Without a home how would you have a garage to work on your SMB/van/RV?

Haha! SO TRUE....

(Could someone possibly tow along a badass little enclosed trailer....that somehow contained everything required (i.e., an expandable temporary tube-frame/vinyl sheeting "garage space," tools, generator, power equipment, hardware....) -- and thus have a mobile Camper-Van repair shop?)

It does seem that the carefree #vanlife myth hinges on the idea that your van-home is perpetually maintenance/trouble-free....

That's why relatives, friends, and family have garages and driveways. Oh, almost forgot to add forum members.

That's why you better choose a domestic gasser and not a VW bus as so many of the young hipsters are doing! VW buses are really amazing as long as you are a mechanic, carry lots of spares and are happy to deal with break downs at anytime. They never seem to happen on sunny days.

My dream is a big building on a piece of land somewhere in the mountains for keeping my van or whatever and all my possessions inside, furnished into a studio apartment on one end for her appeasement. Live on the road in the van as much as possible but always have a base camp. By my calculations I could probably do this in a rural area with a 40x80' building for $100k or so.
