Yesterday The city of San Antonio raised the fine for parking “oversized” vehicles in any residential area. Went up from $35 to $500. No parking in the street , no parking in driveway not even for trip prep. Oversized vehicle are any boat or trailer over 24’ long, over 8’ wide, or taller than 8’.

I get it about large rv ‘s parked in driveways forever but no exceptions for trip prep? Come on! Is it like that anywhere else? Has anyone had any problems with this?

Wonder if they are having a problem like Portland Oregon where they have large numbers of derelict RV's with people living in them all over the city.

Not even in the owner's driveway, on private property? I'm skeptical that is even something the city can regulate. A HOA maybe, but not the city.

Now if the owner is parking RV on his/her property and renting them out.... that's a different matter.

I park wherever I want to park, ( north Fl. Panhandle) I do not think I would want to live where I could not park my unit. No matter what size.

Thanks for the info. We were only a couple of weeks away from leaving Iowa and about to spend a few days there after heading south on the way to Arizona. With our usual luck, we would have some sort of mechanical problem and experience this added insult. No problem to spend time elsewhere and avoid the possibility. Adios, San Antonio,

Wow. I would have to give up Rving if I lived there. I park my 5th wheel in the street in frontof the house when we load up or unload. The regulations say you can park hooked up for 1 week.. We are in a older neighbourhood and do not have a HOA..however during the summer some park their trailer only for a several week between trips. We never park in the street for more than a couple of days. Jim2007..

I had my 5er in my driveway 2 weeks while I rewired my lights, fixed my water heater and waxed half of it. Also resealed where needed, reconfigured my entertainment center to fit my new 40” flat/led tv. Hope I don’t ever have to fix anything else. Can’t do it at storage yard, ant afford to pay $199 hr to get it done.
