Robert bought the house on Leisure Lane in May in large part because it had RV hookups that Robert thought he could rent out to help pay the mortgage. Robert purchased the house for his 21-year-old son, who lived in Boise but was having trouble paying rent on his own with the skyrocketing rental prices. Robert’s son and three roommates now live in the home together and pay rent to Robert.
Robert believed he could rent out his RV hookups because the house is located on a private road and there are many other trailers and RVs in the neighborhood. Several of them are hooked up to nearby homes, with some being lived in. The previous owner of the house also had had a trailer hooked up next to the home, with a resident living in it for about five years.
