Lakewood will allow RV use for 2 weeks only.
Denver will not allow it at all.
Englewood gave me a phone number.
Rest assured, we will not build until we know what and where we are going to live. But methinks we should figure out variances..

Meanwhile, This Tiny House blog gives some advice:
However, there are ways to get around this.

Move out of the city. Many rural areas are unregulated in this way.
Negotiate. Talk with your local building officials or neighborhood associations. They might be convinced that a small house is non-threatening.
Accessorize. Small dwellings are sometimes allowed to be built adjacent to a house, such as a “granny flat.”
Don’t hook up. If a structure is not permanently attached and not hooked up to public utilities, it may not be considered relevant to housing codes.
Apply pressure. Point out the immense housing problem and give an out for your local politicians to save the day.
