Rating: 3.4/5 (15 votes cast)

This documentary addresses the demise of many who decide that they simply cannot afford the luxury of living in rented accommodation and opt to live in an RV (recreational Vehicle) with all the associated difficulties and hassles.

Documentarytube contacted Zack Lobisch, the artist responsible for the documentary to get his perspective of the video he had produced. This is what he had to say:


“ This documentary addresses certain aspects of living in a Recreational Vehicle in a congested city environment. With a high increase in poverty as a result of country wide recession, some people are forced to live in this difficult, and desperate manner. This film will take you on a short journey through the life of one person’s account of his experience living on the City Streets of Urban America. High Class Homeless is entertaining, educational and enlightening to anyone curious about this lifestyle, and the things that go along on a day to day basis. I hope You enjoy my movie. ZL “

This of course is a very understated account by Zack of what is in fact a very classy representation of a less than satisfactory lifestyle.  The documentary addresses many of the traumas encountered by those choosing, or being forced to chose this way of life. In a further email he has informed Documentarytube that he will be having a public showing in San Diego CA in the next few weeks (Oct 2012) and he will see how it all goes then. “I have an audience already so should be fun.” he told us.

The reality is that he becomes sick of being dirty, sick of moving, sick of being cold and sick of being moved on by Police and authorities for no real reason …all this and still making every effort to hold down full time employment. Some feat for sure.

This documentary video by artist Zack Lobisch not a second hand review of someone elses life…this is him showing it as it was and is in a recreation vehicle at the side of a busy noisy road with real concern for his safety.

With poverty levels rising and jobs fewer by the minute in 2012 many are considering this option…it is worth watching this to understand the complications. Because this is a short version of the video, documentarytube asked if it were possible to upload the full length version?

Zack responded:

“Thanks for the interest in my documentary. I think I would be able to upload the full length video. Its 40 minutes. I would just use my other, more powerful computer. It might be a few weeks, but i am definitely interested. Also I will be making much more content with the same premise. I will be having a public showing in San Diego CA in the next few weeks. I will see how it all goes. I have an audience already so should be fun. Zack”

So we look forward to getting the full version and airing it for you.

    Great movie Zack,
    Hopefully the Outer Banks/Hatteras portion of your current journey will be more chill. Dig the new digs. Well built. Well done. Glad to run into you. Status Quo is very passe and I’m always happy to see someone pursuing anything that compliments their soul. May the road rise to meet you and the fuzz ever be off your back. Cheers man.

  3. MizWilma says:

    Hi Zack, I enjoyed watching your doc. I think you are handsome, fit and sexy…. Nicole :) xx

  4. we’re in ga so san diego might be a stretch lol but we just saw your video and we were like hey our name is highclass and homeless and this documentary has the same name

  5. were are you at? This video was filmed in San Diego. I was thinking of doing a public showing of the longer version at a club/venue in San Diego, and also having an art show, some art having to do with the film. I can Give details if you are interested. Zack


  7. If you have a permanent residence in San Diego even with roomates you will be paying 600 a month for a decent place. Living like this cost me 300 a month including food. So, yes financially it makes sense. The difficulty is maintaining a job as well. Living like this is physically and mentally draining. Im sorry Mk Jn fell asleep maybe he can afford to do what ever he wants, Good for him,

  8. Mk Jn says:


  9. Question: Did this make sense? in other words, did you enjoy the freedom being on the road like this might offer, save money, live cleaner, simpler? Would you recommend it for anyone else? Your vehicles have to be ‘sound’ that must be a considerable expense for both. There are still cheap ways to live in permanent residences, like roomate situations etc. BOTTOM LINE IS?(yay or nay)

  10. Wow got a “dislike” 1 out of 125 isnt bad. We have a hater.

  11. David Scott says:

    I have lived that lifestyle for awhile in San Diego. I had a commercial box truck and turned it into a studio apt.. No windows, just a roll up door in the back. I could park on the side of the road in commercial parking and the cops were none the wiser. Only got busted a few times when they spotted me going in and out of the back. OB was a great place to be in the day time. That is when I was single. I’m married now with 2 kids. Boy, do I miss the freedom.

  12. That’s Washington street Skatepark. Difficult but fun.

  13. hijodmaite says:

    Great job on this vid, you’ve got skills my friend! Would of liked to have seen more skating. Where was that skate park?

  14. Silveready1 says:

    I don’t know how you can live this lifestyle, especially in San Diego – The Cops, DMV fees, regulations, Parking enforcement etc.!it’s sad that someone who isn’t being a nuisance or hurting anyone else can’t just live a free lifestyle and be LEFT ALONE by the authorities -Good Luck, and thanks for the vid.
