Oh yeah, nothing paranoid or conspiratorial here. Just a guy with a sidearm strolling about protecting you against the paranoid conspiratorialists.

The general problem is not one of paranoia on the part of citizens nor is it a conspiracy on the part of regulators. It is much worse than that.

As the paradigm shifts among the regulators and those few who empower them, a sublimated fact of human nature takes over, which is thus...
All social structures are, at their root, systems of coercion and domination. The result is pretty much always a sort of "Stockholm Syndrome" reaction from the governed.
The result is, as Orwell posited...2+2 inevitably becomes 5.
You see it or you don't , either way Poor Richard would be disappointed to discover that his ounce is useful but his pound is woefully inadequate.

When a rambling guy on youtube has to say "this is not some paranoid conspiracy" in his video, that's a good sign that it's time to keep clicking along.

The regulatory move clarifies the difference between RVs and park model type units, "manufactured homes" and the like, the result being quite the opposite of what almost everybody in the RV world is currently freaking out about.

Here is the link to the actual thing. https://www.federalregister.gov/arti...r-recreational

I'm as sensitive as anyone about infringements to liberty, but I don't see one here. Jen has it right.

Do you see where he is at? Probably don't get it do you. I always carry a single six with snake shot when I'm in rattle snake country.

Perhaps someone more skilled that me could photoshop a snake into the video. Then, of course, it should make perfect sense.

Presumably you just shoot the rattle out of their hand?

Funny, I encounter snakes with some regularity but haven't ever had to engage in a shootout with them?

And it would be more sporting if the snake were armed and could shoot back.

Technomadia touched on this on their last blog. I'll put a link below. This is "blowing up" on many RV sites. They have an interesting web site with lots of good information. Their basic take on this is that there maybe future legislation that impinges on RVers, but this is not one of them.

So will we still be able to import RVs from Canada?
How do we prove it was built to code. I asked one of the local code enforcement persons in town about it and he said they way they do it is to inspect the structure, electrical, and plumbing before the Sheetrock goes on the walls.
Do we have to strip the interior of the RV at the border and have it inspected before we can import it. Will it be a take my word for it, its built to code.

Here's the proposal:
" built and certified in accordance with either the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 1192-15 or American National Standards Institute (ANSI) A119.5-09 consensus standards for recreational vehicles."

This regulation is similar to those that require that tag on a pillow that says Do Not Remove and assures the customer that all new filling was used.
It's a sticker visible to the buyer that tells them the RV was built according to codes that are established.
You can peel it off the counter.
No need to get knickers in a knot.
