To paraphrase Groucho, any city that would have a citizen like me, I wouldn't care to live in.

In my city, Sacramento, it is against the city code to keep a trailer or RV or anything parked in your driveway over a certain number of days, but somehow or another I just get complements on my Airstream. I've never had a complaint. There are a lot of newer neighborhoods where I would get in trouble, but fortunately I don't live there.

So the owner of the trailer did his research, bought the house in a spot where this was allowed, and is complying with local ordnances, and now they are trying to change the ordnances so he will have to move it?

HOA is not a bad thing, in most cases. If this is a deed restricted home this is another thing. We did have a SOB parked in a gated RV resort, we owned the lots, the HOA dished out a lot of trouble on mostly nothing things . Has anyone lived in a condo and experienced the condo commandos. Thinking like this is beyond me......Must have been a slow news day........nice rig...classy

My brothers HOA has a similar regulation.....we parked in the street.

The "party stork" is holding the permit....

We have no such regulations in our by-laws.

If it ain't broke.....fix it 'til it is.

I think the only rules in our town are that it has to be on a hard surface (i.e., not on the grass), and apparently it can't be beyond the front of the house. Apparently that latter one was enforced at some point in another neighborhood a friend lives in, but I kept our B190 in front of our house for 5 years without a complaint. (I think people are hesitant to complain about anything I do - the house had a terrible reputation before I bought it, and apparently I'm keeping it in far better condition than previous residents did, so everyone is just glad to have us.)

We expanded the driveway alongside the house before we bought the trailer, and that's where it lives.

Fortunately, our town has far so many RV and boat owners that I think a new rule like that would quickly be shot down (there are two travel trailers on our street alone, and our street isn't very long), but at the same time I've sort of wanted to start a local group for owners of RVs in our town, just in case someone does decide getting rid of RVs and boats would be a good idea.

Yup. Exactly my feeling. HOA's are NOTHING but a bunch of busybodies. NEVER again, Never again. Ugggggggggg. Hate 'em.

And if you read some of the comments by the so called "journalist", looks like they are just trying to stir up more crap rather than reporting legitimate news stories. I refuse to watch the news any longer, it's nothing but haircuts and makeup these days. Ridiculous nonsense.

Just my two cents. YMMV.

Thumbs up


....."haircuts & make-up"

Love it....

Last nights "news"....haircut standing in the cold and snowy darkness, with nothing visible at all in the background, explaining how spectacular the fire was 6 hours ago when it was actually happening.

I love it when that happens....

The beginning of the end....when it became popular to "pair-up" at the news desk, they love to chit-chat with each other instead of actually presenting something worthwhile to the folks watching.

"Randy.... that was truly a heartwarming story"

Tell that to the nutcase standing out in the cold reporting on a fire thats been out for 6 hours.

If it ain't broke.....fix it 'til it is.

We knowingly bought in a HOA and actually love our neighborhood. We are unable to park on street, no vehicles w/ commercial markings in driveways and no rv' s of any kind in community except 24 hours to load or unload. Since the acquisition of Airstream we consider selling for a non HOA neighborhood. It sure would make it easier to work on.

Here's another article, same subject.

Airstream trailer in Prairie Village driveway causes kerfuffle among neighbors

The comments are interesting. Most people think the Airstream looks fine!

I live in a gated HOA neighborhood and I absolutely hate it. Typical Nazi style board member or two or three (varies) at all times. My son lives here also. He was getting ready to go on stage to deliver a talk to 2,000 marketers last week at a major conference when his phone rang. One of the HOA "officials" was calling him to advise that a one foot tall gnome in a corner of his yard was in violation of some sacred CC&R. Being a bit younger and more direct than me he told the "official" to eff off.

I'm allowed to bring my trailer in for 36 hours. My house is for sale and I can't wait to get out of this place. Big mistake buying here.
