This is one family’s tiny cabin they built for their truck. And yes, they’re a family of 5.
It’s a really nice DIY truck cabin that’s actually built stronger and with more insulation than a truck camper. And it’s customized exactly to their needs. Pretty cool, right? What do you think? Would you design/build something like this? Seems like a pretty cool adventure rig too, doesn’t it? You could go almost anywhere! Your thoughts?

A Tiny Cabin On Our Truck For A Family Of 5
I thought you folks may be interested in checking out the little tiny cabin we built for the back of our truck.
We wanted something that could accommodate our family of 5 comfortably for long periods of time and not feel cramped like a traditional truck camper would.
So we set out to build a space that fit us perfectly, it had to have permanent beds, be well insulated, we wanted to keep it simple, 12 volt only for the electrical.
20 liter water jugs make up the water storage system also allowing us to fill up on water anywhere we can find a tap. The toilet is a cassette style chemical toilet that we can empty at any roadside rest stop.
What would a cabin be without a tiny wood stove to keep it cozy warm on the cold autumn and winter nights. The interior is made of mostly reused and repurposed materials. We built our own light fixtures and all have LED lights. The Live edge table has removable legs and hangs on the wall when not in use for more space.
Our big thanks to Matt and family for sharing!🙏
