The Amazing Transforming Castle Truck


This amazing transforming house truck, created by New Zealanders Justin and Jola, compacts into a street-legal truck (with turrets). Once parked, the house truck completely folds out, expands immensely, and transforms into a fantasy castle.

A very well-done video feature on the Castle Truck and its owners

It opens into an amazingly expansive and well-detailed living space, with solar heating, pull-down food dehydrator, yin/yang composting toilet, and rooftop bath.

    Ingenuity like this is why I follow the tiny house movement even though I will probably never have one of my own. Just brilliant!

    Pretty Cool, being someone that has built a few house trucks I bet they spent years building it. There would be lots of air leaks, so unless you are near the wood stove it must be cold inside in the winter
