    It`s parked at the side of our house which is in between us and behind gates, you hardly notice it from the road unless you look up the drive.

    There is actually a covenant in the deeds that says no vehicles behind the house line or in front of it ( or words to that effect ) but no one takes any notice of it.

    Something like this happened to a friend of ours a few years back and they ended up having to put their motorhome into storage.

    40 years ( all their married life ) they`d lived there and it ultimately ended up with them moving so they could have their motorhome back at home.
    I know a guy, his company said you take a company van home and every day you have to be on site, wherever it is at your start time. Yes his neighbor said to him on the first evening, your not parking that thing on your driveway every night !

    Yes he rented a parking space a few streets away to keep the peace with his neighbor and keep his work happy.

    Over the years, we have looked at a few bungalows as we would like one and we have approached neighbours of the prospective bungalows.
    We have yet to find one where the neighbours would be happy and the parking suits us.
    We are lucky with excellent neighbours, plenty of hard standing parking where we are, and would never have a van if I could not park on our own property as I often tinker or open it up to get fresh air. I could not do this if away from our home.
    Regarding covenants, I think most new estates have one and you would be surprised what could be on them, including sheds and front boundaries. Not many are 100% conformed to, so even if a M/H infringes the covenant, maybe the next door is infringing in other ways

    edit.
    I understand that a covenant can be enforced by any new neighbour moving in, even years later, and also anybody with any interest even living in neighbouring streets

    Someone would have to be prepared to put in a lot of effort in order to enforce a covenant, and after 25 years they become virtually void anyway if they have been breached without complaint Can Covenant Be Enforced | Enforcing Covenants

    I doubt many of us have placed a M/H on our property for over 25 years

    It is primarily that reason that has stopped us moving in the past and will continue to do so at present.

    We`ll see what this new neighbour turns into but it`s not looking good if he greeted me with that statement over the weekend.

    It`ll be 38 years on Good Friday since we moved in here.

    Similar to us, we have lots of hard standing and yes, it did cost, luckily we have excellent immediate neighbours, and all in the culdesac are good!
    Maybe the guy was having a bad day, but if not, would your other neighbours back you up.
    He would not be popular would he?

    Many breaches of covenant do occur for over 25 years, most commonly Id say is the erection of external tv aerials on houses from the 70s to 90s which often have such a covenant.
    Whilst motorhomes were not nearly so common 25 years ago, certainly many have kept caravans for over that time in breach of covenant. I would imagine that changing from a caravan to a motor caravan during the period would be counted as a continuous breach if a case were to be fought.

    Yes, I agree about a caravan and a M/H continuing the breach. Front hedges and sheds are another
    Usually a covenant will state something like any house on wheels. not mentioning caravan or M/H.
    I wonder if anybody else in the area has had a caravan on the ground for over 25 years and would this set a president

    Yes, that would be a great trump card.
