Chuck, same thing here in Tennessee. I've met more and more people who are living in their travel trailers... and they had no intention of becoming full-timers!
Desperate times call for desperate measures!
I live in Tennessee. Too bad I can't open up an RV park on our land (deed restrictions, at least there's no HOA to make more restrictions). Not even using our house now, will end up being in the RV this year more than being at home. Wife's already been extended an extra month, so we know we'll be in Alaska through mid-October. If the roads get too bad before then, we'll hope for another extension to cover the ferry costs back to the lower 48! I swear, it'll cost more to get the RV back than it did to buy the thing (pre-conversion price).
I'm just thankful that we weren't completely forced into this (i.e., the bank didn't kick us out of our house...though if we hadn't started this they probably would have).
Wait...what was this thread supposed to be about? Neighbors...ok, back on topic.
Our neighbors at the last assignment in Houston, TX had a big scary dog that was tied outside (against the rules) and could reach our RV. Not a big deal, except we have little kids. Did have one person want to look inside the RV as we were about to head out. I'm not saying he was overweight or anything...but our step wasn't broken before....
Neighbors here in Anchorage, AK are just whoever's working at the school that day. Apparently summer school was still in session until last week. One lady was pissed that we blocked her view of the mountains. Of course it was the only place we could park, and was where I was explicitly told to park. Didn't hear anything else from her, although someone did call the cops about our truck leaking gas (we had recently filled up so it did smell a bit like gas, and it had recently rained so there was a water puddle underneath...that's about it though). We'll have new neighbors in August (have to move to a park 20 miles away), shouldn't have too many neighbors there!
