His Second Incredible Box Truck Build

Rory’s main job is working as a ski instructor, but that means living in fancy ski resort towns where the rent prices are climbing up astronomically. To avoid that, he decided to go tiny and build a box truck conversion. His first rig was great, but he found ways to improve it and built another one that met his needs even more.

This $60,000 rig includes a larger-than-queen bed, rooftop deck, giant skylights, and full off-grid capabilities. His corner office space is probably the most innovative part of his build, along with his bathroom with a little heater that transforms it into a shower! Tell us what your favorite part of his truck conversion is in the comments.

Awesome Multi-Layer Box Home on a Flatbed

The dinette is elevated, and the office is even higher up.

A special cubby for his legs lets Rory sit here to work.

There are super long drawers underneath his bed for storage.

  • Rory built out his first box truck conversion so he could avoid rent in the ski resort areas where he works as an instructor, and then he loved it enough that he upgraded to a bigger one.
  • It took him about 2 years and $60,000 to get this rig to where it is today.
  • He wanted a number of unique elevations in order to make dedicated spaces without a bunch of walls.
  • Between solar, propane, and a large water tank, he’s able to stay off grid for quite a while.
  • His bed is actually larger than a queen because of the box truck’s unique design.
