We live in a subdivision. There was not any HOA in place when we built this house. Our TT is parked in our backyard on a concrete pad I installed. We fenced in the backyard 10 yrs ago with a 10' gate for the TT. Have never had any complaints. In the future if someone decides they want to establish an HOA, they better be prepared for battle because I won't let someone else dictate what I can and cannot park on my property. I would have never built a home here if there was an HOA in place.

If you happen to be in an area where there are farms, that may be a less pricey alternative to parking. Our neighbor across the street has 28 acres and there are two 5th's parked there in his field at different times of the year. Also a trailer with two wave runners on it is there sometimes. I don't think he charges much for the storage, and is accessible 24/7. Ours is parked in our driveway. So far, no complaints from the cows on either side of our property!

If an HOA does get formed, most folks there have grandfather clauses, so your trailer could stay. (You'd want to make sure that language is in the agreement.) You are probably paying a little extra on your property taxes, as that concrete slab is an "improvement" that is taxable. But that grandfather clause usually doesn't extend to any potential future owners. However, you could advertise it as a "patio!"

I've been looking for something like this for a while but so far, no good options have come up but I'll keep looking. It bites having to pay so much for secure storage in these parts. One place not far from here charges $360 a month for an enclosed 14'x40' space. I thought that was insane.

we have a 24 hour limit for having an RV on our residential streets - for loading / unloading only, otherwise off to the storage lot


and I have been " red tagged" by the code enforcement officer before

(One such instance didn't allow anyone to put a flagpole in their front yards or to put a fence in the front.)

I used to have a real estate license and this is just one thing a good realtor should make buyers aware of.
Not necessarily...just because the HOA has a rule against it doesn't mean the rule would stand up in court. The question is do you want to pay to fight it?

Great example would be the miniature satellite dishes...as I understand it, many HOA's banned them originally. But the courts ruled they couldn't ban them.

I have a hard time believing that a HOA rule the bans temporary storage for a limited amount of time to load / unload would stand up. But IANAL.

I can store my trailer next to my house, and I do. In fact, it's a side-by-side and my dad's trailer is in front of mine. They are on a well kept gravel pad. It's one of the reasons I like living where I do.

That said, I have no issue with so-called "beautification ordinances". We have one in my city. It was started because people parked semis, 5vers, and everything else in their driveways, or on the side of their homes with weeds growing around them, or on thier front lawns. That said, many people abused the privileged. The beautification ordinance they passed doesn't ban trailer storage, it moves them off of the front lawns, driveways, and streets to the sides of homes or in back yards with the stipulation that they must be kept neat if visible from the road. A very reasonable application of the law.

There are two sides to this. You can call laws like this threatening our freedom, but the flip side is that exercising a right doesn't make it right. As an RV owner I respect the rights of others to expect a clean and neat looking neighborhood as well as enjoying my right to store it on my property. I don't want to look at my neighbor's RV on the street any more than they want to look at mine.

I could easily park my TT at my house, but prefer not to. I don't like to look at it on a regular basis, as such I also don't like to look at others stored out in plain sight. Maybe I'm an odd RV owner, but that is just how I feel.

We pay $50 for a secure lot with 24hr onsite manager. I just prefer it that way.

Our HOA specifies that RVs, boats, project cars and the like must be parked behind the leading edge of the house and behind a good neighbor fence. If it was permitted that these items, including project cars, could be parked indefinately in the driveway or front yard I would not live in the neighborhood. Since living on acreage wasn't an option for us, we seeked out neighborhood with a strong HOA and CC&Rs. Our previous neighborhood wasn't this way and it just didn't maintain an aesthetic we wanted. I guess that is why there are choices so everyone can find what they would like.

HOA rules, short driveway, close neighbors all mean I store mine at m parents house in the country. It sits in their field. I am over there all the time anyway and someone is almost always home there so I don't worry much.
