A. Overview of Information Collection
Title of Information Collection: Manufactured Home Construction and Safety Standards Act Park Model RV Exemption Notice.
OMB Approval Number: 2502-0616.
OMB Expiration Date: May 31, 2020.
Type of Request: Extension of a currently approved collection.
Form Number: None.
Description of the need for the information and proposed use: For recreational vehicles that are exempt from HUD regulation as manufactured homes, HUD requires certification with either the American National Standards Institute's (ANSI) standard for Park Model Recreational Vehicles (PMRV), A119.5-15 or the National Fire Protection Association's NFPA 1192, Standard on Recreational Vehicles, 2015 Edition. PMRVs built to ANSI A119.5-15 may exceed the RV exemption's 400 square foot threshold, a manufacturer must post notice in the home that the structure is only designed for recreational purposes and is not designed as a primary residence or for permanent occupancy.
The Recreation Vehicle Industry Association's (RVIA) current seal does not satisfy HUD's standard for the manufacturer's notice. HUD requirements provide specifics regarding the content and prominence of the notice and which requires the notice to be prominently displayed in the unit and delivered to the consumer before the sale transaction is complete, regardless of whether the transaction occurs online or in-person. PMRV manufacturers will satisfy this requirement with two printed sheets of paper per PMRV: One in the kitchen, and one delivered to the consumer before the transaction.
Respondents (i.e., affected public): Business or other for-profit.
Estimated Number of Respondents: 22.
Estimated Number of Responses: 4,000 per annum.
Frequency of Response: Approx. 181.
Average Hours per Response: 20 seconds.
Total Estimated Burden: 22 hours.
