You can live off the dock and have permanent anchor for free. Less chance of a nigger robbing you too.

All that combined is still cheaper than renting a house tho (in most areas)

for free
most* marinas charge by the foot. lets say for a live aboard the min size would be a 25 to 27 footer. the price per foot varies but lets say 45 per foot. and the cost of the boat ...idk 5k for a shitty one. also every marina i know of requires insurance of at least 1 mil liability. if he is in a cold spot he will need to upgrade the boat with heat. also most marines require sewage for live aboard. not as cheap as most ppl think. granted its cheaper than an apartment in some where like london or san fran

People who say "Boat" usually don't know what they're talking about. A boat big enough to live aboard is gonna cost about $60,000 and up. Unless you're an experienced sailor, you're looking at a small yacht (35 ft and larger), and to fuel it, it's gonna cost about $3,000 to fill the fuel tanks. The engines(s) need to be tip-top shape, or you can end up very fucked. The seals where the shaft goes through the hull to the props have to be re-packed every few years. Those are often the boats you'll end up buying, something that needs to be re-fit somehow. A slip is $500 a month and up. People say you can anchor anywhere, but you can't. You'll get hassled by the coast guard if they see you there for very long, and they have the right to come aboard for inspections. So, you can make a floatilla at an off-shore buoy, people split those costs and it's cheaper but theres no privacy when you're tied to other boats. Theres no power, and no sewage pump-out. Those costs can add up and most people find it's worth the dock fees. You have storms to contend with, and they happen pretty regularly where the climate is warm enough to live aboard year round. The trade off with all that is the fuel. Moving to the leeward side of an island to escape a storm requires fuel. Then the regular maintenance is a giant hassle and you'll spend a lot of time dicking around with fix-ups. All in all, it's cheaper to rent an apartment, and a lot less work. I understand the romance of a boat, but you have to know what you're doing. It takes years to become a knowledgeable boat person.

its regional...ie, prices will be in the same ball park on the great lakes like Detroit or buffalo
but go to the Florida keys or Miami or Los Angles and it could be 3x the cost.

I live in Toronto, so it's hard to live full time in a van. But I had a dodge caravan when I was younger, and lived in that all summer. I also couch surfed/showerd at friends places. I had a job at the time making 50 k a year but instead of paying minium $1000 rent, all my money went towards booze and drugs. It wasn't much fun in the summer when it was really fucking hot.

John Campbell

Yep, enough room for all your clothes and small things, a week's worth of groceries, get free ice at the cafeteria probably. Keep it warm with a 12v electric blanket.

You can get a dependable old truck for $1,500.

Vans are cool, and a lot easier to deck out than boats. If you can find an extended van, you can yank the seats out and do all sorts of groovy shit inside.

Your best option might be to look for roommates, OP. If you split rent across 3 people, it's a bit cheaper.

Also, unless you're being educated on mommy' and daddy's money, don't get a stupid degree. Go for something with actual earning potential.

exactly. this is why you need to acquire a skill set that isnt ez to replace. i can see the value in a trade skill like underwater welding or a line man, but the vast majority of "skilled trade" are replaceable labor jobs that go to the cheapest bidder. how many druggy roofers and painter are there? like everyone ive met

because nobody makes money in the mexican fields anymore. Mexicans took those and drove wages, way, way, way down. Lower than you'd think.

So they make by selling drugs. That's why all white construction workers are also dealers.

If the town youre going to is big enough there are probably hostel/communes set up for cheap

Search for "efficiency" apartment, and get a job the second you make it to town before all the midclass kids realize their parents college fund isn't enough for fun

I also am selling a freshly done camper van in Iowa if you have some cash and can figure out where to park it

Aus fag here.
Lived in a van for a few months travelling.
Make sure you have 1-2grand back up.
If the vehicle is damaged or needs a mechanic you lose your home and transport.
Also have a push bike or skateboard as a 2nd mode of transport.
Think about how you cook and what food you eat, not having an oven or certain appliances is annoying.
Invest in a good small gas BBQ and mount a propane bottle to the outside of the van.
Australia is different to the U.S so some things might not apply.
We have a large amount of cheap caravan parks, or camp grounds close to towns, it's very easy to live mobile here.

Don't fall into the trap of short term savings over long term true cost of ownership.

For example, if you purchase a $165K home in a decent neighborhood, but in 10 years you can sell it for $220K, then after accounting for inflation and closing costs you actually end up really only paying on the interest of the loan, which recently was as low as 3%.

Lets say by contrast you purchase a motorhome for $42K, but after 10 years it has various mechanical issues and can only be sold for $10K, even though you had all the sacrifices of such a tiny space, you lost $32K over that time and probably had higher maintenance costs.

Your best combination of low cost of living with low startup cost if you have poor credit is going to be getting an apartment with roommates with a shared living area.

Lincoln Gonzalez

don't forget the opportunity cost. people shit talk renting, but you lock yourself into a region by purchasing a house.

Check up on youtube on stealthcampers. People turn a van like a Mercedes Sprinter into quite sweet homes. And the thing about them is that they look like a normal vehicle parked there so you won't have police knocking on and niggers trying to break in. Check out some videos, there are a lot of genious ideas you can get from people.

Step 1. Don't fall for the college/university scam. Unless you're going for STEM, it's not worth it, and if you're going for the T in STEM, you don't even need to go, you just need to get good at it.

Does anyone you know own one big enough to live on? They'd often be happy with some token amount of rent to cover expenses and know it’s safe.
When the America’s cup was on, a friend here ended up on a big boat for nearly 12 months with expenses paid so the owner knew it was being looked after. Outstanding fun, got to play super-rich ha ha

Any kind of degree in humanities is a waste, even at a PhD level. Virtually every non-STEM/medicine/finance/law degree does not even break even on the lifetime earning advantage versus not having debt and taking advantage of compound interest from a young age rather than student loan payments.
