I don’t know if any states that make this kind of living illegal.
Most of your more restrictive codes are from local authorities.
Their main course is not of safety but of tax revenue. (More square footage more taxes)
That and people with big houses crying to local gov’t because these more economical houses somehow lower their property value.

I made a barter-deal with a friend of a friend, to do some welding on a Gooseneck Trailer in exchange for a homemade trailer. The man wanted to use the Gooseneck Trailer to haul around heavy equipment, but did not know the used trailer he bought was from an old RV until he registered it. He did note it was far too weak to haul around equipment, so he wanted me to beef it up. Yesterday I started on it.
I am putting 4 X 4 x 3/8 angle iron in the Gooseneck to stiffen it up, but there is nothing to work with. The tubing the trailer is made out of is just tin, and the welds are all down-beaded, and just tacked together. There is no full welds on anything. What I am doing will help, and it has taken a lot of the twist out of the frame, but I am going to suggest to the guy that he sells the trailer as soon as he can, and buy one that better fits his needs. There is just nothing in which to work with. I can make it better, but it will never be right.
