I was sick of paying exorbitant fees to live in crappy apartments.
Rent keeps rising in my city, but the places available for rent aren’t increasing to match the rate of demand.
I guess there are people moving in from other areas and are causing an existing shortage to blossom into something much worse. When studio apartments started costing the same as two bedroom apartments, I knew things would only get worse as time went on. My salary was barely increasing and wasn’t matching the rising cost of living here. I started looking for a camper to buy, and that way I’d only have to pay to park it somewhere. Otherwise, I’d be downgrading everything and spending a lot less to live week to week. I found a camper within my budget, and used what little money I had left to purchase a window air conditioner for the camper. The a/c in the camper really only cools the driver’s area, it doesn’t do a good job at all with cooling the rest of the interior. But this new window air conditioner that I bought is perfect for this camper. It fits inside my second window almost perfectly, and leaves me one additional window to look out from the back end where my bed and TV are located. I don’t know what other options I had for keeping this thing cool, but I’m at least happy that the solution didn’t take any technical skills or knowledge on my part. The window a/c fit perfectly and I was able to mount it without any random problems.
