    upscale homeless shelter

    Hmmm...


    A mobile homeless shelter designed by Paul Elkins The 225-pound shelter is tiny and has no room to stand, it provides everything you need, including a kitchen, rest/sleeping area, and makeshift washroom, and it can be easily carted around from street to street. The roof also acts as a raincatcher, and a tank collects water for later use. An overflow feature lets excess water drain to the ground.

    That would be great on a camping trip...for one person. You could get two and each have your own private room.

    Looks like it is a mobile home (a mouse home if you will). As a result, that guy is not homeless.

    As a portable mobile living space that little cupcake is The Cat's Meow in my book. HUA That rig looks like it would fit a 1/4T truck with very little modifying.

    It sure would be nice if the OP could explain where the sleeping rack was located. It kinda looks like if the sink side was at 3 o'clock the rack would be midway down at 12 o'clock. It looks like a storage shelf above the bunk. It's all very well thought out


    So Where in Sam Hill is the link OP???

    If a homeless person could afford one of these, couldn't they just put that money towards renting an apartment? Or towards a bottle of Wild Irish Rose..

    Sorry no link... Just a pic, what you see is what I got.

    Sleeping rack? The floor (with brown cushions) is the "bed."

    Yeah, I got tapatalk, too. So what?

    Some "Crazy old fool in smelly old clothes" will probably buy it.
