When winter sets in, bring it home. If you are in the right, not much they can do.

Im in a HOA and believe it or not, I'm the president. Nobody else wants the job. Somebody wants something changed, tell them to have there trophy wife to go ask the president. Found out Silicone isn't just for caulking windows.

To the OP. Did you read the HOA documents BEFORE you bought? As a HOA board president, I can almost guarantee that people that buy into a HOA never read the rules until after signing on the dotted line. Then the whine starts.
We never saw the covenants till final signing. They didn't like that I took the time to read them before signing!

I bought and paid for my property. Now it seems I rent it from the city, county, state, and country. Even though I have a paid up deed, they can take it away when they want it. I got a notice from some city busybody about my work vehicle in the drive way. I told them to roll it up tightly and place it where the sun does not shine. I told them that when they pay my taxes, they might have some say as to what I can and can not put on my property. His face turned red. and he walked away. have not heard from him since..

The people who can afford to buy in the area where I live are not the kind of people to have cars up on blocks or hot pink houses. And there are no HOAs here. We keep both of our RVs on our property (1.02 wooded acres). No need to put up with an HOA to live nicely and actually have control over, and own, your own home. Geeze, there are even HOA's that tell people what they can plant in their yard or how many pets they can have... even how long company can stay.

Before I even considered buying this land I still live on, I asked about "rules and regulations." It's best to know what you're going to have to deal with before signing on that dotted line.

I'm the Treasurer of ours, for the same reason. I don't have to make any decisions, just keep an eye on where the money goes.

The "rule of thumb" seems to be in these situations that caveat emptor (buyer beware) is the phrase that matters. Thoroughly examine and investigate any and all restrictions that may be imposed by HOA's or by ordinances. Careful examination can save a lot of grief down the road. As to a domicile being restriction-free as it applies to RV's specifically, then by all means utilize the opportunity to park in the dooryard as long as it doesn't impede traffic, etc. Some of our motor homes cost more than some of the houses in the area.

"Ricko" made a statement about living in an area where he felt property values would be more protected by an HOA that keeps the neighborhood rules enforced and everyone's homes looking nice. He didn't make an attack on anyone's personal residence. Why do people take generic statements and turn them into something they're not.

HOA's are there to protect the homeowner. I moved to an area without them because I knew I would be storing my RV at my house. On occasion when the neighborhood had a dirtbag move in, I wished that we did have an HOA. My neighborhood is as nice as any HOA neighborhood, but I certainly didn't take offense to Ricko's statement or take it as a personal attack. Geez....lighten up!
