2007 Mitsubishi Fuso Box Truck Conversion with Awesome Rear Deck Area

The main attraction of this box truck and where it’s become quite popular with the nomad community is our unique back door system with a 60/40 split. This allows us to push open the top and greet the morning without getting out of bed. We installed 250 pound gas shocks so it’s quite strong and can even lift two bikes that we sometimes store on the back fork mounts. When you lower the bottom you get a large deck thats perfect for potluck dinner parties, yoga or concerts in nature. You’ll also notice we have a window on the door, in the kitchen and on the back door. These have all had white perforated vinyl put over them for privacy and most people can’t even tell they’re windows. Shhhh nothing to see here, just a work truck.

The truck itself is a 2007 Mitsubishi Fuso FE 140. Do a little research and you’ll find these are fantastic trucks and the 2007 was the last of the great pre emissions engine, meaning no DEF and no DPF. It had one previous owner in San Diego where it was used to deliver skylights since new. It was babied and meticulously maintained as you can see in the maintenance logs. We purchased it with 180,000 miles and it now sits at 220,000 with many years of life left in it as I too baby this truck and love driving it. Even my girlfriend loves driving this truck. It has a wheelbase of 152” which is about the same as a 4 door F150 but due to the cab over body type has an even better turning radius. We’re still surprised how easy it is to drive around and are sure you’ll love it too.

The box is 16ft long, 8 foot tall and 8 foot wide. We’ve done a unique build here and raised the floor 1 foot to allow for ample under storage including access from both the driver and passenger sides. This gives us more space and the ability to haul a lot of stuff – which we loved every second of.

On the roof we have 800 watts of solar that get stored in our 600 amps of Renogy hybrid gel batteries (much better than AGM and much less $ than Lithium) We have a 3000 watt victron multi plus inverter/charger with outlets run all throughout the box and one exterior in the rear.

In the kitchen you’ll see that we have one of the largest countertops with a 28” flip up for even more room. Our countertop is quite unique as the flowers were pressed into books over the last year of our travels and then poured by master expoxy pourer Kirk Allan Originals. You can see his work in various galleries around Phoenix and he poured the bar at the Mangey Moose in the Tetons. We have a Furrion 3 burner stove with a 17” oven in which we cook just about every single meal and love it. The copper sink is small but works really well for this space and could be expanded if somebody wanted to but it’s perfect for us. There is also a Furrion range hood that vents to the outside which really helps keep the cooking smells and smoke to a minimum.

Instead of doing the typical composting toilet, we opted for a 31 gallon black tank and honestly love it. There are so many free places to dump your tank and it only takes 2 minutes so it’s never been an issue for us. Sure you can cap it and put in a compost toilet if you like.

You’ll love the massive house sized shower with dual shower heads and large skylight above. We have 40 gallons of water outside and plenty of room to add more if you like. 40 gallons typically got us around 2 weeks no problem. We have an on demand hot water heater by Gerard, worth every penny! There is also a 33 gallon grey tank for the sink and shower pan.

This box truck conversion is designed for full-time living, with plenty of room and storage for multiple people. It’s a turn-key house on wheels with great stealth abilities. It gets about 12 miles per gallon and it was lived in for two years while traveling coast to coast.
