Modified Ford F-750 makes life on the road luxurious

It is not uncommon for builders to take on projects away from home. Doing so can be very lucrative, but it often means long commutes in the truck or extended stays at a hotel.

But for the right price, a builder could have both a truck and hotel. The truck you see above is the perfect solution for the builder constantly on the road. According to ToolsOfTheTrade.net,

“Peter Dunkel, of Dunkel Bros. Machinery Moving in Los Angeles, modified a Ford F-750 so he could do out-of-town projects in comfort. We’re not talking nicer seats and a cushier ride—though it may have those things. We’re talking living room, kitchen, dining area, bathroom, and space to sleep six. Oh yeah, and there is a dump bed, but you’ll need a ladder to get into it.”

Unfortunately, Dunkel’s truck failed to meet the asking price at auction in August. It was expected to fetch between $450,000-$650,000 from the winning bidder. Hardly pocket change! What does on get for a half-a-million-dollar truck? Check out the list of highlights

- Truck was widened by 22 inches to accommodate a vehicle in the back
- Less than half the weight of a conventional motorhome while maintaining all functionality and the ability to tow more
- Floating cab to maximize comfort and make for a smooth ride
- Cabin attached to a different chassis linked to an air bag system that is then mounted to the frame
