Despite the best efforts of reality TV shows to make "going tiny" look easy, the challenge remains for living legally
According to the Recreational Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA), the answer is a resounding "NO!"
The RVIA defines Park Model Recreational Vehicles (PMRVs) as:
"A park model RV (also known as a recreational park trailer) is a trailer-type RV that is designed to provide temporary accommodation for recreation, camping or seasonal use. PMRVs are built on a single chassis, mounted on wheels and have a gross trailer area not exceeding 400 square feet in the set -up mode. They are certified by their manufacturers as complying with the ANSI A119.5 standard for recreational park trailers."
Further, the RVIA states that:
"These RVs are used for recreational purposes only. They are not meant to be permanently affixed to the property, they do not improve property values in any way, and they are neither designed nor intended by their manufacturers to be used as permanent residences."
