I guess I`ll be living in my car. I`ve got a pretty sweet fucking life, I tell ya.

Glad the campers' still there.
In your shoes, I would not plan to spend another winter where you are. This guy is not honest, and it's impossible to see where things will go next. And, I would hate to spend another minute patching together that cabin.
Plus, that camper is going to age poorly while empty, even if it doesn't wander off.
I'd focus on some sort of a shed for next winter, built onto the camper.. seems to me the bare minimum to make it work would be about 6x8, just big enough for an exterior door, a door into the camper, and a woodstove.
Ideally, just a couple more feet of width would give room for a bed and a barrel of water, but even without that, getting away from the propane heat would be a cost savings, improve comfort, and improve safety.
If I got that done, I'd then try and get some sort of a windbreak setup for the camper. I'd put a roof over it, if the materials became an option.. but hopefully steel, not plastic, definitely don't want to burn it down.
Bloody covid is obviously not going to help with any of this.. rotten timing.

+1 on agreements in writing, even if it's only on the back of an envelope. People are easygoing until money is involved; then some get greedy and paranoid.
What kind of corn soldier are you? And don't say "kernel" - that's only for this tiny ad:
