His $5K Truck Camper Tiny Home

This post contains affiliate links.

Lance sold everything he owned on Facebook Marketplace when he decided he was tired of the 9 to 5 and ready for a new adventure! He built a DIY camper on the back of his truck and spent only $5k on the materials. He was careful to buy things second-hand and at the Dollar Tree in order to keep costs down.

You can see his whole conversion on Instagram, where he shared all the details. He has a fixed bed, a micro kitchen, and lots of beautiful artwork he did himself! He makes money helping others make their own rigs and teaching the occasional art class.
