>ELKHART — Eric Krause remembers the meeting Forest River Inc. officials held with employees inside the company’s Plant No. 40.

The RV plant’s production line, which churns out diesel motor homes, was down to operating four days a week, Krause said.

The Maucks are not unique. About five camping lots away, a Christmas tree glowed outside the door of a motor home with lights draped across the front.

If you’re not as lucky, here’s what you get in exchange for an interrupted night’s sleep on a wedge of parking lot: The beach is still just steps away; you’re within walking distance of the charming village of Carpinteria; and there are hiking and biking trails with beautiful views of the Santa Ynez Mountains on one side and the Channel Islands on the other.
