This box truck conversion story is a guest submission.

Hello, My name is Bill Cogar II and I live in Sutton, West Virginia, USA.

I am a Boilermaker by trade and I have to travel for my work. Most of my work comes as an emergency outage when a power plant suddenly comes off line due to a break down of the steam generating boiler.

Those types of outages can last as little as one day or turn into several days or weeks. Lodging on short notice can be difficult to obtain and with the uncertainty of the job length, one never really knows how long they are going to need a bed and a place to shower.

Some I’ve worked with, move in and out of a room every day until the job is done. I’ve kept track of the cost of the build and by using what some of my co-workers pay for lodging, I estimate this vehicle has paid me back over three times now, not to mention the convenience of having it on “ready stand-by” when a job comes along.

I keep track of the number of days away from home and right now I’m at about 600 nights of habitation in my truck. My cost of living this way usually runs around 5-10% of my take home pay on a given job. Boilermakers rarely get a per-diem so your lodging, food and travel come right off the top of your take-home. I try and keep as much as possible.

What you will see in the following pictures is what I built to live in to make these outages a lot more bearable.

This is a DIY box truck turned motorhome.

Outside, you’ll notice a standard white box truck, but this one has a door and windows to let in natural light. The home includes plumbing and electrical just like a standard R.V.

When you go inside, you’ll find the builder inserted “below the floor” storage to keep all your needs underneath the bed. There is also a fridge/freezer. When finished, you can sleep in the twin bed and store clothing in a nearby dresser while travelling around the country in this DIY motorhome! There’s even a shower created from a typical clear shower curtain.

Please enjoy, learn more, and re-share below. Thank you!
