What is the minimum number of tie-down straps for a park model trailer in Florida?

Saturday, June 8, 2019

Florida Administrative Code 15C-1.0102(1) - Installation Standards for Mobile/Manufactured Homes and Park Trailers states that the set-up of park model trailer should be in compliance with manufacturer’s instructions, but have a minimum of three vertical tie-down straps and three frame tie-down straps on each side.

(1) Installation standards for the set-up of new or used manufactured homes and park trailers shall be in compliance with the manufacturer’s installation instructions unless otherwise specified in this rule. In the absence of the manufacturer’s installation instructions, used mobile/manufactured homes and park trailers shall comply with the provisions of this rule. The park trailer manufacturer shall make built-in provisions for a minimum of three (3) vertical tie-down straps and three (3) frame tie-down straps on each side of the unit. All used park trailers shall have at least three (3) vertical and three (3) frame tie-down straps installed. 
Exception: The center vertical tie-down strap on used units may be exempt when it is structurally prohibitive to install.
