Living full time on my land in Plumas or Lassen County (CA/USA)

So I was thinking of buying an acre of land and parking my RV there and living in it, however in Plumas County, they only let you dwell in an RV for 120 days a year. I have not heard back from Lassen County as I asked their planner the same thing but they had to call me back with an answer.

My plan was to live there while I save for a custom home to be built (probably take me 2-3 years). But now it doesn't look like that's a possibility.

Does anyone have any solutions or creative ideas? I was considering buying 2 other small parcels in the area so I could just move around 120 days at each...but I don't know if the 120 days limitation is county wide or just in one location.

If there is an Official monitoring the 120 days, then the staffing levels and budgets are far more extensive then I thought the state budget allows.


There is something special about camping in an RV.

I tend to agree but other folks may be more interested in your situation.

But first find out exactly what the regulations are for each location. ie IN WRITING

So I heard back from Lassen County and they told me in the state of california you are not allowed to live in an RV unless its at an RV park. lol

When I asked how many days I can stay in my RV on my property she had no number for me and just said for A-1 zoning its not allowed to live in an RV.

Could you put up a pole barn to run utilities to, hide yourself and RV inside?

I mean its 9 acres so I doubt that would even be necessary. I'm just not sure how much is accessible from the road for an RV so its possible neighbors or road traffic might notice.

On nine acres who would see the RV? Whats the worst they would do if you stayed over 120 days" Is there a fine involved, or just make you move?

It's not illegal if you don't get caught

Yeah they can evict you from your own land apparently. California is such a pathetic state ruled by overlords who created this whole mess I'm in.

Look at resolving it from a different angle. Instead of buying additional parcels just buy two more cheap RV's. Then just rotate RV's every 120 days. [emoticon]

Or just live in the one until somebody complains.
