Newest house truck by Michael Ostaski in New Mexico

Post by Michaelostaski »

I would love to share my newest creation with all you gypsys and wonderful nomadic folks out there! I have owned and lived in my first. Rolling home for 18 years, and then settled down only to long for the life once again so I started a really sweet home on wheels! It's on a Cummins 6 ton rig, love to post some pics? Help if you can, maybe mr. Sharkey can do that? Or friend Michael Ostaski and let me know who you are and enjoy the ride!!

Wow indeed! Please show us more of your build and let us know how long it took to build, what the inside is like, how much it weighs, how you plan to use it and a hundred other questions. Thanks, Jack

While we are waiting for progress on this one, lets take a look at some of Michael's previous work. This should build expectations nicely. :D

Nice looking rig.

My concern is how much the conversion weighs.

While that chassis is a lot heavier duty than any E-350/450, G3500/4500, or Sprinter chassis, that isn't a class 8 truck with a 14,000 lb front axle and 30,000 lb rear axle.

Lovely work, Michael. You MUST give us some more info on the build along with lots of photos. With that said, I confess that I've not updated my build thread in too long. I'll correct that soon. Why don't you do the same.
