I like this guy, and his truck, and his house.

He had a friend who needed a project towards a degree in architecture, a brother who’s a boatbuilder, and a daughter who sails. And a girlfriend who can swing a hammer. Oh, did I mention his 71 Big Bolt?

That was interesting. I have thought about doing this with a short school bus, but will probably never happen.

Do a search for "House Trucks".
Here is just one site.

My way is far easier: Remove seats, throw in a cot, a cooler and the portable genny (for the coffeemaker) ... done!

I thought real Marines just chewed the beans and drank some boiling water.

Better yet, surplus sleeping pad and rucksack, bivy sack in case it rains, poncho liner. Add comfort items like food, water filter and walking stick. Map, compass and a canteen cup for a cooking pot. Travel by canoe or shoe leather.

Most important, credit card for the hotel room.

I was a professional camper long enough, and now that I am old enough, I don't need to bivy on the ground anymore unless I absolutely have to .... which I do not, thanks to the great folks at Quigley smile As well as my grand Bolt Bro Billy Marlow who lets me have the Guest Room in the Self-propelled Mansion when we go on adventures together. For the record, I do share the grand guest suite with Grigg III quite often, and have shared it with Sweet and Ed Pruss now and then. But I try to avoid that as they both snore a lot. But when I do, I get the actual comfy bed -- they have to sleep on the floor. RHIP ... smile

Darn John, last year, the Griggs let me bunk inside the house, on the stairs!
And I thought I was lucky! dance
The creases on my body went away after a couple hours after I woke up.
