Home Haulin’–a trucker’s dream motorhome


Marv Mountstephen of Outlaw Welding and Mechanical in Taber, Alberta, Canada, always dreamed of building a motorhome on the back of a Class 8 truck, according to an item posted on Today’s Trucking.com

“The nice thing about building it on a truck is you don’t have to worry about weight,” explains Mountstephen. “It’s built like a tank and if it doesn’t last for 40 years I’d be surprised.”

Since the big rig had the ability to carry more weight than a typical motorhome, the sinks, shower, and washer and dryer installed were residential quality, instead of lightweight RV models.

Including the truck — which was also fully loaded — Mountstephan estimates the whole get-up cost about $400,000.
