This study aimed at understanding the phenomenon of permanent living in caravans. The central questions where; how did it come that the camping inhabitants chose to live permanently in caravans? How did they describe their living and the context? How did they describe themselves, the society and others reaction to their choice of living? Empirical data from interviews with seven inhabitants was presented too seek to increase the understanding of the phenomenon. The conclusion of this study was that permanently living in caravans probably could be regarded as a phenomenon, which has arisen in a time of capitalism and the states withdrawal. A time when the freedom seem to be more extensive for some wealthy groups while opposite condition seem to be valid for other not so well-off. The inhabitants describe the living in positive terms with only a few negative aspects. They describe themselves in terms of campingpeople who don’t want to own so much because it is decreasing the freedom. They also thought that they are living in an unjust society where the most vulnerable groups are pressured out in the periphery. Other people’s reaction at their way of living used to be negative in the beginning. (Less)
