Michigan MI Long Term and Year Round Campgrounds and RV Parks

Again, no offense meant at all, but this is something we have been struggling with. At least half of the folks living in mobile parks where we live use the require lots of social services my husband works in this field , hence his concern… Thanks for your thoughts and best of luck.. The current house is in a very nice, quite neighborhood, or neighbor and the guy next to him both drive truck they are parked outside often. The one we were in was really nice, we were on the outside of the park, think there were police out there once on a domestic disturbance. Same with the park my grandmother lived in for years. I have been concerned about this though, since some that we looked at were quite run down and scary looking. Some will be limited income, some with be scary. Apartment buildings are like that too as are residential areas. We checked out a few areas and picked the one that looked cleanest. The nice thing is that if we were wrong, we can easily move.

You can park it almost anywhere it will fit for at least a little while ha! Parking and living in a tiny house… Legally… very few places so far. Where to live is the one major sticking point understandably that prevents a lot of people from choosing tiny. It is a big investment to take for limited security. Legalities… So, here is how tiny houses are viewed by the legal entities: If you are registered as a mobile home you can live full time in a mobile home park legally or in any zone that allows mobile homes a lot of downtown districts surprisingly are not anti mobile home.

The caveat here is that sometimes the mobile home parks require that the home be built by a licensed manufacturer for safety reasons understandable , not always but sometimes. That is a sticky point if you are a DIY tiny houser. If this is the path that makes sense for you I would encourage you to have the conversation with potential locations prior to starting construction.
