Retired Policeman Builds Lord of the Ring Inspired Box Truck Conversion

This is the story of a divorced, retired police officer named Glen who converted a van into a Lord of the Rings-inspired tiny home. It turns out that Glen is a very skilled and talented carpenter, as you’ll soon see.

He named the van Radagat, which is the name of a brown wizard from the Hobbit. Inside, the van features a king bed, kitchen, bathroom, wood fireplace, and one of the most incredible interiors in a van you’ll ever see. What do you think of it? Pretty incredible, isn’t it? It’s also pretty stealthy from the outside in that it looks like kind of like an ordinary work truck.

    Oh Alex, typo, the van is called Radagast, not Radagat. Shame on you, pop down to middle earth and beg forgiveness… LOL

    Having said that, wow that is amazing. The carvings using plywood are simply astoundingly good. Who woulda thunk huh?

    I’m thinking of doing my own box truck/bread truck/used commercial truck conversion. I would love to here how he insulated his home. And see the toilet facilities. I think he’s done a great job based on what I can see
