Amazing Truck Can Transform Into a Full-Size House

This is an incredible video of a truck that can transform into a full-size house or building structure. The video was created by Dahir Insaat, and is unfortunately only a concept.

While this particular demonstration seems a bit far-fetched considering the house would have to be completely devoid of furnishings to fold correctly, the idea itself is very interesting. There are increasing amounts of people who want to own a home without the burden of possessing a large house on permanent real estate. This has led to the explosive tiny house movement where people not only seek to reside in smaller homes, but many also choose for their homes to be mobile.

The above video isn’t completely unreasonable. In fact, the idea of a truck that transforms into a larger space for living quarters already exists. Most have seen the RVs that come equipped with a motorized expanding section:

If you have $3,000,000 laying around you can splurge for something as ridiculously luxurious as this camper:

Though it doesn’t expand into a full house like the concept video above, it does include two full stories with the use of a retractable second floor. The luxury trailer has a total of 1,100 square feet, and is essentially a duplex on wheels.

It isn’t too hard to believe that somebody will pull off the transforming truck-to-full-house in the near future. Hopefully it won’t be $3,000,000 when they do.
