RV Parking.
Posted by slowman (+24) 9 years ago
I am New to the RV ownership here in miles city and would like to know the rules on parking. I see RV'S parked on the street is that okay or do I need to find a spot to park my RV off the street.

That topic has come up here before but that was 2.5 years ago, so I don't know if the law has changed or not:

Yes, David, you are right and whomever answered the question at the PD was WRONG. You cannot leave any vehicle parked on a public roadway for extended periods of time. Licensed or not. And you CANNOT live in your RV on a public roadway or private property for that matter, unless it is so zoned.

Talk to your neighbors. If they are okay and don't complain, the cops will ignore it. If they are mad, they will complain and a cop who actually knows the city code may respond. Most of what gets enforced in MC is by complaint.

ETA: I've been thinking about this. How was the question phrased? Can I park my RV on the street? Sure. Can I park my RV on the street indefinitely for months? Um, no.

what can I say, other than lots of folks other than me don't know or maybe don't care about parking their RV's on the street.I did call the City hall and was advised to call the PD that say its okay, you would think they know.

There are also many open lots here in Miles City that are for sale. I have thought about getting one and adding a fence just for RV private parking. I dont know if it would go over well, but it does in Billings. There it would be off the street and it would be gated and clean.
