Full-timing in San Francisco area

I may be jumping the gun, but does anyone have an ideas on where to park full-time in the San Francisco area? Would like to keep the commute to less than two hours round trip. I realize that rent is high in the bay area.

Chikusco,

Many live in RV parks in the Delta near Rio Vista and commute to SF daily. At Pittsburg you can get on BART and ride it into SF and back limiting the driving commute. The delta is very pastoral, peaceful, quiet, etc. Most people are very laid back.

Digging up an old thread here to see if anyone has any other advice. I'm planning on living full time in SF and have to commute daily to SOMA.

jmtandem - The delta looks beautiful but it's a 2.5hr commute by public transit :/

Anyone have any other tips? A acquaintance of mine ended up finding a gas station in SF that will let him rent a spot w/ electricity. I'm thinking about trying to do the same...

I'm also thinking about a co-op trailer park in an industrial warehouse / yard space like this: Small Warehouse with Fenced Yard Area!!

Basically, I'd go in on that lease with several other RV owners and we'd set up wifi, have a shower there, etc.

Has anyone seen anything like that before? I imagine there are zoning / regulatory hurdles I'd have to overcome.

I too am very interested in this topic, in 2015 we plan on staying in San Fran for about 3 months in our trailer.

Have been off the forums for almost a year - too busy full timing!! This urban camping idea has been rolling around my head as an actual project to commercially develop. That is totally over my head, but the concept was appealing to me. . did your more realistic co-op approach go any where? cheers n

I'm up in Vallejo, and there's more than a couple of somewhat defunct trailer parks that would be great for an airstream or tiny house community. It's a (very civilized) one hour ride on the ferry to SF from V-town, and not pretentious at all. Food for thought.
