Airplanes, cars, psychiatric hospitals? While some may at some point sleep and eat within these, I don't really think that most in the world, including the severely mentally ill and the homeless, would associate such with "lodging". At this rate, just about anything and anywhere could be considered "lodging" what about subway stations, alleys and underpasses? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 00:23, 13 January 2008 (UTC)
I agree, why not park benches, underpasses, trees, bushes, and so on. Stepp-Wulf (talk) 02:29, 30 March 2009 (UTC).
I also agree. A list of lodgings should focus on what people think of as lodgings, not every space in which you can lodge. Perhaps this article should be renamed to "List of lodgeable spaces" instead?
A list of lodging types should contain the different types of inns(hostels, hotels, motels, etc.). Airplanes does offer rooms with beds these days and might still be appropriate, and also trains with sleep cars. Tents, campers, and trailers are a bit questionable but perhaps not trailer parks? Institutionalized(Hospitals, prison, monestaries) living shouldn't be here, and not the different types of locations in which you can sleep in public, like bus stops and cardboard boxes. (I am a bit surpriced no one added lodging under bridges.) Caves and shelters for homless does not belong. And I don't think permanent dwellings like appartments and bungalos does either. Baracks, dormitories, nurserly homes and Tree House should be gone too.
Also, the article really shouldn't say "...Items on this list should be types of lodging, however loosely defined." It makes an interesting list but a poor encyclopedia article. And if it should say that at all, it should be here on the talk page and not in the article itself. Actually, I'll rephrase that right away.--Nakerlund (talk) 23:50, 21 April 2009 (UTC)
What is the name of the rectangular buildings that are used for housing workers at construction sitesm and that are often chained together both horizontally and vertically, and each single unit can easily be hauled on the back of a truck. __meco (talk) 11:58, 2 March 2008 (UTC)
