No mobile homes shall be permitted in the Village except recreational vehicles used by the homeowner on whose property they are parked.
No person shall use or park any mobile home for living or sleeping quarters within the corporate limits of the Village of the Branch, except that no more than one mobile home of a nonpaying guest of a resident of the Village may park on the property of said resident for not exceeding 72 hours in any one month, provided that it is not used for living quarters and its location complies with the setback requirements of Chapter 275, Zoning, of the Code of the Village of the Branch, and it is not less than 10 feet from any building or structure.
