Having escaped an HOA in CA years ago with the GEICO commercial "Sylvia" as the self-appointed HOA protector, that commercial still makes my blood pressure spike. My ending to that commercial has me yanking her chain saw out of her hands, putting the cut off mailbox over her head and kicking her butt to the curb.

"Trespassing, destruction of private property, assault with a deadly weapon, felony menacing, harassment, and anything else I could think of. Have a nice day, Sylvia!"

You do realize it isn't a documentary? Not only do HOA members not cut down mailboxes and planters, Geckos do not talk and there is no such thing as a "Motaur" half motorcycle - half man. Never has there been an office where a camel walks around saying "What day is it?" every Wednesday. You would be wise to never, ever believe anything you see on TV unless you can verify it on the internet. That's the best way because you are not allowed to put anything on the internet that isn't true. It's a law, you can look it up on the internet.

I fought my city when they went from allowing rvs, boats, etc if not visible from the street and needing a permit to prove it, to not allowed at all. I had an exemption from the original because I had a Class B and the building dept head said he would treat it like a conversion van. When the new ordinance went into effect I was given notice to remove my "offensive" vehicle within 10 days.

It took 2 years of attending every council session, filing a county law suit vs my city, getting involved in politics and getting 3 new council members elected, and I finally settled on a variance. That means I can keep my rv there forever, but cannot replace it.

I wanted to take this to my state's supreme court, but did not want to spend so much money. None of the 100 permit owners effected would help. Ohio had a lawsuit go to their supreme court and rv's are allowed in the driveway. I wish more states would have suits forcing that and the rv mfrs should help fund them.

A few years ago, Good Sam published a parking rights handbook to assist RV owners in working with their HOA and community establish or modify rules that were more equitable.

The handbook may be found here.

Part of being a Good Sam member is to work with your local chapter to work with the HOA or community. Behind the local chapter is the national Good Sam members who know the "rights and privileges."

Of course, there may be resistance, but with every noble cause, working within the system and patience goes a long way.

Hope this helps.
