Budget Stealth Box Truck Living: Recycled Materials


Rhett travelled the US on his motorcycle for couple of years before meeting Ashley. He lived with just three backpacks of stuff he could fit on his ride! With Ashley came two adorable dogs, so they upgraded to this amazing box truck which they transformed into a home on a budget.

Ashley calls Rhett a “tinkerer,” saying he loves to see what he can do with the fewest materials possible. You see that clearly in their minimalist build, which includes a stand-up desk on a pulley system and a bed that folds down with some Rhett engineering. The whole home uses recycled materials to make a perfect space for the couple and their dogs.

    Natalie, this was so fun to watch! Tbeir layout makes perfect sense, and tbeir goofy, properly spoiled dogs 🐕 are too cute. That said, I would never choose to live in a box truck without side windows or a skylight.
    It’s tbeir home, and it works for them. They’re a sweet, smart fun couple..
    I’d love to have them for neighbors. 💕👫🚐🐕🐕👍

      So glad you enjoyed it! Yes I think I would need some windows myself, but they certainly are a great couple. So happy they found something that works for them.

    Its great with nice detail solution but for me a home of this size should have a bathroom because I don’t like to shower somewhere else.
    Without windows yo can park that thing almost everywhere.

    Comfort is first and looks comfortable. This is a real cool idea and I like it. Cool happy dogs and the couple looks very happy. Loved the video.
