Is living in a car a problem in AZ? Does anyone know the ARS regarding what a person can "live" in? Just curious

Laws on that subject (sleeping in cars) are generally city ordinances, not state laws.

Notably city ordinances do not trump state and federal laws.

Which is why it's not uncommon to find ordinances like the one in LA unconstitutional. I was out of town last week in CA, and there was a story in the local paper about the effect of the ruling on that city's ordinance. I suspect that several cities in CA may have similar ordinances, but I don't know about AZ cities.

As far as I can look up there are no ARS laws covering living in an automobile. Some cities may have some under loitering ordinances.
You may find it difficult to maintain auto insurance as most auto insurance companies require a permanent address in order to quote costs for that zip code area.
