Hi! I'm Heather. I've been a practicing attorney for the last 15 years, and I'd be happy to assist you for informational and educational purposes.
This is an interesting situation. The answer would depend on the manager's basis for not allowing you to rent the room. Is that coming from a contract you have signed with him or covenants that are recorded against the property, and what do the provisions state exactly?
You would have to read those to be able to determine the answer.
But one creative way to do this would be to sell the mobile home to a business entity that you set up with the state. Then you could sell "shares" (read: rooms) of the business to people that you want to "rent" to and the bylaws of the business would have to talk about owners of shares have to pay a certain amount into the business. It's a creative solution, for sure.
