I am thinking about people who are forced to live in RVs because of there particular unfortunate circumstances.
In 1987 I went through a separation from my first wife, and subsequently later a divorce. [b]I wanted to find an inexpensive way to live in San Diego (no mean feat in those days), and a trailer seemed to be just the ticket. A friend of mine had a 1970 Airstream Safari Special 23' that needed some work, and he offered it to me for $2,000 delivered wherever I wanted it. I jumped at it, and while I had it on a ranch on Black Canyon Road in Ramona (one of the few properties out there that apparently didn't lose their home last week!) for a few months, I eventually moved it to a trailer park in La Mesa on Alvarado Road, which in those days was right next door to La Mesa RV (now Bob Stall Chevy). Now, its apparently an RV Resort. Then it was just a trailer park.
I bought my Fiber Stream
from a man who lived in it under identical circumstances to Roger's. The desire to live in San Diego inexpensively
is even more difficult today. The old trailer parks
are changing ownership, and the new owners are doing what it takes to cover their much higher expenses. Those that remain as RV parks go the Resort
route. The rest are cleared for redevelopment into condo projects. The only option left for many fulltimers here is stealth camping.
The following article's [b]Reader Comments follow-on section contains one questionably vulgar word used twice.
