I live in a subdivision at the end of a cul de sac and keep my 34' travel trailer in storage 2 miles away. My driveway is very long, 235', with plenty of room to park it while loading for a camping trip. Lately however, it's been really difficult to bring the camper home because of neighbors parking their cars in the street ( while their driveway is empty). Street parking is against our HOA rules unless you have a lot of guests over and your driveway is full of cars. I need the full cul de sac to safely turn around and back down my driveway. I have one neighbor who gladly moves for me when I need to bring camper home. However, the other 2 neighbors either aren't home, tell me no one is home with the keys to move it, or have told me "No, I'm not going to move it". Remember, their driveway is empty. What should I do here? I hate to turn folks in to HOA, but do I have any other choice since I've already tried to politely ask them first? I'm looking for input from camping folks who may understand my dilemma. Thanks.

Ain't nothing good going to come out of this.


Inconvenience to you, HOA gets involved, angry neighbors, close quarters due to cul de sac etc etc

Try parking your RV in the street. When they complain, tell them they have given you no choice. If they park in their driveways then you will too.

The only thing you can do is let the neighbors know a day or two ahead of time when you are bringing the RV home, and ask them not to park on the street at that time.
Otherwise, if you complain to the HOA,or worse yet park the RV in the street the war will begin, and everyone loses.

Where do you live that an HOA can run the streets? They are public roads and HOA's can't run them.

Many streets in HOA development are private. I live in one.

I think most if not all HOA streets/roads are private and marked as such

A plugged cul-de-sac is as bad as a plugged ...*^%$. Good Luck.
