It's kinda expensive to rent a room and I can't see myself sharing a house with strangers. Should I live in my car and use the gym to bathe? I live in a warm area near the beach. I'm a disabled vet so I don't have to worry about money.

Re: Should I live in my car?
I lived in a car about 20 years ago for a while. I could have stayed in the local homeless shelter but I chose the car. I showered in the swimming pool. The car wasn't actually mine and was only small and not very good but it actually wasn't that bad! I quite liked the freedom. Sounds like you are in warmer area then here in England.

Does anybody here from the UK live like this? If so, how does parking work?
 Quoting: The Sexy Negan


We seriously looked into this, as we can't afford to live any longer, we looked into narrowboats but the CRT fees are as high as council tax, you have to keep moving unless you have a private berth or pay marina fees, then theirs fuel costs and its damp. With a road vehicle parking is an issue because you can't park overnight in most car parks, and you will get shifted on a road side. Fuel is extortionate, the other problem we found when we looked into it is that your driving licence must by law have your current address as must your registration docs, or you cant renew the road tax. You cant get insurance, and what do you do if it fails its mot. This is the reason most of the gypsies have no insurance or tax, except that they have the advantage of playing the race card over everyone else, and they know their rights as ethinic minorities, which the rest of us don't have. Unless you have money to buy a piece of land to keep your vehicle on (which you will still pay council tax for), or have money to pay for site fees, then its just not workable in the UK
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 74500392


I was lucky when I lived in a car because the car wasn't actually mine. You could just register the car at a friend/family member's address so that you can keep it taxed etc. parking is not a problem at all, I don't know why you say you will get moved on from side roads? there is plenty of parking.

Thanks for the advice. Glad to hear parking won't be an issue. Looking like I am going to have to follow through with it next week.

I found this out, that's why I moved to Ireland. The UK's a total police state, you can't even park a caravan without having to pay council tax on it. Don't have that problem in Ireland.

I started doing that a month ago and I love it but it's not without its due dangers. I just had someone trying to break into my car while I was sleeping. Just a couple of hours ago. I was sleeping behind my workplace's building and it was peaceful for until now.

Re: Should I live in my car?
Way back I lived in my car for about 6 months. Worked full time and slept in the parking lot where I worked. Bathed at friends houses and even got a meal now and then.
Saved enough money to buy some land and build a house.
The rest is history, good luck.

You will be miserable as fuck , as a short term need be situation then yes but it will be anything near enjoyable. Try to stay in safe areas if you can or pull up at a mates house and crash in your car. Good luck life works in mysterious ways , sometimes we must tread water in order to get where we are going.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 866495


Have you thought about a 'tiny home'? Might be a bit more comfortable, and most of them are somewhat mobile. The trick is finding a place to park it, but I've seen some pretty creative ideas on the net.

If you just want to maintain your mobility, why not get a travel trailer if you want to travel?

Living in a car doesn't sound very comfortable to me, and you still have to find a place to park it each night and it's not very safe. A van might be safer.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 866495

You say that you're disabled. Does the disability impede with getting in, sitting in, or getting out of the car? If so, this may make the decision for you.

You will have the same problems that our British friend has... Without a permanent address somewhere- even a borrowed one, you will not be able to register your car, your drivers license, or get insurance. Can you rent a mailbox in one of those shipping / packaging places? Dunno. 1dunno1

After thinking about it for a bit, I don't think that humans are meant to be nomadic like that. For anyone... esp. for those who are older, living like that has to get old after a time. My sugg is that you do it for a while, but only so that you can save money for a rent deposit or for a down payment for a house.

And whatever you do, don't ever take the mark of the beast (when it comes out).

Good Luck. God Bless.
