as in many cases in life , it's impossible to know everything. This is especially true when you get into a new field, like we did with trailers. hind sight is 20-20!

We live in a small village in Central Illinois. There are RV rules that prevent us from having our 36' Classic at home. We are fortunate to have indoor storage less than a mile from the house, so really no big deal. We also have a city ordinance which prohibits parking in the same spot on the street for over 24 hours. AND we have a vengeful, hateful neighbor. I've explained to our poor police department more than once that it is only out there because of preparing for or cleaning up after a trip. They know it runs and has it's own storage. They also told me they don't enforce the ordinance unless someone calls and complains. All I have to do legally is move it every 24 hours. Last time I asked who called, the officer smirked and said he couldn't reveal their identity. But he did suggest that I park it in front of a specific house when I move it. Love our police department!

I agree with interblog.

While I appreciate your situation, zoning and land use codes are there for many reasons and this is just one of them. They provide consistency and clarity so everyone knows where they stand.

Even though it sounds like the jurisdiction has signed off, I would suggest reading the ordnance so you know exactly what the requirements or limitations are. I’m sure the city (? Local jurisdiction) has the code on-line but it is often hard to sort thru the subparts and citations and I’m sure they have it at hand, often in their vehicles for reference.

Secondly I would suggest you review the CC & R's which were recorded when the land was originally developed/subdivided. You don't need a HOA to have CC & R's. I presume Canada is similar to USA in this respect. There may be restrictions there that someone could attempt to enforce. The City has no jurisdiction nor knowledge re the CC & R’s. That’s a civil manner.

Congrats on the ruling.

That's unfortunate. We used to have an Airstream owning neighbor down the street from us, but I think they moved

They're part of the reason we're chasing the Airstream dream!
