Obviously, they don't like RV's so I won't inflict them with my RV or the money I'd usually spend while parked somewhere, be it an RV park, or at a friend's house. Zoning laws and nonsense like this is something I'd very definitely take a close look at before I chose a place to live or a place to go.

When you say any residential area, I assume that means anywhere on your private property? My camper is in the side of my backyard, behind my driveway, under a carport. I've heard of local gov't restricting parking on the street... can block views, can be derelict etc... makes sense to me. HOA's restricting because they can be an eyesore... I understand the argument.

Not being able to use my own property to house my own RV? That is ridiculous! I would be very upset to learn this after purchasing an RV if I lived there and didn't know prior!

Their code sec 19-194 says this too “Recreational vehicles may be parked in accordance with the provisions of section 35-385 for the purposes of trip preparation,”

We ended up moving so we could have a house with RV parking (has to be behind your fence). Driveway parking is allowed for 48 hours for loading/unloading. We live in an HOA area. The 'behind the fence' rule does keep the streets clear. City laws prevent anyone from living full time in one, behind a fence or not. Works for us.

Thanks for the info. After reading the OP, I was wondering how UPS, utility companies, etc. would be able to operate under the restrictions.

I know the small town I live in... in Ohio..

a trailer or camper has 24 hours in driveway..... no more... and no sleeping in said trailer...
no parking of trailers at anytime on city streets.

been this way for many years..

Work type trailers, may park... from 7am to 8 pm.. for work related business.. but may not block traffic right of way.

I've lived here for 30 years and have never heard of this. Some HOA's restrict vehicles (including one area that does not allow pick up trucks). Before I got my first RV I read through all the city codes and as others have posted RVs are exempt. If you have a large box truck or trailer it does effect them. They are considered business vehicles and are not allowed to be stored in residential areas.
