OK. Here I go…
To start I am homeless with a job. I’ve become a homeless veteran statistic. I currently live out of my storage unit and pickup truck. Due to COVID in South Florida, the gyms have been either closed or the showers have been locked up. I haven’t had a decent shower in over a month (gross, I know.) Food planning is difficult without refrigeration. And you can imagine how humid and hot it is here so at night I try and roll the windows down but then you have mosquitoes. I have mesh screens for the windows but it still a hot sticky mess when its not raining. When it is raining it gets so hot being naked doesn’t even help.
I have been looking for a van but I don’t have much savings (about $4K), so I cant afford a completed van build. I could do payments on a non-converted van but it would need to be at a low rate, so most dealers are out. And personal sellers are not willing to do a payment plan with someone they don’t know (understandable.)
After getting the van I plan to sell my truck and use those funds to either pay down the van payments or use it for the build.
Any advice for the hopeless, the desperate and distressed?
