In all fairness, most RV topics have been covered ad-nauseum and a forum search will provide all the information one could use. Many of us have been around for a while, and skim over the posts about what kind of toilet paper we use or whether an RV cover is a good idea or which tire pressure is best.

These "opinion" threads are interesting because everybody has one!

I am new and I guess you are correct but I you must know how valuable it is for me and the OP to read your comments. I am here in Knoxville at Buddy Gregg in our new Thor Tuscany 40 EX learning how to make everything work and WOW it's incredible, I will be posting photos soon.

Your collective wisdom has been something very valuable to me. I am sure everyone feels this way about the information here.

Definitely agree! This place is an excellent resource for all RVers. No one minds the newbie questions; we were all newbies at one time.

I was responding the post about why this particular thread is so busy while others are not.

ETA--I notice that you are the "OP". So you just bought your RV and haven't taken it home to park next to your neighbor yet? Good luck and congrats on the new rig.

If you move the Coach offsite for the neighbors to get their house sold, this would be something in a disclosure that the sellers and realtor should have disclosed to the buyer in California.
Yes, I would consider relocating it to a Nice, Secure, Close, Enclosed Storage so that it is out of the weather and stays cleaner if my neighbor wanted to prepay it for a minimum of 12 months.
Otherwise forget it!

Your neighbour is being extremely selfish in that he
Wants you to subtract something from your life
For his gain.

Neighbor Upset with our buying MH.....

I can't do anything about it because it's mine and I don't have any other convenient place to park it during the summer use period. Thankfully, the neighbors have yet to complain. I think I am the only one that complains about it. We do have other rec vehicles park along the street during the summer months, ie: camp trailers and boats, and all vehicles are gone during the winter months.



It sounds like your city doesn't have any codes about using the street for vehicle storage. For us it is 72 hours, albeit the code officer typically only addresses issues that are obvious long term parking or expired tags and then only if contacted by someone from the neighborhood. We had 2 folks from other neighborhoods parking a derelict RV and jeep on our street. No way for me to contact them with a friendly conversation. I called the officer. He marked the rig as "tow" and gave them a week to move it with no financial repercussions. They did.

You may well have neighbors that don't like your rig parked there but decide it isn't worth it to create an issue with you as a neighbor. Sounds like the culture of your neighborhood accepts it, although I've found over the past 8 years that our neighborhood upkeep has improved by my efforts to quietly make my property nicer than the prior owner. Others have followed. It's amazing what one person can do to influence good or bad even without saying anything.

For me, I decide to keep within their good graces and limit my time on the street to 24 hours as the width of the street with no sidewalks also makes it a safety issue. Several others have off street parking which is allowed and they enjoy having that option. I have 2 doing such nearby. Unfortunately for is this freedom means that a block away a non-functioning class C RV with a matted blue tarp is now serving as a home for an added family in a driveway at a residence zoned single family. They are free to do so and we have seen graffiti in the neighborhood and the police have talked with the kids after spotting them smashing bottles on the street.

I would think must be an affluent neighborhood if the neighbors can afford a new RV. Wouldn't bother me a bit. I too agree that the agent is looking to lower the price quickly for a sale. But who know maybe the sellers are insisting on an inflated price and he is using this to try and get it down.

Stick with your guns, you also want your new neighbors to know exactly what they are getting.

Add a few more things to the yard

I would go out and get a boat, a car dolly, a ATV and trailer, etc and park it all very neatly next to the RV.

Congratulations on getting your problem solved. I for one would have asked the neighbor to have his realtor send me the request in writing on company letterhead. It's interesting how putting something in writing makes people really think.

We don't have any neighbors but if we did and were asked to do what your neighbor asked I think I would have chosen your response. Sounds like he respected your response as well.

OK, we're home and parked at my house. I thought I would show you what all the fuss is about. The house on the left, the white house is Jack and Jill's. The house on the right, the yellow one, is our house. The brown brick in the middle is the new addition that seems to have caused all the ruckus.



As you can see, there's about 35 feet between MH and my house, on the other side it looks to be about 75-100 feet.

Oh well, there goes the neighborhood....

OMG. Well, I think you handled it perfectly. You neighbor and his realtor are on crack or should be.

They've got to kidding... I would not worry about their concerns for 2 seconds. AND... anyone that is concerned by your coach in the yard should go live somewhere in the woods....!

Laugh it off and ignore them!
