Super inexpensive alternative housing

My fiance and I are having a terrible time finding an apartment or other traditional living space here in New Jersey, and I am looking for inexpensive alternatives, but am not sure where to start. He is in the Army Reserves and neither of us make a lot, so we would like to save as much money as we can.

I spent several childhood years living in an RV, and it was an amazing experience, but there aren't really any trailer parks in our area… does anyone have any thoughts on other extremely low-budget alternative housing options for us?
