You have to watch for CO and humidity buildup.

When you say "mobile" and "trailer" can you specify what you mean? It makes a big difference.
I love the idea of tucking a trailer on wheels inside a greenhouse because of the milder, windbreak-protected envelope in winter. However, ventilation and CO/CO2 come into it, and possibly fire safety as well. A greenhouse will be a very hot place in summer (that's the idea, right?). Not great as sleeping quarters.
I would also start asking questions of the municipalities you are looking at. Out this way, some are being impossible about allowing permanent structures without a house. I think it boils down to a revenue thing -- a house on an acreage is heavily taxed, vs. outbuildings that are not. So watch your back on that.
