I am building and renovating a housetruck, which is built on the back of a Toyota Hilux, in New Zealand. This video portrays the beginning of my build.
I have been searching for a van to convert into my home for the next year, while I roadtrip around New Zealand making weekly videos and a documentary. Instead I find a small housetruck that is already partly built.
In this video you get some tips on finding a vehicle in New Zealand.
On my next video you will see more of the truck I have just bought, so stay tuned
My departure date is approaching extremely fast and before leaving I have made a Kickstarter/Crowdfunding profile. Here you are able to help me complete this dream by donating a sum of money. Your money will only be reduced from your account if the goal is reached, so help make this come true.
Thank you in advance
Because of the connotations attached to the word houstruck it is often easily understood, however there are not many that understand exactly what it is.
In The Gypsy Fairs there are two types of houses on wheels; houstruck and housebus. The main difference between a housetruck and a housebus is that a housetruck is a house which is separate from the cab where one drives, the house is simply built on top of a chassis. this is an internal framework that supports a man made object in its construction and use. Quite often there will also be a loft over the cabin of the truck.
A housebus though, is when the driver is literary driving inside of the house.
