What is it about RVs specifically that gets people riled the fuck up against it? This almost never happens with other midlifecrisis-tier projects like game rooms / "mancaves".
Do you people hate motorhomes or big SUVs too? Is it a constant, all-year seethe or do you only get angry when you see one online?
Explain it to me please im not being ironic in the slightest, I actually need to know. Caravans are such a weird thing to hate, you've got to have reasons.

Other than only an idiot would spend time in a camper if they are not camping? Holy fuck. What blows people away is how stupid these people are and that you don't understand the concept of being scum. Have you ever seen a reputable person drag their ass out of their faggen wagon? Nope, cause it doesn't happen. Ever. Only faggots and retards. In your case a little of both. It's what happens when your mom and dad are brother an sister.

If I was not living with my wife, I think I would live inside something like this.

A camping-car (I think you call them camper over there) can be found working for like 5k around here, you have everything in it, and it beats having to pay 500 per month for rent.

But then again, once you find a wife or something, it's over. It's not a good life if you're not alone.

One of the main interest of such a home is the mobility. If you choose to live and park in a place with non-Whites, you're not very smart to begin with.
Also, a dude with a rock can enter your home in 5 seconds. How is that any different bro.

Well if you live like this, you're exactly homeless now, are you.
I continue to believe that when you're young, after leaving your parents' house, it's better to buy a van and live in it for a few years than it is to rent an apartment and buy a car.
>>
>>2026783
That's a slick choice since a rollback can quickly deploy living quarters then drive off to be used as transportation. They'll also carry a 20ft shipping container which can be made into a vastly better and stronger living space than some old junk camper for little money.
A rollback can tow another vehicle on the stinger so you can bring your car or use the stinger as a trailer hitch.
You can install a used rollback bed on any suitable truck and the truck that delivered my 20' container was an F350 though with trucks bigger is generally better and straight trucks with real, many truck drivetrains are much tougher than babby trucks.

Shitty and schizo gyppo owners.
Show up in a NICE one and it's not a problem.
>>
>>2028092
Depends where you live. Renting a trailer or cheap house with room to wrench worked superbly for me while the restrictions of apartment or RV would have sucked, and I could easily build an RV conversion since I built a schoolbus shop bus (never again, I'd buy a proper truck instead for the superior layout and convenience of a straight dry van body or I'd get a rollback to do multiple duty and plop a 20' container on the back for mobility).

My boss offered me one of the company's old cement trucks cheap if I can get it running (and chip the shit out of the mixer). I was thinking the mixer would make a cool camper. Maybe have one set of furniture on the floor and another on the ceiling, and rotate the whole thing to switch activities.

Problem is that the cab is not connected to the living space so most of the time you're just driving truck and not getting paid for it.
>>
>>2029142
True. It is built to get somewhere not just to be somewhere. You will not find the same towing capacity in anything cab connected. That is his priority for the build. Having the living space on auto level airbags independent of the suspension and cab bags has advantages off road. Thing hits potholes and the living area acts like a steadicam. Keeps his woman from bitching.

I think they got "the stacks" wrong in Ready player one. It won't be trailers and scaffolding, it will be parking garages with RV hookups filled with NEET wagons. From a bussiness POV it makes sense. Solid established architecture, easy to rent/maintain lots, easy to tow/evict tenants. An apartment complex you can manage without ever cleaning a carpet, patching a hole in a wall or unclogging a sink. Better than filling overpasses and Walmart lots with parking.

Bad news, bro.
The whole fuckin covidiotic coronascam has made nomad vandwelling literally unfeasible (maybe except in the short term, but things will eventually worsen).
Building your own cozy-house-on-wheels will be far less satisfying, as long as the Epoch of Mandatory Pandemics goes on.

>>2026787

Noice. It will be nice, every Monday morning, go down and doing some slalom around your poo's to get to the grocery store and buy some essentials, and then trying to lift them up the cozy-house-on-a-tree without stomping on some random vintage poop.
Also, it seems like it's not that insulated. It won't be that cozy when temperatures drop below 40.

My studio apartment.

I have a Little Buddy propane heater for when it's below freezing. I have a few 3/8" hopes in my floor and can see light through my door seals. Is that enough ventilation to run the heater overnight? Leaving a window cracked is too cold.

>$2200 for 800w of panels
>$1350 for fucking 536 POUNDS of deep cycle lead acid batteries
Just no. A SunPower Max3 will do 400 watts, they're like $450, and you can fit 2 of them on that roof easily. You could do 3 if you don't mind them overhanging the roof by 210mm on each side, and that's still not as wide as the wheelbase.

As for the batteries, to get the equivalent 5.4 Kwh useable energy, you'd need like 6.5kWh in lithium cells - that would be $2k brand new, *and* the lithium cells will far outlive the lead acid batteries, and won't need watered, and won't release hydrogen gas into your enclosed living space.

It is way better to tow a caravan with a good tow vehicle. Decouple the vehicle once you get to your destination. Towing a car behind a bus is madness! Do you want to use 60 L/100kms?

I totally agree, but some people see it as a homeless thing.
>>
>>2026959
Why would parking an RV in front of a building irritate the occupants?
>>
>>2042522
RVs got a bad reputation because the bad RV people would do things like dump waste and trash wherever they wanted. So now people with houses assume that most RV people will behave badly.
>>
>>2042604
In a world of information overload, pattern recognition is essential.
>>
>>2042522
Because most homeless are vermin who attract other vermin.
