Stealth camping in vehicles.
If you are a long term vehicle dweller, chances are your van is quite conspicuous. This is ok if you are planning on living in a permanent park up or travelling around the country staying in places for short periods of time. But if you are a city dweller and require your van to be parked in towns, there are a few things you can do when picking a vehicle to live in.
Plain, slightly shabby vans with no windows would be the best option. They do not give the impression of having valuable contents and tools hidden inside, and they do not scream ‘motor home’! which generally means that you can park up in many places much easier. Like car parks, residential streets and industrial estates. A plain van can still be converted into a beautiful home.
Doing all noisy activities during the day, in supermarket car parks or lay-bys is a key to remaining undetected. Make sure you drive to your chosen park up spot in the evening, preferable just before going to sleep and stay quiet. Leave in the morning and it is unlikely you will be disturbed by anybody.
You can park anywhere where you are usually allowed to park, so long as there is not a ‘no parking’ sign, than you should be fine. A car is a lot easier to hide than a van, but with so many windows, it is also a lot more conspicuous. If you are in a car than chose a really quiet and secluded area to spend the night.
There are no laws in England to state that you cannot sleep in your vehicle and therefore so long as you are respectful, you will not create trouble. See our stealth camping section for tips on choosing locations and taking care of the countryside around you. Enjoy!
