Our neighbor behind our house said they were helping out some friends and letting them park their RV in their yard until their house sold. These neighbors are very kind people. I really was not surprised that they would offer a little help to their friends.
Our back yard is not very deep. Up against the fence between our yards is our garden. Our house is not very big. In the summer we entertain more often because we can fit more guests outside then we can inside.
The RV is parked right next to the fence looming over our garden and our yard. It turns out the friends that they are helping out have parked and moved into their million dollar RV.
I met the couple and they are very nice. I can tell they are also well versed in the art of mooching or taking advantage of their family and friends. Our neighbors were as shocked as we were when their RV came rolling down the street. Since they committed to them and the guy who happens to be in construction built a pad and hooked up water and sewer, they feel there is really no turning them away!
As I sit in my home office with the window open I can hear the air-conditioning from their MOHO. It isn’t even the hot dog days of August and the MOHO’s air is constant! To say I am upset is an understatement. I already had to put shade cloth up on my cucumbers from the reflection beating down off the MOHO!
Here is my gripe: If you can afford a million dollar motor home, a new pick-up and a new Range Rover, I think you can afford to park your MOHO in a RV park!
They mislead their friends too. The couple has 4 adult kids who want to visit their parents. My neighbors are already out of sorts with their friends because suddenly they will have company in their back yard!
There are no neighborhood rules since it is the street behind me. We live in an unincorporated part of the county, which means things like this, are loosey goosey.
I was complaining to a friend who in her neighborhood has the homeless living in parked RVs. I have the millionaires!
Thanks for listening to my gripe!!
