Traded Their Car for a Box Truck Tiny House

This post contains affiliate links.

Jacob’s sister was driving this box truck as her daily driver but was eager to trade it for his Camry. Once Jacob had the box truck, he and Sam decided it would be great to have their own space and be able to travel. So they spent 8 months of nights and weekends crafting a lovely tiny house.

They chose to have a convertible bed that stays in dinette mode during the day and a galley kitchen with a propane stove and tiny sink. While they only use it in emergencies, they have a 24×24 wet bath as well as a micro closet for hanging clothing. What do you think?
