RULES & REGULATIONS FOR RV SECTION
OF SUNSHINE RV RESORT 2022/2023
This document establishes a uniform system of rules and regulations for the RV section of SUNSHINE RV
RESORT. In establishing these rules and regulations, Sunshine RV Resort desires to preserve the values and
amenities of this community and to establish a system whereby, despite close living conditions, all within the Park
may enjoy their lot and the amenities in a peaceful and responsible manner. The management has taken all
reasonable means to insure that your residency here will be safe, pleasant and enjoyable. Many of the following
Rules and Regulations are required by law, and other Rules and Regulations are for your safety, health, and welfare,
as well as for the protection of the property rights of the Landlord. Consideration and courtesy to others, together
with your cooperation in maintaining your unit, will help sustain the standards of Sunshine RV Resort.
1. Rents are payable in advance, due on the first day of the month. All rents must be paid within the first five
days of each month and any rent payment due shall be delinquent after the fifth day of the month, giving cause
for late fees and/or eviction. All rents are to be paid at the park office. The Park Office is open for business as
posted. Permanent Sites are rented from October 1st to September 30th
. Electric meters must be read between the
25th and the 1st of each month. Tenants are responsible for reading their own meter. Sunshine RV Resort does not
make a profit off of the electric charge. No “borrowing” of electric from another lot. Based on your meter
reading, electric will be added to each month’s rent. No one under 21 can rent in the RV section full time. The
mobile home section is a 55+ community and is ruled by Statute 723 of FL law.
2. You must have a current registration tag displayed on your RV/unit. All units that remain all year must be
anchored and skirted. No unit is to be anchored until spotted by Management. (This also includes sheds and
3. No exposed storage of any kind, on any site, and lots must be kept clean. All tools, mowers, ladders, cement
blocks, storage boxes and similar items shall be stored in the unit or an approved shed. No storage of combustible
materials underneath units will be allowed.
4. Street Address Numbers must be displayed on every unit that is here long term, as required by law. The office
must be notified if your unit is for sale. If your unit is for sale, and you aren’t going to be able to show your unit to
potential buyers, designate a person whom you trust, to show your unit in your absence. The individual that you
choose to show your unit will need their phone number also posted on the “For Sale” sign & have an additional key
(or you can put a lock box on your door) in order to show your unit. Sunshine RV personnel cannot show any
units and cannot give out keys to potential buyers, unless approved by homeowner. No signs shall be displayed
on the property including and not limited to , “For Rent”, “For Hire”, “ Help Wanted”, political signs and no signs
offering to perform any service or to sell any product shall be displayed in the Park.
5. Sheds, steps, porches, canopies, other exterior accessories and changes must be approved by the
management as to size, material, location, and construction before installation. All work must be performed by
a Park approved, state licensed and insured contractor and in accordance to state and local codes, regulations and
law. Exterior additions, and any paint color selections, along with paint color chips submitted, must also have
management written approval on file prior to construction or painting. No such approval shall be considered unless
a written request and /or a drawing has been submitted to management and has been marked “approved” by the
manager or Park owner and has been initialed by him/her. A copy of any Permit must be in your file before work
is started. If exterior painting or any construction is done without prior written approval on file, you may be
asked to eliminate the changes. The foregoing shall not be deemed an exclusive listing of maintenance
requirements, but, rather, an illustration of the general requirements that homes and lots be safely maintained in an
attractive and well-kept manner.
6. All lots shall be properly maintained by Resident at all times. Residents who leave the park for the summer
or vacation will be held responsible for the condition of their unit while they are gone. This shall include an
obligation to keep the exterior of all living units in a clean and mildew free condition, to properly care for roofs,
gutters, downspouts and exterior building surfaces or other exterior improvements clean and neat in appearance. In
the event Resident shall fail to maintain the exterior of his lot or living unit in accordance with the above, then after
5 days notice to the tenant residing in the Park, or 10 days written notice of Tenant residing outside the Park, the
Park Owner shall have the ability to come upon the leased premises and perform such maintenance as is required.
The Park Owner shall then charge the tenant with the cost of said maintenance which shall be based upon the rate
for man hours and equipment posted in the Park Office at the time of rendering service. For the purpose of
performing the exterior maintenance authorized by this rule, the Park Owner shall have the right to enter upon any
lot or exterior, at any living unit, at any reasonable time provided for the purpose of inspection. The park owner
shall not thereby be deemed guilty of trespassing for such entry. The park owner shall not, in the performance of
these functions, unreasonably interfere with the mobile home owner’s quiet enjoyment of the lot and the park owner
shall not thereby be deemed guilty of trespassing for such entry
7. Automobiles must be parked off the roadway, on your site only. No more than 2 vehicles on each site if
space permits. After dark, lights are required on all moving vehicles, including golf carts, scooters, and bicycles.
