This guy converted a garbage truck into a mobile home. I love the storage drawers, which have cut-outs in them for all of the kitchen tools and dinnerware so that it doesn’t knock about when the house is in motion. [via Steven Robert’s Facebook page]

Update: As several people have pointed out in comments, this is NOT a converted garbage truck, but an actual camper/mobile home called the TerraCross. Snopes even has a page on it. Regardless of what it’s called, or how it was made, I still think the cut-out drawers, the original inspiration for posting it, are cool. But otherwise, sorry for the hoodwink.
