Ford Flophouse Tiny House on a Truck

This is a Ford flophouse tiny house on a truck which gives us a whole new idea of tiny homes on wheels.

Outside, you’ll notice it looks like a very standard tiny home, complete with pine shingles, white trim, an American flag, and a beautiful red door. What makes it unique? It’s sitting in the bed of a truck!

When you go inside, you’ll find a full bed against a wall with pretty artwork. The interior is less than 50 sq. feet, making it a very tiny home – nearly half the size of some of the smallest homes we feature. According to the builder, they originally called it the Mopar Mansion because it was built to fit in an old 77 Dodge D100, but was later moved to the Ford. They built it so they could have a fun place to live in while driving cross country. It cost him many hours of labor and $4,000 to build and now it’s for sale for $9,500 and it’s located in Baltimore, MD.

    Well, I like the concept, and the woodworking. Not 100% sure about the wood shingles, but looks good. Also looks too short to stand in, don’t care for that. No loft bed, yay. However, no mention of any cooking area, nor of a loo; got them or not?, seems like there should be enough space. And what’s the panel, or whatever, on the rear? And who is the ‘we’? Everything considered, much more is left unanswered than answered. $4,000 seems excessive, but on the other hand, the same materials would probably be considerably less in my area.

      Yeah it is a little short, I couldn’t stand up in it, buy my girlfriend had no problem. We didn’t have time to finish the cooking area or the bathroom before we left. We used camping gear for that on the trip. The panel on the rear provides an AC outlet, 12 volt outlet, and shore power input. Also the trailer input power plug that charges the battery and powers the turn signals.

      I think in that price tag I included various lighting, power, wires, accessories, as well as all the materials. I’m with you, but building it taught me how really expensive houses (even tiny ones can be).

        How tall is the girlfriend? Looks like it could be tall enough for standing up in but it would be a close call if I could do it or not. Looks nicely built for shorter sized people to live and travel in. Does the window over the bed open for ventilation? Nice as a skylight either way.

          She’s like 4’11” I think. It really is best suited for travel and sleep. Yeah the window over the bed cranks out for nice breezes.

    If I was homeless and someone provided this to me I would be dancing a jig. This is surely much better than many of the facilities provide for people (Opportunity Village Eugene, Quixote Village Olympia) who are transitioning from homeless to home.
    I like the point that the creator of the Ford Flop House had a vision, took action….and shared.

    Yeaph! it reminds me of a customized chevy van I once had. Sleeping and rolling is all I used it for.

    What a wonderful little construction. I have lived in smaller.
    I cant believe the negative comments on here. Like my grandma taught me if you can`t say something nice, say nothing at all.

    I am looking for a tiny house like tihs one, to go in the back of a pickup truck. can this be modified to fit in a different truck bed, and how much does this tiny house lb?

      Hi Tank182, what kind of truck bed are you thinking of. As the article shows, I’m willing to sell my Flophouse and likely for much less than the above price. Email me directly and we can discuss further. All the best! [email protected]
