This is a DIY box truck turned motorhome.
Outside, you’ll notice a standard white box truck, but this one has a door and windows to let in natural light. The home includes plumbing and electrical just like a standard R.V.
When you go inside, you’ll find the builder inserted “below the floor” storage to keep all your needs underneath the bed. There is also a fridge/freezer. When finished, you can sleep in the twin bed and store clothing in a nearby dresser while travelling around the country in this DIY motorhome! There’s even a shower created from a typical clear shower curtain.

Would love this! Great job!
I love this conversion. Wish there was enough room for my cat to stay all day while I work, but a little small for that. If it was just me…..awesome ides. Wish I could do something like this. The only thing i did not see, or missed it was the toilet, :).
What is the headroom? I am 5’7″ tall.
Cheap, eh? I don’t think so. I saw the shower, but no loo. What do you do, go in the shower, then wash it down the drain?
Really? Do yourself a favor and learn how to do some research. Most set ups like this use a portable bucket type toilet with a regular seat and some sort of absorbent material that is contained in a bag that can be disposed of. Being snotty is not what we are here for.
Yep, really. After all, no photo, or mention, of a loo. And I imagine I have done more research than most. You can clean up satisfactorily with a pan of hot water, a washcloth, and a dishpan to stand in; so a shower is second to a indoor loo any day of the week. I was going to make a composting toilet, until I found one for $13, new; as cheap as I could make one, or less, and much faster. By the way, a loo can be stored in a shower too.
Nice job ! For a tiny unit it seems like the space is well utilized. I was wondering about a toilet as well, didn’t see even a porta-potti. One of the great features is that it is pretty stealthy, quite compact, & allows you to roll with a low profile. Hope he changed the tires, there is an age limit regardless of tread appearance. I guess cheap depends on your vantage point. I wonder what the total cost was ?
Probably uses a common bucket toilet like in a pop up. About $30 at Walmart or any camping place. Hides in a cabinet or for a single user could be anywhere just not in sight of the camera! .They even make a pop up tent that can be used for these or showers; I have seen them for about the same price on eBay. Just a tall tent that sets up in a few secs.
Was gonna do that once with my ’66 econoline … then came a 32′ …Wrong! …… Finally, my beautiful ’99 Roadtrek 190 … Perfect condition and always garage kept … never will another, duplicate that machine … We in love ….. Rich Miller … Live Oak, Fl.
but i really admire the engineering and satisfaction of doing whatever you want !!! Great !
I but a 1993 box truck. The only door is the roll up door on the very back. Other than that there is a gate behind the driver and passenger cab open to walk through to the back. I’m just curious as to what I can do with my space. I’ve got 14′ to work with. My goal is to you just build as cheap as possible and make it with everything I’m going to need to be totally off grid. What’s your take on spray foam insulation versus typical insulation? I want a convertible bathroom. I’ve seen where people take a simple cabinets and raise the top and sides to become a shower / bathroom.
