Inside the city limits of Lancaster, Ca. you mat NOT leave a trailer unhooked from the tow vehicle on the street. You may NOT park your boat, trailer of anytype, or motorhome beside your house unless....you have a PERMITTED concrete driveway added to park on.

No grass or dirt or gravel parking allowed.

Good thing about the concrete is, when the professional installs it for the intended purpose of parking a heavy RV, it won't sink.

From lots of experience, I can say this: parking ANY heavy wheeled vehicle on grass or dirt or gravel that will allow water to penetrate into it will cause sinking.

Best thing to do is do the work necessary to keep as much water out of the area. This means sprinkler water, AND incedental run off that flows there.

And guess what happened to my PCV sprinkler pipes one time !

I like these little facey things.

I've had to park my F250 pick-up in the grass for several years. The biggest problem for me was moisture caused a lot of rust. I now have a gravel area laid over heavy plastic and the moisture is very much reduced. Since I only needed my truck once or twice a month making a muddy trail down the street was one problem for me. I like the plywood idea and I would add heavy plastic under the plywood to keep the plastic in place. Yes it will kill the grass, but grass seed is a lot less expensive than fixing rust problems. Critters getting inside is a problem no matter where we park our toys.
