DEFINITION: n. A person who lives in their car because they have lost their home. v. To live in your car.

Pronunciation: otto dwel ler

Sentence: Danny had become an autodweller when his stocks plummeted, the bank foreclosed and he lost his home. He moved his family to the country and parked their family sedan, which became their new home. He was not sure if he were a Dodgelodger, an Autonomad, a Vehiculardomicile, Hyundenizen, or a CarResident...the sedantics did not matter. There were a few advantages to living the gypsy life. They could tour the country, meet new people, try new schools every month and redecoration was an obsolete word to least until the gas ran out!

Etymology: Auto (automobile;4-wheeled motor vehicle; usually propelled by an internal combustion engine) & Dweller (a person who inhabits a particular place)
