Bantha: Full-Time Overlanding in a 6×6 Military Vehicle


Now here’s something you don’t see everyday. This couple bought and converted a M1087fmtv (a military vehicle) into their tiny house on wheels — it’s the only vehicle of its kind in civilian possession (at the time of publication). And it’s incredible!

The slide-outs give them 14 feet of width inside, and they installed an amazing electric elevator bed so there’s no climbing or stairs. They chose a sparse, industrial decor inside, but it’s exactly what they wanted and fits their personalities. They didn’t sacrifice on a bathroom either — they have a large standing shower and a toilet.

They chose this vehicle because it can go where RVs can’t, and they are enjoying living fulltime going to hard-to-drive locations and seeing nature. Check out the full video tour from Tiny Home Tours below.

This is their kitchen area, and there’s no propane in the vehicle.

    I love it. A 6 wheel drive that can go about anywhere. The slide outs are fantastic and this looks better than many smaller tiny homes. A Preppers dream! I would not be happy with the gas/diesel mileage but otherwise I am impressed!

    Great conversion and very well thought. Functional solid industrial style. I like the slides and elevator bed which are providing the so much needed space for tiny living.
    Well done.
