About 3 weeks ago I saw a MH parked at our local Publix. It was a Tuscany-about 40', DP. Looked OK from a distance. The parking lot is small for a grocery store and it's in a very residential area. I thought "Wow, that has to be a neighbor, must be loading up before a trip". The way the RV was parked in the parking lot led me to believe that they were inside getting supplies.
Fast forward a few days and oddly enough the RV was there again! I started getting suspicious.
A week later, still there. Now I'm thinking perhaps one of the workers is living in it.
Three weeks later and it moves to a new spot. OK, it's private property and I've given up caring.
As I was leaving our subdivision last Saturday, I drove past the same RV! It has taken up residence in an empty lot. There are hundreds of empty lots in our community that still need to be built upon. This is a lot that used to house the sales trailer for the developer way back when. It is level, has asphalt, and is about 2 acres. I stopped, did a double-take, and got some photos. I did get up close and the rig is in pretty bad shape. The stairs are tied up with rope, there are various trim pieces falling off and it is pretty banged up.
I emailed the on-site Property Manager the photos and asked if our subdivision had become a member of Harvest Hosts? We do have a lovely 18-hole golf course within our sub-division. She didn't get the joke. Our sub-division, like most, has a "No RVs Allowed on Any Property" clause. They remind us monthly in the newsletter. Which is why this is pretty funny. I was the only homeowner who emailed her she said!
She did email me today, Tuesday, stating the MH owner is not a homeowner in our subdivision and the tags are expired so perhaps it is stolen? She found the owner via FB and tried to call him. She left a message that his rig (40' DP) would be towed at his expense if it were not removed within 24-hours. I didn't alert her to the cost of that tow job.
My point of this: I can't believe that someone would think they could get away with letting this huge RV sit, trespassing on private property, right across from the main office, in a golf course community! We have very few RVers in our community and only a few have MHs. Crazy!
