This is my first post. We are relocating to Charlotte and we think we have narrowed down the search to Union and Lincoln Counties. We want to live in a neighborhood with community pool, tennis courts (we have 5 and 9 yr olds that need to make friends) - AND we have a 30 ft travel trailer that needs to sit on the driveway when we are getting ready for a camping trip - to clean put food in, etc.. We will not store it on the property - but maybe 48 hours on our driveway. So far the HOA covenants we have looked at - say only 24 hours. We can't be the only people that have an RV and need to get it ready to go. Any neighborhood suggestions?

I would suggest contacting a board member and asking how stringent they are in terms of 48 hours as opposed to 24?What can they really do? By the time a letter is sent to you its already gone.
I live in an HOA community ( although very small) and nobody has a problem with our boat in the driveway for a few days at a time.

We used to have a 30' TT as well. I found that we never needed it home for 48 hours before a trip. I'd bring it home the day before and we'd clean and pack it (including cooling down the reefer) all in that 24 hour (and sometimes longer) time span. Maybe you can shorten up your prep time if need be. I say that only to suggest a change in habits may allow you to purchase a house without dwelling on this one facet of the rules.

I'd work with the HOA board on the 48 hours request. If you're proactive and respectful about it, they may find it easy to turn their head the other way for the one extra day.

Good luck and happy RV'ing!

Our HOA was pretty lenient on that, as long as we called and let them know, we were able to have it parked in the driveway for up to a week and ours was 38 foot. we are in Indian trail

I think our HOA may say 24 hours, but unless you are storing it in the driveway, nobody cares.

Thanks for the advice! We did contact the HOA board and HOA Management before making the offer on a house and we got it all worked out. We'll be there before the end of Aug.
