HUD Wants to Make Living in a Tiny House or RV Illegal

Tiny House rv-compressed

By Daisy Luther | Activist Post

The tiny house movement has taken America by storm, in part because our economy is in the toilet. People are striving to reduce their expenses by embracing minimalism. They’re breaking free from the corporate grind because, as I’ve always advised, they are learning to live with less and radically reducing their expenses.


But, these days in America, you are sharply admonished when you try to live your life outside of the strictures of the 9-5 world. Is it any surprise that the government is now taking steps to limit our ability to drastically reduce our expenses? They always seem to make illegal anything we try to do to be more independent and moving into a tiny house appears to be the next on their list.

HUD has proposed the following law:

This proposed rule would modify the current exemption for recreational vehicles in the Manufactured Home Procedural and Enforcement Regulations.  Under the current exemption, questions have arisen regarding whether park model recreational vehicles are regulated by HUD’s manufactured home program. These park models are being produced with patio roofs, screened in porches, and other extensions that exceed the 400 square foot maximum exemption in the current regulations. Additionally, some of these models are being marketed as suitable for year round living. HUD’s proposed rule would permit recreational vehicle manufactures to certify that a unit is exempted from HUD’s regulations. 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.

That’s right – if this law is passed, living in a tiny house or an RV may become illegal in April of this year.

  121. 212042285813037@facebook.com' Chris Munger says:

    UGH! I’m so sick of these types of articles. The proposed change has nothing to do with making living in one illegal. It has everything to do with the exemption. This is geared towards manufacturers and has more to do with “truth in advertising”. This also only applies to a “factory build vehicular structure, not certified as a manufactured home”. Clue in on FACTORY BUILD.

    Time for me to drop pages like this one. There is nothing Conscious about this type of click-bait and deliberately misleading reporting.

    Here:
    This proposed rule would modify the current exemption for recreational vehicles in the Manufactured Home Procedural and Enforcement Regulations. Under the current exemption, questions have arisen regarding whether park model recreational vehicles are regulated by HUD’s manufactured home program. These park models are being produced with patio roofs, screened in porches, and other extensions that exceed the 400 square foot maximum exemption in the current regulations. Additionally, some of these models are being marketed as suitable for year round living. HUD’s proposed rule would permit recreational vehicle manufactures to certify that a unit is exempted from HUD’s regulations. 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.

    Nonsense. The rule doesn’t apply to owners, it would only restrict what manufacturers can claim about the motor homes they produce.

    My husband and I own an rv repair service, Many of these people are trying desperately to live off their SS. Some of them simply don’t make enough money to buy a house or pay rent in an apartment. This makes my heart hurt.

      Please read the ruling. It does not prohibit living in an RV. This is about selling substandard manufactured homes as permanent dwellings.

  137. 10206279292649225@facebook.com' Lu Ann Daniels says:

    Very misleading headline. This ruling does not say, anywhere, that it would be illegal to live in an RV. All it does is clarify the definition of RV and manufactured home, because RVs are (apparently) held to lower standards. This new law says they cannot build a manufactured home ( by definition) according to RV standards, then sell it as a permanent dwelling. Please read the ruling before commenting.

    What building standards are being applied to these tiny homes? Inspections? Building codes? The problem is that as these become more popular the yahoos come out of the woodwork with substandard materials and construction. Are you going to get zapped touching an appliance because of a bad ground? Burn alive as a spark in the wall from all the wire nuts falling off from bouncing down the freeway causes a loose connection…c’mon people, think this through. I can just see some nail gun sun deck bouncing off a house in transit and into the lap of somebody in a Camry behind it. In the 80’s there was a short-lived craze of gray market luxury cars. You could get a high end beemer or mercedes for $15-20K cheaper in europe, ship it over and put in DOT stuff to make it street legal (door reinforcement beam, unleaded fuel restrictor, catalytic converter and minor electrical so that the headlights didn’t flash with the turn signals). The problems started happening when schloky outfits were botching the conversions and cars couldn’t pass smog or make it over the Rockies. The DOT then passed a rule that all these conversion guys had to be factory certified in each make of car they were touching.
