A Story of Organization in Pictures

By Eva Wallace

1I received an email with these pictures in it a few days ago and just had to share them with you. This "house" is the epitome of organization and efficiency. Not to mention it's just pretty darn creative! This place is a converted garbage truck, if you can believe that one!23456789

Have you ever seen anything quite like it?

OK, wow.

I like the drawer organization–the cutouts for the glass containers and glassware to keep stuff from banging around.

I guess the 'upstairs' is the bedroom?

I know! I think the drawer organization is the best part! ;)

Don't judge a book by its cover, eh? Amazing.

Wow… what the… how can that even be possible? Absolutely amazing. I can't believe all that fits inside that truck somehow. The truck must be taller than it seems? Or SOMETHING? I just don't get it… I just designed our tiny house, and I do not see how they managed this…

Hi-

Can you provide any more information regarding where this came from? I really want to investigate where they got the various parts for the interior. Would LOVE to get a more in-depth description of the supplies.

Not a garbage truck.

From Eva Wallace, December 28 2009

OOPS! Thanks Kozz - I stand corrected. This is NOT a converted garbage truck, but rather a custom vehicle that is a cross between a motor home and an off-road vehicle. Still cool though… :)

From Mythbuster, December 28 2009

The interior shown in the pictures clearly does not belong to the truck shown in the exterior pictures. The interior pictures clearly show windows that are missing from the exterior view of the truck.

The panels on each side of the truck which are located over the last rear wheel also do not line up and can not possible be the window either. Notice in the exterior picture that the panels are below the top of the side entry door, but in the interior picture, the windows are above the top of the door. This would prove that the panels are not covering up the windows.

From Eva Wallace, December 28 2009

Thanks for pointing that out - I should have included the quote from Snopes. Take a look at this Snopes link, Mythbuster:
http://www.snopes.com/photos/automobiles/garbagecamper.asp
It states that the top of the vehicle raises up to reveal the windows.

From Dave, December 28 2009

The rising roof answers James Clark's concerns about interior height, too.

Quite a vehicle, but 20 tonnes?!?
A steal at 840,00 EUR !

From Eva Wallace, December 28 2009

Ha! Yes - quite a steal! :)

This is a much better rubbish truck. http://www.actionmobil.at/page18/page18.html

Used to cart real rubbish around. I think this was called Pershing.

From myshop2, December 30 2009

And with 1.5 Million Euro a bit more expensive too: http://richtigteuer.de/2007/07/16/das-groste-und-teuerste-wohnmobil-der-welt/
(in german, translates roughly into "the biggest and most expensive camper van")

From John Trosko, January 4 2010

This is a wonderful post, bravo! I want one of these trucks.
