WHAT THE TRUCK Man spends $26,000 transforming pick-up truck into dream motorhome complete with lounge room, kitchen and even a porch

A THRILL-SEEKER has spent $26,000 converting an old pickup truck into his dream motor home.

Tim Johnston, of Alaska, had been using a run-down motor to explore his home country until last year when he upgraded to a 1996 Ford F350.

The 38-year-old spent countless hours transforming the truck into a mobile home, complete with its own lounge room, kitchen and even toilet.

The amazing motor can host up to six people and comes equipped with two couches, oven, fridge, TV and 100-watt solar panel roof.

It even has its own undercover back porch, which is perfect for kicking back and taking in the snowy mountains.

He now uses the vehicle to explore the rugged Alaskan ranges, staying overnight in his favourite places and soaking up the spectacular views all within the comforts of his home.

Tim said: “I sold my Toyota because it was on its last legs and bought a classic Ford truck for just under $13,000 because I wanted to finally create my dream truck house.

“It cost me another $13,000 to build the house on the back so all together the bill has come to around $26,000.

“What is great though is that I sold my old truck and, in the end, didn’t have to spend any much on top to fund my new Ford so in truth it hasn’t really cost me anything.

“The whole process took me about three months to modify, design and finish the home but I’m really pleased with how it turned out.

“My Dad builds custom cabins for a living and was self-taught in all of the trades and that’s who I learned my carpentry and overall DIY skills from.
