Enough is enough...moved it

Well I reconsidered moving the Airstream. I really do like to be a good neighbor. 12/15 got a visit from the Savannah Inspector. Someone had filed a complaint. Inspector could not understand why because it was a dead end alley, but they had to write me up. Move camper in 5 days or $1,000 fine. Inspector really nice and said they would work with me. Knocked down 60 year old Savannah Grey brick wall (bricks sell for $3 ea) which took me four days. Had a friend move the camper back 45 feet. Neighbor came home and asked how did I move it and then how long would it be there? Said did not want to talk about it and Merry Christmas. Later she caught me out by the "new" fence and was in tears. I mean tears? Explained I had planned to move it to a campground and when City cited me and suggested I move it onto my property, that is what I did. More tears. Really upset that she now looks out her kitchen window and sees the camper. I finally said that there had to be worse things than a camper in someone's backyard. Merry Christmas!

Wow - what a story! I agree; the tears are a bit much. Besides, it's a very pretty Airstream! I wouldn't mind being able to see it from my back porch. But then, I have an Argosy that lives in my driveway all year round, except when we're camping...

Good luck; I hope things improve with the neighbors!

Batten the hatches. . .

Good for you!

In an earlier post you indicated your neighbor "had a law background", so I reckon the next thing he will do is try to get a court order.

If you have a family attorney you might give him a "heads up". If you don't, you might want to make inquiries among your friends for a recommendation so you can make the acquaintance of a good lawyer in advance of actual need.

This sort of thing is part of the reason we moved to the country 20 years ago. Our nearest neighbor is a couple hundred yards away. In fact our "neighbor" to the east is a 400 acre soybean field.

Merry Christmas and best wishes for a happy and peaceful new year. . . but I kinda doubt it. . .

Yep, you really taught her, I guess.

Hi, with the size of the property that you seem to have, I can't understand what the big deal is about seeing an Airstream from the kitchen window. Maybe you neighbor should see what it's like in the city. My wife says it looks like our privacy is gone with out our trailer parked in my driveway.

We have an HOA that makes me keep our Bambi in storage. I've had her at home for a couple weeks at a time with no issues buy country living is in the distant future for us.

I think it adds a bit of class to the neighborhood.
