Does driveway camping count?

We just finished some remodeling to the S/B home. So we had to spend 4 nights in the TT while the work was being done. Actually, it is stored in a building(garage of it's own) with full hookups.

So can I count these 4 nights as nights camped for the year?

I know this is a stupid question and fully expect stupid answers from(some certain individuals that will remain nameless).

What say you?

Ours is 6 miles away, we stay 5-6 times a year. Sometimes I am on call for work. This allows us to do both camp and be on call$.

I consulted with my legal counsel and found that it is permissible to count those nights unless the nights are spent in a month ending in "Z".
