Daubsy, the trailer looks well screened. But, what is that blue thing in the picture? That's next.

Couldn't you put up a huge Lone Star flag? Let her try to complain about that.

From your unpaved driveway, I'm also thinking this must be south Austin, which makes the whole entire fuss even more amazing...

By the way, we had a detective inspect our VIN yesterday; he said ours was the second Escape he's done. I asked if the first was yours, but he "couldn't remember." Nice guy, though.

Hey Mary. Actually I'm in Rosedale, North Austin. But your right, I don't think I would be having this problem on the South side.

Sounds like your in the tedious process of registering your trailer. Completing the registration process is cause for celebration around here!

Personally, I'd wait and see if your neighbor rats you out to the authorities. My next step would be to comply with what Austin code dictates. There's no sense trying to second guess code compliance when you can get the facts straight from the horses mouth. My guess is that you will only be fined if you do not comply and I'll bet you get 30 days to do so.

I've found just going to City Hall and asking who to talk to first is the best way to handle it. City Hall is often tired of people who complain about everything (making more work for them) and will be reasonable with you. I've gotten a couple variances after simply filling out a form and paying a small fee.

Oh my goodness. This is also weird behavior for Rosedale! (I'm very familiar with that part of town; used to take swimming lessons at Ramsey pool, back in the day - a lonnnng time ago...)

Did you have to get your trailer weighed?

No weighing necessary, and no safety inspection. It's below the minimum weight for that. The DMV goes by the weight on the certificate of origin. Thank God. The VIN inspection requirement "by a member of the Texas Auto Theft Task Force" is hassle enough.

But this is Travis County

Since ours is a 21, our situation's different. (MCO lists GVWR at 4600 lbs, even though the trailer of course weighs less; but it's the gross they go by on whether to require the safety inspections, and for that it's trailers above 4500 lbs.)

Sorry, for moving your thread off-topic, Sean.
