This is a Ford flophouse tiny house on a truck which gives us a whole new idea of tiny homes on wheels.
Outside, you’ll notice it looks like a very standard tiny home, complete with pine shingles, white trim, an American flag, and a beautiful red door. What makes it unique? It’s sitting in the bed of a truck!
When you go inside, you’ll find a full bed against a wall with pretty artwork. The interior is less than 50 sq. feet, making it a very tiny home – nearly half the size of some of the smallest homes we feature. According to the builder, they originally called it the Mopar Mansion because it was built to fit in an old 77 Dodge D100, but was later moved to the Ford. They built it so they could have a fun place to live in while driving cross country. It cost him many hours of labor and $4,000 to build and now it’s for sale for $9,500 and it’s located in Baltimore, MD.
