I live in California. Our HOA took the State Vehicle Code which exempts pickup trucks from the commercial parking overnight laws. The state code says vehicles over 10,000 pounds can be prohibited from parking in residential areas between 2am to 6am. The state code also says a local authority cannot make any changes without first getting approval from the DMV. The restriction also includes utility body trucks and trucks with a bed over 9 feet. Our HOA added " or aftermarket storage box or chest". Almost everyone who owns a pickup has a box put in the bed to lock up their stuff so it wont bounce around or get stolen. They have ripped off the parking decals they gave us when we moved in and told us we can no longer park inside the community overnight. Their are around 18,000 who live here and number of them own pickups trucks with a box in the back. There isn't any parking in this area except a few streets. You couldn't get a parking spot before this whole thing happened. The owners and the people who work in this area have those spots taken up day and night. We are looking at a 1 to 2mile walk to get back to our homes. No BS.
If I understand your question, if your lease says you cannot do something and you are breaching that agreement, they likely have the right to revoke your parking privileges. Having said that, if there are in fact a number of other people in the complex parking similar trucks to yours, in the same areas, and are not being sanctioned then you might have a FEHA case on your hands. In other words, if they are discriminating against you for some reason then they are liable.
I recommend contacting your local housing authority and an attorney who specializes in landlord-tenant law.
Best of luck!

In order to do this, the HOA must have the power to restrict parking on its streets, usually found in the CC and R's. An issue will arise as to whether or not the streets are public or private streets. Also, in order for the HOA to make this regulation, it must be deemed reasonable and their should be some purpose behind it. Contact an attorney specializing in HOA's to determine whether your rights are being violated.
