Carol and I ordered a new 38GK. Started looking for land to park it on full time. We now live in Colorado Springs. Four counties around us will not allow campers to be on land.(they allow modulars and trailers) Even if we have inspections on a well, septic, and electric. We want to just move to the country and live in the camper and travel around a few times a year.Any suggestions?
buy a nice piece of land and build a beautiful 40x60 machine shed on it. Park the Redwood inside and live in it. That way you can open the doors and pull your home out and travel when you wish.
I saw this set up in a motor home magazine a long time ago and fell in love with it. Their campsite inside the barn was set up like a living room with astro-turf and a gas fires pit. Of course they had full hook ups inside the barn.
That would be cool - I'd even settle for just having a garage to back it into when I wasn't using it - kind of like a seasonal house.
I was eyeballing Creede CO a few years back - You can buy a space and stay as long as you want. But you do have to put up with the Prevost guys that built flagstone patios with fish ponds and fireplaces and patio covers and giant barbecues with refrigerators. They were cool, but looked kind of weird when they weren't there.

I checked and around here it would work in rural areas and that's in the state of Illinois (which is not open minded at all). The article I read was about a couple in Indiana.
Dave, I actually know someone who purchased land in the country in Illinois and then had a huge steel building installed and then proceeded to build a house inside the building. From the outside it looks like a commercial storage building but on the inside it is a beautiful home. He never had to let inspectors in and his taxes are very inexpensive because it looks like just a storage building. I too like the idea of having a large steel building erected and then maybe have a full bath built inside but that's about it. Then have the hookups placed inside for when I'm in the area. When I'm not in the area it is just a shell.

We purchased a "lot" in Aguanga, CA (near Temucula, CA.) in an RV resort last November. Many live there several months a year and travel from there. It has a golf course on site along with several in-ground pools and wash/dry facilities. Go to www.RanchoCaliforniaResort.com and have a look.
Only 5th Wheels and Class A Motorhomes at least 30 feet long are allowed to be parked on the property. If you want to build what's called a build-out on your lot you may do so, however, it's not required and many don't. Several owners rent out their lots when they're not using it.
