9. And at the same site, an article about homeless encampments in San Jose

So living in your RV by choice is cool and hip, whereas living in it by necessity is ???

I suppose an article about people who live in their trucks/vans/RVs because even a $20/hr job doesn't cover Bay Area rents would be old news.

(I do know someone who voluntarily lived in his van for about a year c. 1980, but his reason was that he was traveling for work at least 3 weeks a month and didn't have the time to look for a place. His employer let him park at their office and use the kitchen and shower facilities there, he stored stuff with friends, and when he got a more normal job found an apartment.)
