I wouldn't get my hopes up. They're not creating a new rule -- you've already stated what the rules already are.

You would need to be seeking an exception. You might have to go 'round the neighborhood, and document all of the other CCR violations, to have some leverage.

I think a lot of times, CCR rules are written NOT with the notion that they will always be enforced, but, with the idea that they have a way to control something that becomes an obvious problem.

You could argue that the vehicle is not being used as a crudded up contractor rig, but, for personal use. BUT, the board will know that if they let you do it, they will have a problem enforcing the restriction when a guy with a crudded up contractor rig comes along, and cites you as precedence.

That "county roads" post, above, would be worth a look.
