I really need to coach accessible to use every couple of days so I don't want to put it in a storage lot. I'll do the research to see if I can legally park it in my driveway but I really don't want to be that annoying neighbor that everyone complains about.
The short answer is no, you will not be able to park it your driveway, nor on the the street. Again, check your deed restrictions. You will most likely have 72 hours to park it in your driveway, then it will have to be moved. Most folks here use one of the local RV parking companies for that.

I'm really curious as to what type of driveway you'll have - mine is a villa with the arced driveway. No way I could get a 22' vehicle on there.

I called Community Standards and got some clarification on what is considered an RV. If the vehicle has water and electric hookup it's considered an RV and the 72 hours restriction would be in effect. I'm glad this topic came up and I called because I thought if it looked like a van and fit in the driveway you would be okay.

Haha - that is too funny! It looks like a van and should be OK? It's 22' long! I have never seen a "van" anywhere near that long. Putting a dress on a pig doesn't make it any less of a pig.

Sorry, couldn't help myself.

Default Boat & trailer

Why not consider storing your RV (or boat) in one of the many official storage areas in The Villages & surrounding area????????

I salute you for taking the time to get the information bafore hand. So many don't do that, and then complain about "too many rules".

Thank you for being a good neighbor.

Sounds like you don’t have place to store it. I would think TV would tell you park it in your driveway then go to one of the 10 or so storage places & get a storage unit, then come back & get it out of there. Probably they’ll give you 2 hrs. Don’t mean to sound like a prude but seriously they’ll probably say 2 to 4 days!

Actually - it pays to call the proper place rather than go on line and get opinions.

I found out the hard way about parking a Class B Pleasure-Way van in the driveway. Before we bought our home we rented and drove down from Ohio in the Class B. I got the notice on the 4th day to move it. I was in a bind as that was the only vehicle we had down here. I appealed the notice stating that the management company that rented the home had nothing in their contract regarding deed restrictions of any kind. I was only here for one month and after going back and forth with them they let me keep it there. I did talk to the other owners on the Cul-de-sac and asked if they would prefer me parking on the street or the driveway, they understood my dilemma and all preferred that I keep it in the driveway. Compliance did contact the owner of the home as well as the management company instructing them both to show copies of the restrictions. I will say the compliance department was very tough and if I would not have had the contract with me they would have made me move it, they even gave me the address of the storage facility on 466 at that time. In closing, if you are planning on bringing down a Class B be prepared to pay for storage.

sorry glad you called, but it could be $500,000, rules still apply
