Although it is very clever and a step up than a sleeping bag and a cardboard box as provides more protection and comfort than, it seem like it would be a below living out of a van and most modern cities would never allow it due to zoning, not to mention health code issues depending on how he collects, stores and disposes of his "personal waste" (and I don't mean takeout containers).       Photo by: AFP / Getty Images
