Couple’s Cozy Box Truck w/ Lift Bed

Sawyer was going for a run when he had a sudden heart attack. Thankfully, some firefighters found Sawyer and immediately got him the help he needed. That experience was the catalyst that sent him and Courtney on tiny living journey. They watched Craigslist for a while until an inexpensive, local box truck popped up.

They took their time sourcing free and inexpensive items for their build-out and the results are amazing! For just $14k, they have a fully-functional home including a wet bath and elevator bed that allows them to have a bedroom and living room all in one cozy spot. What do you think?
