Methods of anchoring may include, but are not to be limited to, use of over the top or frame ties to ground anchors. This requirement is in addition to applicable state or local anchoring requirements for resisting wind forces.

The recreational vehicle and all additions and accessory structures will then be treated as a new structure and shall be subject to the elevation/floodproofing requirements and the use of land restrictions specified in sections 11-12-4 and 11-12-5 of this chapter.
