Here are your rights: NONE. Your brother owns the property and was nice enough to rent it to you or let you stay there for free. Your 25-years of living vests you with no legal right whatsoever. Time to move on.
Nothing under the facts presented. It sounds like you were a permissive guest on the property. As such you are allowed there at the will of the property owner. If he wants you to leave - leave you must. You might be able to buy a little bit of time, under the notion that you are a "tenant" and have to be given proper notice, but unless you have a formal lease or some other legal right, you are not in a position to fight this effectively.

There are several questions in regards to this, but assuming you weren't attempting to claim the land by adverse possession, then he owns the land, and can sell it and force your mobile home off of it. You'd have to explain whether you were living on his land rent-free for the past 25 years, or what the contract (if there is one) says. You would likely benefit from consulting with a real estate attorney in FL to see what your options are. There's not enough here to provide further advice.
