Trying to get even is certainly attractive but it tends to backfire on you. Best to go on about your business and leave the haters to their crummy lives.

Living well is the best revenge.

Maybe you should hang a sign on the front bumper "Its an RV!" or get a custom tag/license plate that says that

Just in case anyone was wondering....this is Sir Richard Midnight (named from a little girl that saw us as we rescued him at Humane society) with HIS couch in HIS room, which doubles as my office

In Minnesota, my new plates say RVE and then a number. I don't know what the E means, but the RV plate will keep me out of trouble.

A shame we couldn't show up with a bunch of our "buses" and park on the street for a while. Take turns parking in the driveway, rev the diesels once in a while together around 6 am. Then drive away. Just to do it again a few days later. Sounds like a scene from a biker movie but it might get the point across.

Well, at least I'm OK with the city. My neighbors can go suck an egg. This will motivate me to finish sooner. Too bad it has taken this to wake my @$$ up!

Ah come on now....

Didn't you just bring this home at the end of January?

Ours has been parked in the front yard (yeah, front yard and not driveway) for 2 1/2 years. Not to rub it in, more to say a few months is not long at all for a conversion.

I doubt many here can say they finished their conversion in 3 months.
