Why Doesn’t The HOA Allow Pick-up Trucks?
The best answer to that question, is because they can and they did. Maybe when most of the HOAs that do not allow pick-up trucks were writing their rules and regs, pick-up trucks were dusty, rusty, nasty looking vehicles (at least in the eyes of the HOA writers). Think Duck Dynasty. Now, of course, pick-up trucks can be flashy and shiny and very sexy looking. Some pick-up trucks these days cost more than the condo or home being purchased.
I was showing condos to a couple who were all set to buy, until they mentioned those deal killing words “pick-up truck”. This complex does not allow pick-ups (they do allow pets). The buyers asked: could they make an exception and let them live there with their pick-up till they returned north in March. They promised to drive their car down next year.
What was the answer to this question? Since the HOA would then be setting a precedent by allowing this, the answer is no. Why don’t they allow pick-up trucks? It’s anyone’s guess but they don’t. It's in the rules. End of story.
