As for the whole 'I love HOA's' and 'I hate HOA's' debate, HOA's DO have their place, and in the vast majority of cases, homeowners realize the upside when they sell their homes. As a Realtor, the only way I would not embrace the benefits of a well-run HOA is if I decided I wanted to live in the middle of 10 acres, preferably with not a neighbor in sight. However, in a development as such, I would almost always view the HOA as a definite plus. When it comes time for me to sell, I don't want the 6 cars in my neighbors front yard, the 12" tall grass, the refrigerator on the front porch, or his dilapidated storage shed to have a bearing on the value of my home.

"You signed the HOA agreement. You live by it's rules."

x2. Let me guess, you didn't read slowly and carefully the HOA rules before you purchased?

People who bought homes in HOA neighborhoods have no excuse to complain about the HOA rules. The rules were in effect when would bought your home and you signed paperwork acknowledging HOA rules. If you don't like the rules then move.

Many years ago wife and I were looking at a new housing development with homes on 2.5 acres. We were ready to buy. Then I started reading their copy of the HOA rules and got out of there quick as we could.

HOAs are the reason I've never bought where there was an HOA.

One reasonable answer...where does the sewage go?

If this goes on for even 2 weeks and he's using the on board facilities...he will likely need to dump at least a couple times. And since he's borrowing the unit, he likely isn't well adapted to minimizing water usage.

That said, I'll give 10-1 odds there is more to the story.

Not all HOAs are like this. A neighbor lent his Montana 5th wheel (which is 36' long) to a nurse for this very reason. Her HOA normally doesn't allow RVs to be parked at the home, but in this case, they had no problem with it being parked in front of her house until this all blows over. He is also paying to have the tanks pumped by a honeywagon when the time comes so she doesn't have to worry about it.

As others have mentioned, HOAs are ran by a board. If you don't like the decisions the Board is making, then show up to the meetings to express your opinion, and also vote when elections come up. I was on my own HOA board for 2 years, and I found it interesting that the biggest complainers to the management company were the people who never showed up to meetings or elections. When I was on the board, for the most part, my own feelings were not important, if the majority my neighbors wanted a rule changed or something like that, then it happened. I agreed with them most of the time. We actually made the neighborhood MORE RV friendly during my time. But we also have acre+ lots. I can see why more typical neighborhoods and townhome communities would not want people parking RVs at home.

Also as a side note, there is a whole Facebook group dedicated to people who want to help First Responders and Medical Professionals like this with their RVs. Called RVs for MDs.

If you want to make up a "STORY" let's get it a little more closely to REALITY. My wife and I can easily go two weeks on the Black tank, that's being in quarantine. The person can easily take their showers at the Hospital if they want to.

ORRRR Got forbid let the grey tank drain in the lawn each day so there is no oder!

So the person is wanting to do something that certainly is not what they WANT to do but believe is the best interest of the family.

A little common sense would go a long way here!

The below works WELL.

Just one of the so mamy reasons we would NEVER live in an HOA controlled area! Not even if the home was given free to us but we had to live in it.

Unfortunately an HOA doesn’t guarantee any of this. I live in a development with no HOA. There is absolutely nothing like what you described around here.

My brother lived in an area very similar to mine, but with an HOA. He had to get permission to plant rose bushes and paint his front door. When he had to replace his roof, it had to be one of two shingles.

Yet his neighbor had the fridge on her back deck and was accumulating garbage on the deck. He complained, but the HOA said they couldn’t do anything about it.

I am one of the HOA haters.

Illegal, unsanitary, hurts wildlife...
