Hi Danl and thanks for your post.

One of the most important things to understand when living in a mobile home park are the rules for the community. If there is a rule against storing campers and boats on the site and there is no designated lot or area for RVs, then you will need to find another location to store these items. Putting even a brand new camper or boat in the carport will immediately bring unwanted attention to your home.

So best to find another location to store your boat if the mobile home park does not have an available RV parking slot for you.

Good luck!

Each park has their own set of rules. My experience in our area is even the more lenient parks restrict storing RV's in your carport or driveway. Many of them do have separate RV lots where you can park your RV for a nominal fee. I know in our park we pay $50 a month for our camper.

Have an amazing day!

Always check with the park/community manager/owner before you ever even consider purchasing a MH. By law they have to show you the rules and regs before you ever sign a lease.

Most Mobile Home Parks have RV parking. Whenever considering the purchase of a mobile home in a park, check with the park manager for a printout of their rules and regulations, which vary from park to park.

Usually not. There is ususally an RV storage in the community. It is to do with fuels and propanes to close to the house
