Well, I certainly understand why they enacted such a law as this, but not so sure I agree with it. Hopefully, they will post great big signs at the edge of their town: "RV's NOT WELCOME! YOU WILL BE FINED IF YOU DRIVE THROUGH OUR TOWN. GO AWAY!" and spare unsuspecting visitors to their lovely town, traveling through on vacation, a thousand dollar fine!

Whats sad is Lacey has a HUGE RV park & living comunity inside the city limits. It's founded by Airstream owners, but has a park open to any brand.

The more restrictions the more money they make.

What a bunch of NUTS!! Thankfully, there are rules on this forum that won't allow me to express myself.

Let’s see.... should I read the actual text of the ordinance or watch a YouTube video interpretation about it [emoticon]

I don’t have a problem with the code, but I’m pretty sure the town had a BIG problem if they had to put such a rule in place.

Doesn't seem that different from most rules for camping in public areas.

Not many town allow you to set up camp on the public streets or in public parks.

PS:. I read the law, didn't watch the video.

He was interpreting the ordinance as not allowing someone to have a sleeping bag in their car when driving around. I don't see that at all in the ordinance. He seems to be really stretching the "storage" part.

Looks like a standard "no camping in public areas" ordinance that so many towns and cities have.

What I do completely agree with him about is the "tent city" that he was next to. I assume that town has some plan for that after passing the new ordinance.

After reading the ordinance, it seems like Fanatic could just put a sign in the windshield saying "Not Camping - Picking Up Mail" and nothing would have happened. It might be smarter to pick a parking spot that is not next to a homeless camp. Much to do about nothing. Vloggers running out of stuff to report.
