: There is no lead paint in our trailer, I've checked as we also have two children. All the walls are wood panelling. Also in our lease it states that we or anybody else can not sue the landloards for anybody getting hurt in the trailer on or the properity.

That clause in your lease is worthless. I don't know why landlords continue to use such clauses since it provides no protection and it tends to piss off judges. A tenant cannot sign away his/her rights under the law. You always have the right to sue.

But why don't you just ask them what their objection is. They may have a valid objection and you may be able to work it out. If there is no valid issue and there is no provision in the lease/rental agreement prohibiting it, you can continue, until the lease/rental agreement is renewed/changed.
