Tiny homes are all the rage, and the Pick of the Day is both a tiny home and a vintage vehicle. Built into the bed of this 1972 Dodge moving truck is a custom-built tiny home, complete with wood-paneled vaulted ceiling, electricity, insulation and windows.

Offered by a private seller in Santa Ynez, California, the vehicle/home’s advertisement on ClassicCars.com notes that the home was done by an artisan builder who specializes in finding and reusing historical wood for his projects.

“For the sleeper, the walls’ panels are hand-carved and fitted using reclaimed wood taken from the historic, famous Miramar By the Sea hotel in Santa Barbara that was open from 1876 to 2000,” the seller notes.

“The wood beams for the vaulted ceiling were made from a redwood tree that fell in San Luis Obispo County in coastal California.”

The seller says the truck had been kept in good running condition until the last couple of years, when it was parked and used as a home.

Now, the seller suggests, the Dodge needs someone to get it running again. It also needs some TLC in the passenger compartment and some new door locks.

The asking price is $14,000 for this home on wheels.

  1. I had a couple of projects like this years back & think he has a sad day coming on sale day.
    I think if he can find someone with $5K he will be blessed.
