This is something my father who grew up in working class surroundings in Turkey would say, "hell no, WTF did I come to America for in the first place?"

ShawnDoc: dletter: Is there nothing like this now? Did I just trip upon something here? Living in somewhere more like Topeka, I may be totally out of the loop

There is. There's plenty of people that rent out apartments or condos for short stays, even just overnight. You often have to contact a service that specializes in "corporate housing" to book them though. They're fully furnished, and there's no way to tell they are not just regular apartments or condos. Some places even have houses set up like this.

I've stayed in a few of them. They've ranged from dive apartments to places that were super posh.


Well, I guess I knew there were things like that (especially in the "corporate housing" space), I guess I was just going towards more of the "trickery"/"personal use" end (ie, them putting photos of you put up, etc), and based on that, much more catering towards the 1-2 day thing vs. a week or monthly. Although, I'm guessing the places like you are talking about would do "special requests" like putting some photos out (ie, the idea being, the person, if it is needed, just shows up at the address when needed and it is "ready", they don't have to do any prep work).

ShawnDoc: The biggest problem though is where to park it. Its $1,200/mo to park it at the cheapest RV park near me, so there's no money savings there. Its illegal to park overnight on the streets.


That depends on where on the "left coast" you are. There are lots of areas where parking overnight on the streets is completely legal. Hell, there are a bunch of folks who've lived in RVs for years in Venice.
