you have an RV, your not homeless. You have a roof over your head where you can climate control. homeless is living under a bridge or in a culvert. you are jobless and i am sure you will find your way out.

Exactly. Don't think of yourself as a homeless person; think of yourself as a regular person that temporarily doesn't have a permanent residence. There's a very subtle, and very important, difference in both these mindsets. One will lead you back to a nice, comfortable apartment— in due time. The other will lead you to finding a shaded spot under the nearest bridge.

That choice is up to you.

Sincerely,
someone who didn't have a permanent address a decade ago but is better-off than most people today.

Lived in an RV for years. Other than needing a PO Box for mail delivery, it wasn't a major deal. I parked it in a trailer park and paid my monthly rent like everybody else.

It is a very strange situation to be in. I have always been industrious and self-motivated. However when I have tried to do freelancing instead of getting a steady paycheck I have always found the stress to be too much. The security of a steady paycheck, even if it is a shitty paycheck, is very comforting. The way I see it, the "hustle" is endless and gets you nowhere. Over the years, seeing homeless people, it's often crossed my mind that "There but for the grace of God go I."

Yeah, lots of people live in RVs in trailer parkers, but aren't considered homeless. It's just another way of living. Not that I am trying to trivialize his situation. Losing your jobs, it's tough.

If someone sleeps in a small sedan are they homeless? I imagine that would still be a lot more comfortable than living under a bridge.
