One of the best places I've found to urban boondock is in a light industrial area in a large employee parking lot. There are lots of open parking spaces and no one to bother you. Most people seeing it think it's one of the employees who is either going camping or is getting something fixed. The only two issues is sometimes it can get noisy from truck traffic early in the morning and because of the few people about there can be a security issue.

OK, I have to ask -- how do you keep from snoring which would blow your cover?

Tamid, I like your term Urban Boondocking.

I'd be concerned about exposure to or risk of robbery and or assault or exploited by other transients if I were "camped" out on a full time basis.. in an out-of-the-way location in a vehicle not really marked as a camper

While looking at another post the question was asked how to Stealth park while traveling with a travel trailer and it is quite evident that it is a hard thing to do.
I may be updating my tow vehicle and was considering something like an all white van that could be used without the travel trailer to overnight without arousing too much suspicion. I would like maybe some links on ones that are complete but starting from scratch with a blank van would also work..... I would like to have a furnace a bed and a place for a porta potti if possible. So any links for complete vehicles or places to buy the cabinets etc or just any good links you think might be helpful would be appreciated. Good gas mileage would be a big plus....or diesel etc
Thanks for any help

Joe
I've often thought that a Dodge Sprinter (with diesel) would be a sweet vehicle for this sort of thing. High enough to stand up in, gets low or mid 20s mpg.

Stealth camping to me is while traveling to be able to pull in a parking lot or similar place Hospital, 24 hour stores etc. and park in and among the other vehicles without sticking out or giving that "I'm sleeping in here look"
Out of the way places i would feel more comfortable looking like a camper (put out chairs, ..... I even thought of magnetic signs with flowers or something to make it look like a camper as i agree with what you say.

I spoke with a person on another forum that has a "Sprinter Diesel" that is getting 27MPG Hwy. and would really like to have one of them but looking them up online they are very expensive.... but if something came up for a reasonable price i would jump on it. I have a friend who is a dodge salesman and he said the sprinter started of as a "Freightliner", then "Dodge" now it's being distributed by "Mercedes"........... 27 mpg and able to stand up would put this vehicle to the front of the line for me.... still going to keep my casita but just looking for something when mostly driving to a destination or weekend trip as i do not like Motel's.
