Looks like there is plenty of space there for a nice tall hedge. Problem solved! \ken

And oh yes, what are you going to do about the sewer manhole in the street? The tar patches in the street? I actually think your MH makes their property look very desirable.

Vincee,

I know which houses you are talking about. I Live just a little ways from them and can remember when on that street there was like 6 houses. Kind of like the racetrack not that far from them that has been there for over 50 years and now makes noise.

Yeah, that drain is a problem, I have called the town several times and they don't do much about it. I clean it out every so often. Clearly I am not a very good neighbor.

The realtor now says that your house being yellow is not good for our resale.

Can you repaint it white by the weekend? We have a showing on Saturday.

Signed --Your neighbor


Being serious, your response was just perfect!!


P.S. Thanks for the pictures.

I read this thread back when it first started and was surprised that it was still going.

Nice picture of your MH. I actually think your MH adds to the value of their house. I'm not sure I'd want to park my MH next to their house it detracts from the value of your MH.

Honestly. You've got a great set up. Nice neighborhood, plenty of space between homes, trees between houses.

I have a catch basin by our drive and I clean it as it takes less time than calling. And as suggested, if you have any remaining guilt pangs at all, a row of tall arborvitae would shield their house from your MH's view.

And when this thread started I pictured that maybe your neighbor had a legitimate complaint:

True story: A lady of a few years bought a nice house in our county in the summer time. She apparently didn't notice the elementary school a little ways from her back yard. She actually called the district and asked if we could "Do something" about the noise from the kids on recess that was disturbing her enjoyment of the back lanai. She suggested keeping them inside! I know it's only slightly on topic but we still laugh about it even now and it certainly is indicative of some outlooks out there.

Anyhow, that is a really nice area you are living in to have that much room between nice houses. Your RV may attract as opposed to repel buyers. It was completely in your own interest to leave it there. Imagine if the new neighbors were the type to take offense to it? At least now you should get another neighbor sympathetic or even another camping buddy (With their own rig hopefully)!

We have two other motorhomes on this street. One is for sale and both are against the house, actually against their garage. They are both, older, smaller RV's but both diesel pushers.

My garage faces south instead of west, facing the road. So that's why I had to park it so far out in the open. It can't go next to the house since it would block the two car garage.

I live in a fairly large town and I know there are dozens of RV's in this neighborhood, but just two on this street so it would be hard to get a lot of support against us but if the new neighbors are rich and have time on their hands, or worse, if they are lawyers, then it might be possible for them to move against us. With appeals and delays, it could take years. We will only be there another 5 years anyway, at the most. We are already looking casually at homes with a MH garage or a property to build one.

Child is gone at college, no need for the big house anymore, we want to go smaller anyway. So again, timing is great. Crossed fingers, we can stay here trouble free and move on to that next place without a problem.

But, if those neighbors really piss us off, we may upgrade to a 45ft tag and paint it YELLOW to match the house

Hi Ho: Some people really think the world revolves around them, and forget that others also live on the planet. When we moved into our new home, we planned an RV garage in the back yard, which is not even visible from the street because of the elevation drop. Our next door neighbor objected to the garage, but interestingly enough not to our parking the motorhome in the backyard. Wanting to be good neighbors we didn't build the garage and have parked the RV on a pad where the garage was to have been built. They moved a couple of years later and our new neighbor has no objection at all to our building a garage. It just goes to show your that some folks are really self-centered.

I think your response was well done.

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....
Maybe if you parked it the other way round they would see things differently! LOL Certainly there is nothing to complain about in my estimation. Nice looking RV by the way.

Had a moment there. Then I thought. Build a heated garage to store it in. Then it would be out of sight. LOL again.
