FOUNTAIN INN, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Fountain Inn residents will be able to keep their campers out in the open - at least for now. The city council there has tabled an ordinance calling for recreational trailers to be out of sight.

The ordinance states: "Any type of recreational trailer must not be parked or stored on any residential lot unless completely shielded from view from any adjacent properties and roads by a privacy screen."

In simple terms - people will have to surround their campers with a fence or put it in an enclosure, like a garage.

Councilman Berry Woods Jr. said the language of the law was just too vague, adding that motor homes and horse trailers could be under this proposed ordinance.

"I agree people should do what they want with their property, but when it's sitting out there - a travel trailer is not meant to be in someone's front yard," Mayor Gary Long said.

The ordinance was tabled before its first reading. There is no word on when it will come back up for a vote.
