Hud to make living in RV or ‘Tiny House’ illegal

Ask yourself why in the world is the Federal government going after the “Tiny home” market? I suggest it is because of us bitter clingers. Because of the wish to control every aspect of our lives. In the process, many low-income folks will be forced out of a living space because no longer will one be permitted to call most mobile homes a permanent living space. Thus banned into oblivion. Some of these tiny homes aren’t too shabby. See These Cozy Portable Cabins Are The Perfect Place To Unplug

From the White House using race as an excuse to change national zoning laws and define who can live in certain neighborhoods, to global corporations using eminent domain to steal homes, to the city of Seattle trying to ban single-family homes, there is a war on self-reliance brewing.

It’s becoming harder and harder for independent, freedom-minded people to live the lives that they want to live. These aren’t bad people, they are families just trying to live the American Dream; unfortunately, freedom loving Americans seem to be under attack from every direction!

In yet another attempt to go after the self-reliant lifestyle, the federal government has again taken aim at the off-grid lifestyle, and is attempting to ban Tiny Homes and RVs as permanent residences.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development is in the process of putting the finishing touches on proposed regulations that would make living in an RV or a mobile Tiny Home illegal for most people.

The proposed regulations, entitled “FR–5877–P–01 Manufactured Home Procedural and Enforcement Regulations; Revision of Exemption for Recreational Vehicles”, will redefine the industry, and force HUD regulations on those that live the lifestyle. The new regulations are set to modify a current exemption in the Manufactured Home Procedural and Enforcement Regulations. According to the proposed docket information, RVs would be defined 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.”

These new HUD Regulations are no accident. In my opinion, it is part of a larger effort to control every aspect of how we live, where we live, and what we do with our so-called freedoms.

As I’ve pointed out numerous times in the past, governments at all levels, from federal to local zoning boards, are attempting to regulate us out of existence. The only reason people even started to build their tiny homes on these mobile frames was to try to get around the maze of zoning laws that forbid them from building tiny homes on their own land.

Once this HUD ruling goes onto affect, these tiny mobile homes will be a thing of the past. And when that happens, most tiny homes will be a thing of the past as well, since most areas of the country ban these types of homes from being permanently constructed as primary residences.

    “Not as a primary residence or permanent occupancy…”

    I guess I don’t understand this. If you retire and decide to sell your house and spend X number of years traveling around in an RV how will they stop you? Confiscate the RV? Seize the trailer?

    (Interestingly, one of the things the communists did when they took over was ‘encourage’ many peasants|farmers to move to small cheaply made apartments in the cities. Better jobs and a better life style. Actually better to control the population and better able to indoctrinate them. Will this be offered as an alternative here? I wonder.)
    Hard to believe this is still America…Indpendence is fast becoming a forgotten thing. Actually with the ‘death panels’ of obamacare and the recent California elderly decision of your previous post, the sooner the older population goes away the sooner individuality, independence, liberty and the knowledge of true history will fade. The world many of us grew up in will seem like a myth, just a story made up of fantasy and dreams. The young snowflakes growing up now will be easy to control as long as they have their technology, their safe zones and a subsistence allowance.
    Anyway, that is my take.

    I saw this headline somewhere else but I did not read the article. But if I had to guess I would say they are going after the people who buy a plot of land and set up small homes in an attempt to get off the grid. They do not like it when people are self-reliant and I believe these are the people they are probably going after.

      Thats my take. Why else go after these people. It’s a big deal here in Florida where I am spending my winters. In Florida it falls under the Homestead act which gives seniors big breaks in property taxes.

        Remember during the Fast and Furious scandal when someone in the regime said that in order to make an omelet you have to break a few eggs? That seems to be the mentality at play in this story as well.

    Meantime just this morning I read about some city that was contemplating building tiny houses for the homeless. It already been done in many cities. And exactly what are they going to do with all those folks who live in their RV’s year round and follow the good weather? We have an RV park here in Post Falls that’s absolutely beautiful. When I passed by yesterday, I couldn’t help noticing it was packed.

    My guess is this has more to do with licenses and taxes and such. They’ll use this as a way to extract more money from people.

      It will be devastating in Florida. But from my home base, it is used to keep the riff raft out of the community. Any trailer cannot be lived in at all. Park model trailers and Tiny homes will not be manufactured any longer.
