Our driveway is too short for our TT so we pay $50/month for storage at an old Nike missile site about 18 miles from the house. The place is pretty remote and has a guy living there so it's pretty secure. I winterize at the lot but get a full hookup site to dewinterize at the CG for our first outing. Loading the TT in front of the house by myself is a bit of a pain but I can do it in less than an hour now.

From the day I took delivery of my TT in 02/2000 until I moved it to our Home Base in 11/2014, I kept it in some kind of storage facility. After I moved it, I did ran a Quicken report of how much I paid over all those years to simply park the TT somewhere. I was shocked to learn that I had paid over $6,000.00.

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.
If you buy a piece of property governed by an HOA, it is your responsibility to know all the rules. No court will force an HOA to change its rules, unless it discriminates ownership based on race, creed, color, etc. Even if you claim you didn't know ignorance is no excuse. Some HOAs even prohibit parking your car in the driveway. While that seems unconstitutional, it is legal. You can fight it all you want, but is a rule made by an HOA. An HOA is recognized in court as a legal governing body within a community of homeowners - ruled by the majority, just like a city, town, or village.

Not trying to be argumentative, but don't want folks to think they can impose their will on the majority of people in their HOA just by throwing a lot of money at it. It won't work.

When the DW and I were looking for a suitable lot to build our Home Base, many potential candidates got nixed immediately because they had covenants or HOA rules. I refused to buy any property with such limitations. Needless to say, it took four years of looking before we found the lot we purchased.

An additional comment to this is that part of moving into an HOA setting is that you sign an agreement to those rules. This is one of the reasons that it's hard to fight these in court. You effectively gave up certain rights for the "good" of the neighborhood. If you want the rules changed you have to follow the governing entity's process for getting the rules changed.

I agree. Our HOA is very clear about their rules. They even make it a point to send you the rules & regs. every so often. It's a good thing though. Keeps people from painting their front door pink with yellow polkadots and wierd crap like that.

HOAs can do good things like making sure folks don't use their front yard to sell cars. They can go overboard too. For instance, we received a letter from our HOA because we put our trash can out on a Monday (Tuesday is trash day) before 5 pm. We actually put the can out at 1 pm just before we left for a week-long trip. Had our daughter come at noon on Tuesday to put the trash can back. After explaining all this to the lady who manages our HOA, she apologized for the letter and said she'd remove the "violation" from our records. I've lived in this neighborhood for 33 years. Sometimes, it's just plain nuts.

Ouch, so glad I got a flat 3 acres for many a storage spot. So sad people cannot have their equipment close by.

Something I didn't know...

HOA's can foreclose on your property if you're behind in paying them.

Really? I thought they could get a judgement and file lean, but not foreclose. Those would be some pretty substantial HOA dues if they could foreclose.
