4 sheets of plywood cut in half. Park van on pavers. Stack plywood in garage or garden shop when not in use.

I'm sure the neighbors and the HOA Board are really going to like your new deal.
They have covenants like that for a reason and you are just heading for a fight with the HOA.

I've never read an HOA that limits HOW you get your RV to an inconspicuous spot, and believe me, I've read PLENTY of them!

I'd drive it across the grass (unless for some reason you feel you will sink deeply in). After all, how frequently are you going to be taking it in and out?? If it were daily I'd configure something permanent, but for the occasional use I suspect it will see, my vote is for over the grass.


. . . never confuse education with intelligence

I've seen 15" x 15" cement pavers with holes in them that are set flush with the ground. The holes are partially filled with dirt and seeded with grass and are barely noticeable when the grass comes in. They seem to be designed to take the weight of a vehicle, but I don't know how well they would work if your camper has dual rear wheels.

You want a barrier between your RV and the ground. Having it parked on gravel or grass will allow moisture to rise onto the underbelly and wheel structure causing eventual problems. I did see a suggestion of plywood which would probably work. You could also use a tarp or go the expensive way and put in a RV pad of concrete, like I have.

I don’t get why you don’t just drive over the grass to get where you’re going. Unless you are going to do it every day (not really “temporary”) you aren’t going to hurt the grass. In 24 hours it’ll be unnoticeable.
