the past from Census trying to locate our home (using Escapee park in Livingston) and had issues with Stock Brokers citing the Patriot Act (not having a stick home or permanent address).. Could even negate our IRS 1st or 2nd home deduction since the RV isn't a home. Voting??
  2. I researched a proposed rule change announced Monday by HUD. The goal was to differentiate between RVs and mobile homes. But some are concerned about a separate passage that reiterates motorhomes and travel trailers are for recreational uses and not to become someone's primary residence. I hope to follow up with a lot of stakeholders to learn what, if any, impact this change has, if approved. Feel free to read what I know so far based on a little research: http://youngfulltimers.com/federal-government-pushing-for-disclaimers-discouraging-full-time-rv-living/ Will enjoy hearing what folks think so far...outside of the handful of public comments already submitted electronically.
