I decided a long time ago that one of the worst mistakes someone can make is to buy a piece of property governed by a HOA. It stands for "Horrible Owners Anonymous". They seem to be able to twist the covenants and regulations on the fly to ban anything that any of the HOA board members don't like. Of course, if you are one of those busybodies who is always more concerned with what others do than what you do yourself, it is perfect.
I have more than trucks and trailers to worry about. I have a amateur radio license. If I wish to pursue that hobby to its fullest, I have to read every single letter of city and county regulations, plus any covenants in effect for the property. The FCC has passed regulations that restrict how much local governments can restrict amateur radio antennas, but it doesn't apply to HOAs. I guess they figure if you move there, you get what's coming to you.
In any case, I Believe that before buying any piece of property for any purpose, a person should take whatever time and effort it requires to determine any and all restrictions that are placed on its use. Also think of anything
you might possibly want to do in the future.
That concludes this day's sermon.
Please stay tuned to see what inspires* me next.
