I wonder if that neighbor has night vision binoculars to see what you're doing in the bedroom?
We've had some really bad neighbors and they can make you crazy. Now we live on 27 acres and are surrounded by trees, so no one can see anything. But we did have a neighbor who put two rounds through our mailbox—pretty good shooting for a guy who was usually drunk. He died shortly after, not at my hands. But, we have our house on the market and plan to move when we sell it. We will be checking carefully about HOA's and local ordinances. We don't want to store the trailer as that makes it harder to do maintenance and improvements plus it costs more money and increases the opportunities for theft.
Of course, once we find a new house, who knows what the reaction of neighbors will be? Some people can't differentiate between "trailer park trash" and people who happen to own an RV. Some people are just busy bodies and when they don't have an HOA to complain to (or run for an HOA board so they can torture everyone) they find a way to make neighbors' lives miserable.
When we look around the subdivisions in the area we plan to move to (Santa Fe), we note which ones have no RV's—a warning. I have read about HOA's and towns that have tried to ban pickup trucks (unsuccessfully I believe), so it can get worse.
