At first, I thought the above was a very ugly car cover. Then I noticed metal bar at the base and the fact that the woman is standing inside the “car” while zipping up the door.
It turns out the car cover is really a tent. I heard of urban camping before, but this is taking it to a whole new level. As long as there’s not parking meters near by, I would imagine it’s a pretty cheap way to camp. However, I’m not sure about sleeping on bare concrete.
I doubt the urban car tent would work in Vancouver. We have parking meters everywhere. Also, if you camp on a busy street, the noise level will keep you awake at night.
