Campers, RV's, Boats and Trailers

Parking Rule Revisions From March 2007

Campers, trailers and boats can be parked in the driveway (but not on the lawn or dirt area). RVs must be parked in the side yard or backyard if there is reasonable access. If there is no reasonable access to park the RV in the side yard or backyard, it may be parked in the driveway as long as it does not extend out over the sidewalk. It may not be left standing within 20 feet of the front yard or street side yard (corner lot) if space is available in the driveway. In addition to the local laws regulating placement of such vehicles on residential property, the City's Municipal Code limits the parking of RVs on private property to one such vehicle on a property at any time.

The following sections of the City of San Leandro's Municipal Code apply:
