If the residents don't stop parking their RV's in front of houses and in driveways it is going to start looking like a cheap Park City trailer park

I agree. Especially the $150,000 motor homes. They really exhibit a "cheap" message.(tongue-in-cheek)

Stony LOL some of those park City double wides with the attched garages go for around 100 K. LOL all that money and it's still a trailer. Trailers and RV's dont belong in towns like Gurnee and Libertyville

With all due respect, a trailer worth $100K is NOT the same as a motor home worth $100K. Motorhomes/RV's are discretionary purchases. If someone has an extra $100k to spend for their leisure, I'm pretty sure that they cannot be considered to be part of a "cheap" neighborhood. Gurnee, Libertyville, Grayslake, Lake Forest, Winnetka, Riverwoods....etc.

Our neighbor here in Wildwood has her son's pull along camper in her front yard. In Wildwood there isn't any law against it. Makes giving people directions to our house easier, that's for sure.

My sister lives in the Oakwood section of Dayton, OH. That community has strange laws such as men cannot be outside with their shirt off. They will get a ticket if they are.

Another great example of government becoming more instrusive. The are debating something that has NO tangible effect on anyone else. And no, just because you don't like it does't count. Show me how parking on your driveway unfairly impacts anyone else...

Trailers,campers,RV's make a neighborhood look like a trailer park. next thing you know your attracting the wrong sort of people to your town. poperty values go down and then you really do have trash coming to live there. NOPE keep the trailers and the trailer trash in ParkCity, if you cant afford to stay in a hotel when you travel you have no business in our town

Atracting the wrong sort of people? That sounds very fascist. Be fought world wars to end that sort of tyranny. Furthermore, do you even know the demographics of RV owners?

Have you looked EAST (of Gurnee)lately? A couple RVs seem to me to be the least of your worries.

Camper trailers and RVs are hardly the same as house trailers. And not everyone who happens to live in a house trailer is automatically a redneck, uneducated person. However I think that some people who live in "real" houses just might be.
