Man, talk about a heart-wrenching and inspiring story! Andrew Muse left home after high school and hit the road. Eventually he saved up for a truck and truck camper which he and his dog, Booter, used to travel the country and live in all kinds of amazing places.
But on a trip home, he got in a horrible car crash that totaled his home, destroyed all his belongings, and sadly, killed his dog.
Somehow, despite having lost everything, Andrew got back on his feet and spent nearly two years building the most incredible truck home! He took his time to make sure this next rig was the best yet. Now he, his girlfriend, and their dog Kicker travel and enjoy all kinds of adventure sports, which he documents on his YouTube channel here.
You’ll love the video tour from Jenna at Tiny House Giant Journey which you can watch at the end of the post.

I watched this a little bit ago. It was so sad that he lost his dog on top of losing everything else, but he bounced back.
Ya what a devastating loss!
What an awesome build. I love how he made it as much his furry companion’s home as his own. I hope they both go far in life.
This should be a primer for all Highschool ages…Set a goal, have a dream, don’t miss out on life…It applies to male and female with adjustments for friends and family help when needed and can apply even to other interests besides the obvious death wish group(parasail, snowboarders). We have girls in Vans to this offroad statement vehicle masterpiece. Poin for the youngsters, don’t wait for dreamed of wealth to grasp the gift of travel…He started with a $200 VW Golf…There is a life lesson there if you just look. Don’t wait until you are too old to live it.
Wow! Incredible story and incredible camper. You go, dude!
Great build and story. Earthroamer have a 6 digit price tag on something like this. Well thought and done. Bill is right, when you have this dream just do it. Life is to short and when you wait to long it may be to late Live your dream.
Ya I think having his whole life upended like he did really pushed him to realize how short life is!
