Limited Living Space (400 sq. ft.)[edit]

"By law, travel trailers are limited to 400 square feet (37 m2) of living area, and many models offer exactly that plus any optional slide-outs."

According to 24 CFR 3282[1] travel trailers less than 400 square foot of living space are exempt fro building codes for manufactured housing. Larger models exist but are subject to HUD's standard for housing. Manufacturers and park managers seek "a consensus outcome where RVs are clearly defined as recreational units and manufactured housing is clearly defined as housing in a way that everyone knows exactly where the line between them is."[2] Tdreid (talk) 05:01, 3 March 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Please note that those laws only related to one country (USA by the looks of it), not to the entire world.  Stepho  talk  08:46, 3 March 2016 (UTC)[reply]


"In Europe, the origins of travel trailers and caravanning can be traced back to the travelling Romani people, and showmen who spent most of their lives in horse-drawn caravans."[edit]

Surely there must be more use of caravans as at least temporary accomodation than this? Especially since it links to the living van article on caravans for agricultural traction engine crews, who presumably were mainly not romani or showmen. --Eldomtom2 (talk) 20:10, 1 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]


Caravans vary from basic models which may be little more than a tent on wheels to those containing several rooms with all the furniture and furnishings and equipment of a home. Construction of the solid-wall trailers can be made of metal or fiberglass. Travel trailers are used principally in North America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand.[3][4] 2402:4000:21C2:4F59:C156:8D3:1CD8:8AF2 (talk) 07:07, 1 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Can you rephrase that in sentences of more than one word?  Stepho  talk  23:45, 11 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]
