Stealth camping

Hey there,

I realize this is a very old topic but I am very new here, so maybe the two together can make it work out... :-) 

I have been street camping four nights a week for about a year now.  It has really worked out great for me.  Zero problems.   But I am setup for it.  I have a 2008 Chevy Express Cargo van that I have turned into a camper on the inside.  I am totally self contained, though I do drain gray water to the street.  Not much grey water in my use, maybe as much as a pint on a typical night.

The van is setup with two solar panels up on the roof and disguised in.  I have four deep cycle batteries.  I cut a hole in the floor and dropped a basket behind the rear axil that holds two twenty pound propane tanks on a switchover valve.

Now that I have been doing this for a bit I have gotten pretty good at spotting other stealth campers and talked to a few of them.  It is a very safe way to live on the cheap.  I can park around plumbing or electrical shops.  Or the best is small industrial parks surrounded by residential neighborhoods.   Quiet, good police protection.  :-)  This has been for me the perfect answer for an unexpected job change.
