My sister asked if I would consider breaking off a piece of property for her son and family. I got to thinking about it and thought why not let them have the whole place with the stipulation to be able to park my trailer here as I need.

I figure to go on the road quite a bit and spend time with my children spread across the country and spend some time riding with other TW folks across the nation. Still having a place to root at times seems like a good idea. Best part is we all get along great.

Now to downsize. A lot of toys, tractors and rolling stock. The shop stuff I will just leave as he likes to do woodworking and I know I would use it from time to time myself. So, anyone want a cruiser or tw I have a 1500 kawaski and a 94 and 03 TW I will let go of for starters. Anyone interested, send me a pm. Need a tractor?

Plumb; you are being kind to think of that for them. You may have mentioned in the past that your sister lives with you already.

When I was younger; I had a couple of different relatives that sold their homes and traveled with trailers/5th wheels.
That worked for awhile and then got old. So they would just end up living in their trailer in a trailer park full time.
Then that got old, and they would have to buy another home - or rent.

Having heard judges tell people it is more important when family is involved to make sure everything is written out and properly documented - and watched things go badly in court hearings that tear families apart; might it be better to keep the property as is. You could still let them stay in the house - and stay in your trailer when you come home.

Hopefully nothing bad would ever happen between you and/or your family members. But if it did, and the property was in their name; you could be left out in the cold with no say, in a courtroom setting.
The land could be sold by a party or the court; with you getting zip. You could always leave it to them in case something happens to you. Would just hate to see that happen to someone who is trying to be caring to others.

Best advice is this:
