YES THE WIND FACTOR AND SPEED REALLY ADDS TO COST. STILL BETTER THEN MOTELS YUK YUK.

I have one - the one thing everyone is forgetting on the gypsy wagon, etc, is how atrocious your gas mileage is.   They were designed for a much slower speed, where wind resistance and gas mileage were not things t factor in.   Luckily, mine is stored where we do several re-enactments, so I can live in wonderful comfort, and not have to really think about how much it took just to get it to that area to begin with - the cost per mile was huge.   So - even the gypsy wagons and variants are going to cost you a lot to move, unless you stick to the school bus design which might be slightly better.

I have been living in a 30' camper for 5 years now and I love it. I own two lots in a lake community. I plan on moving to Florida in another 6 years when I retire with my Scottie terrier and watch the sunset on the beach.

Wish I could see inside the gypsy caravan.  I have a 32' RV that I spend much of my time in near the beach.  LOVE IT!!  I go home to a 2-story, 4 BR house and do nothing but work..  Give me my cozy 240 sq. ft. any day!  My taxes are <$100 a year, the campground dues AND water are $874 a year.  I own my property and my other costs are food, phone, electric and TV.  MUCH cheaper than home.

If it all comes crashing down I figure I can live in my van.  A five gallon paint bucket will make a good toilet.

 look what the banks did to homes? Pile of rocks and sticks along with 6 months of labor=30 years of your life. Now factor in tax repairs banks interest real estate agents...........Do the math morons ! Same reason education and health care are so corrupted ! You are a slave.

Love the gypsy wagon.....I remember when they used to pass through my home town....we had to lock the chicken cups....or they stole our chickens.....

This is fantastic!, I would love to live on a mobile home, it is a dream come true, unfortunately,

I cannot do it, I am over 70 years old, and live alone, and I think it is not very good idea for

an elderly, to travel alone.

I remember when I was a kid in boy scouts one of the leaders had an old school bus converted into a home on wheels. We all always wanted to ride with him. I remember thinking I was going to make one some day. I forgot that dream till seeing this article. I can't wait to start my research !  Love the upper deck idea. Too cool.

Mobile homes.  Awesome.   This will catch on mainstream following the next major economic collapse.  Local governments will have to work double time to figure out how to regulate and tax these structures.  They could wrap up vehicle and home personal property tax all in one lump sum.  Insurance companies too, jackpot!
