There are more places than ever that allow you to park your Tiny House RV legally – see the listing at bottom.
Here is another good place to start:http://www.tinyhousecommunity.com/map/communities/#6/48.225/-122.047
There are over 17,000 Building Departments in the US and we are not able to follow all of the regulations related to Tiny House RVs in your area. Your local building department can tell you where you can legally place a Tumbleweed Tiny House RV, which is a licensed Travel Trailer .
Mobility matters to tiny dwellers
When Tumbleweed speaks with future tiny home RV owners like you, we often hear about the desire for a nice, stylish RV. The architecture, interior spaces and mobility are important considerations. Most of you like the flexibility of relocating or towing your tiny house RV to various locations:
Your Property: Your RV may be placed in your backyard or property depending on local building codes. Local and state laws support RVs generally (versus small structures with foundations). We advise you to research county or city Building Codes or neighborhood RV regulations, which vary more widely. When parked, you connect to your home’s or property’s existing water, electricity and septic/sewer systems.
Mobile Home Parks, RV Parks and Campgrounds: As a traveler, you and your Tiny House RV are welcome at many RV facilities nationwide. These locations, whether parks or campgrounds, offer all necessary and full hookups for water, electricity and septic…and often cable TV (if you have it). Many offer multi-month space rental.
Tiny House Communities:http://www.tinyhousecommunity.com/map/communities/
Off Grid: Tiny House RVs may be parked and used in more remote locations, and we suggest checking with your municipality. Without utility access, your water and propane tanks (if selected) would need to be re-filled. Electricity may be generated through solar, depending on sun access. Finally we recommend opting for a composting toilet supplied by Tumbleweed.
Social Media: Contact people in the area that are already talking about tiny houses.
Also search “Tiny House Enthusiasts” on Meetup.com to see if there is a group in your area. This group consists of fellow tiny house enthusiasts looking to work with local zoning departments, etc. to create new places to park tiny houses.
TINY HOUSE FRIENDLY MUNICIPALITIES
These places allow living in a tiny house on wheels either in a backyard or on your own land:
California: Several counties in California allow a tiny house on wheels in a backyard if it is a caregiver cottage. Fresno, CA allows a tiny house on wheels in a backyard without requiring it to be a caregiver cottage.
Kentucky: Pulaksi county, KY allows a tiny house on your own land.
Maine: North Yarmouth, Maine allows a tiny house on your own land.
Massachusetts: Nantucket voters approved tiny houses on wheels on private property. Tiny houses must conform to building code, except that they may be on trailers. The article is waiting for review by the Attorney General.
