Never heard of one. Sounds like a strata committee but since I own my own property I have have no interest in listening to some association. How do they have any power?

It's not about owning your property, I own my property too. An HOA is a legal entity with authority to compel you to abide by the rules that you agreed to when you purchased the property. It's not like you didn't know about them when you moved in. Many people hate them because they force you to do things like mow your lawn (Gasp!!!) or not store rusting hulks or toilets in your front yard (BLASPHEMY!!), or not paint your entire house flamingo pink (INSANITY I TELL YOU!). Some HOAs are managed by management companies, and those I would imagine are the ones that are complained about the loudest because the management company doesn't care who you are, their job is to enforce the covenants, and they will do so with an iron fist in some cases.

Some of them are pretty ridiculous in their requirements of homeowners, but again the rules are not a surprise. In our case (and many others), they are there to keep our neighborhood looking the way WE want it to look. I for one appreciate it because I worked WAY too hard for the money to buy my house to just let some entitled neighbor ruin my home by doing something monumentally stupid just because "they own that property and can do whatever they want to it".

Yes, there are rules, and homeowners are informed of them and agree to them before they sign on the line; if they want to live without rules, that's fine, there is plenty of acreage for sale in unincorporated areas of the county, go for it!

Camperbob, no offense, but I sense you might be - Well, let's get back on topic.

Agreed, that whole little tangent was WAY off topic. Point was that not all HOAs are bad and they serve a valid purpose.

Even more on point: If you can't currently store your RV at your house but you would like to, try to get the restrictions changed. That's what I'm going to do.

Out in the back yard in the Hot Georgia sun with electric and water. Maybe one day get a pole barn over it.

I didn't agree to any rules when I bought other then the normal bylaws that the city has. Those bylaws cover all the needed common sense basics.

Anything more and it's just people trying to force their views on others.

And sorry for getting off topic.

Ours is on the side of the house. My next door neighbor has a Airstream Land Yacht parked on the side of theirs, and their daughter has a small egg-shaped trailer behind it. No HOA as you can imagine.

My friend has a camper on the side of his house that has an HOA, and the way he says he got around it was to have an exception built in by the builder before the houses are complete. Not sure exactly how that works and I don't have any plans to move, but maybe it helps.
