They're doing you a favor and you didn't realize it.
I'm sure we would get along just fine without the van-dwellers...
But being of a somewhat more libertarian bent than our mild-climate neighbor to the west, we have chosen (up to a point) to live and let live, rather than legislate them out of town. Just don't plan to sleep in your car in Flagstaff.
Now as to the seasonal dwellers in motor coaches that cost more than my house... it's complicated!
