Have been looking for a home to rent and have noticed that there are no homes with rv parking. Is it against HOA rules? And do all neighborhoods have HOA's? I am defintely not against HOA's, expecially if it keeps a neighboorhood looking nice. Just wondering what everyone does with their boats and RV's. Here in Calif. we have our's in storage, but it cost a small fortune, and was hoping with a bigger lot, we could put it somewhere unseen.

Not all neighborhoods here have HOA's. The newer ones mostly do have HOAs.

Have you called any storage facilities to see how much they charge? It might be a lot cheaper than it is in CA. Also, I'm pretty sure if you live somewhere really rural, you can park your RV there with no problems.

Thanks for your response! I really didn't want to live anywhere too rural. I was just curious. After spending weeks looking on zillow and google, I haven't seen one single home with any kind of rv or boat on it's property. I'm assuming it's pretty strict in SA about that. We're looking for a rental home in the 1600 - 1800. range, in a decent neighborhood. We're older, so someplace with walking trails. I was curious what everyone did with their boats, with all the lakes around, I'm assuming a lot of people have them.

My grandparents kept their travel trailer on their property (they lived in an older neighborhood in the Southside). It was kept in a garage my grandfather built. Their boat, however, was stored , docked, on Canyon Lake. No idea about the prices though.

For non-HOA neighborhoods, the basic city codes for RV/trailer parking are:

-No Street parking
- Driveway parking has some restrictions, it can not be within 15 feet of the street or sidewalk. So if you have a short driveway or long RV you are out of luck.

Be a good neighbor and put it in storage. If you can afford and RV and the gas they drink you can afford storage in TX.

Welcome to San Antonio!!!!! Unless you live in a rural area, your best bet is to store it. Most HOA's won't allow them parked in the driveway. There are some older neighborhoods who do not have an HOA so you could be ok in those neighborhoods but your neighbors may complain. Best bet, store it. I'm sure the fees aren't near as high as Cali's. Good Luck!!!

Vehicle break-ins are so common in San Antonio that I think it would be risky to store an RV in the driveway. You don't want some hooligan breaking windows or locks to gain access and rifling through your belongings.

Your best bet would be an older neighborhood. Newer neighborhoods seem to have much smaller lots and wouldn't have much space for an RV's in the first place.

My neighbors have boats and RV's, but they keep them all in storage. It's not very expensive and like Bo pointed out, its more secure than leaving them in your driveway or yard.