Repairing of motor vehicles in the Park is prohibited except for minor repairs such as tire changing, battery
replacement, fan belt or water hose replacement, with completion of repairs within 2 consecutive days. Only
licensed motor vehicles shall be permitted on the Park premises. Motor Vehicles not in working condition must be
towed and unlicensed or inoperable vehicles will not be permitted to remain in the Park. By giving a 24-hour notice,
the Management of the Park reserves the right to tow any vehicles in violation of this section, at the expense of the
tenant, or owner of the vehicle, who has permitted the vehicle or item to remain on the premises. If you are leaving
your vehicle here over the summer while you are gone, it must be left on pavement. It cannot be left in the grass.
8. The speed limit in the park is 10 miles per hour and this limit should be observed by all modes of
transportation; vehicles, bikes, motorcycles, golf carts, RVs, etc. When children are known to be in the park, take
extra precaution. Our streets are also walkways. All residents are responsible to see that this speed limit is upheld
on Park property, both by themselves and their guests! Motorized vehicles, golf carts and scooters, etc. must be
driven by licensed drivers only.
9. No trucks, RVs, or commercial vehicles will be allowed on lots or in driveways except commercial vehicles
making deliveries or service calls for appliance or other repairs. The Park Owner shall have the power to waive this
provision, where in his absolute discretion, he deems it appropriate. All long term residents are required to obtain a
Park Sticker for their motor vehicles, golf carts, boat trailers, storage trailers, RVs, etc., to be affixed to the driver
side windshield of your vehicles and to the bumper or tongue of trailers. Proof of insurance covering golf carts must
be on file at the office. All extra vehicles, trucks, trailers, RVs or boat trailers must be reported to the office, have a
Park sticker affixed to its bumper or tongue, and parked in the area designated for that purpose. If a car, truck, RV,
boat trailer, storage trailer, etc., does not have a Park sticker, management will assume this does not belong to any
resident of the park and it may be towed.
As far as you parking your boat, trailer, or extra items on your site, this is considered a convenience for you. It is
dependent upon; (a.) No damage to the lot, (b.) Having enough room and not affecting any neighbors’ lot in any
way, (c.) Not creating a safety or health issue by health department regulations. Storage fees in the RV Section of
the Park, for trailers, boats, or additional vehicles/items, do not depend upon the location of the storage. Storing
items on your lot does not relieve you of the additional storage fees. This rule is necessary in order to maintain a
clean and uncluttered and well-kept Park for everyone. Management’s decision is final on the right to park boats or
other items on your sites or to have item parked in designated storage area. Please see office for storage
assignment. Any boats left behind for the summer must be under a covered patio or tied down on pavement
on your lot, or in the storage area and storage fees will apply for either place.
10. All overnight guests must sign in and register with the office at time of arrival. If after office hours, please
register in the office at the first opportunity during office hours. All guests shall comply with all rules and
regulations of the Park. The Host Resident shall be responsible for any breach of the Rules and Regulations by a
guest. Additionally, the Host Resident shall be responsible for any and all damages caused by his guest and any fees
accrued during his guest’s stay at the Park. Each guest is allowed to stay, for no more than, a total of two weeks (14
days) in a 12 month period. All guests, over 2 persons on a site, shall be additionally charged at the rate of Five
Dollars ($5.00) per day, per person, after the first two weeks. This also includes children. If guest stay more than
2 weeks, after this first two week period, they will be considered an incoming, prospective residents & will be
subject to the Park enrollment & approval process. The Host Resident will need to be present at all times with a
guest when they are visiting any of the Park facilities/amenities and functions. No matter how many Host Residents
a guest may know, there will still be only 14 days or incidents, total, allowed within a 12 month period per
individual guest. (or a total of 28 days max 14 days unpaid and 14 days paid per person visiting including children)
RVs or units are not to be loaned, rented, or used by anyone for any purpose, other than the owner in the original
application and owner will be present at time of guests’ visit.

12. The Park reserves a right-of-way (five feet wide) strip bordering all streets on which nothing may be planted,
placed or built. Tenants will be allowed to plant trees and shrubs if tenant is willing to be responsible for and to
maintain such plantings. Please check with management as to placement and type. It is imperative to have a
minimum of 5 foot clearance (when item will be fully grown) all around and away from a unit in order for our
mowers to get through. Once planted, all outdoor landscaping, improvements and plantings made by tenants
become the property of the Park whereas, upon termination or leaving the Park, no landscaping improvements, or
plantings shall be removed and shall remain on the lot site. Residents are NOT permitted to remove or cut down
ANY tree on Park property. If trees or shrubs die, however, with prior approval from Park management, it is the
responsibility of the resident to remove them. Any and all stepping stones need to be flat with the surface of the
ground so there will be no damage to mowers when they pass over. No fencing of any kind is allowed. Please help
to keep all areas neat and clean.

public areas or buildings. Feeding or watering of stray animals is strictly prohibited. Repeated violations of any of
the above could result in loss of pet privileges.
14. The Club House facility is maintained for the benefit of all residents. Resident access to this building shall not
be denied by Management unless the property is abused or not kept clean after its use by individuals or committees.
