Hiding in a cubby hole to sleep is no use if you snore...which you don't know you're doing while sleeping.
One other person could work ok if you are very close to each other. I saw plenty of women doing it. I got pretty friendly with a couple of them. One lady had a story very much like min and we would often commiserate together. I would not recommend pets. The smell alone will tell people what you are doing. Cats might be less of an issue than dogs, but I would not do that to either one. Dogs are also generally to noisy for the stealth you need. I have seen families living in there cars, and it is getting more common. A family from Las Vegas sticks in my memory most. The husband and wife had worked at the Bellagio until they had gotten laid off. They lived in an old Jeep Cherokee with 2 young children.

Maybe it would be an education experience beyond imagination.
I doubt the wife would go for it though.
"Honey,.... yes-I quit. Let's sell everything-put in the bank and go live out of the car for a few years. yes, our car. No I am not kidding. No Hotels baby.... We gonna rough it...but, with my recently accquired book of knowledge as our guide....."
That wouldn't go over too well, I am afraid. I hear you folks on the one person living in/out of the car but what about two, three, dogs/pets etc. I see a lot when I drive around.edit on 3/5/2012 by anon72 because: (no reason given)
You have a right to live. You have a right to be. You have these rights regardless of money, health, social status, or class. You have these rights, man, woman, or child. These rights can never be taken away from you, they can only be infringed. When someone violates your rights, remember, it is not your fault.

Living out of your car because you have to must be a lot different than doing it because you want to. Although the way I look at it in a way it was kind of a necessity for me too because it was the only way I could afford to travel the country and windsurf. Car camping is the way to go! Campers are so out right now with the price of gas! When I did it I rented out my house. I'd have never come back except for the fact that my renters destroyed the house and quit paying rent. It was back to the grind for me. Was supposed to be for just a short time till I put the house back together but that was over 15 years ago!
