When people talk about ‘life on the road’ it is most often about an adventurous trip or two that took them to a few exotic places before they found their way back home. But when 50 year old Joseph Tayyar tells you about the same, he literally means every single word. This resourceful and creative animator by profession has turned a truck into a mobile house that is as stylish and convenient as any modern home.” – decoist.com

The Half Shell is a new non-cabover design for Casual Turtle Campers. Meant to be even lower profile and lighter weight than the original CTC design, this model can be outfitted any way you like – from a simple shell to fit the smallest pickups to full-size, fully-furnished campers with finished interiors. Its signature domed roof gives headroom where needed and creates a comfortable space, especially for its size. The Half Shell design is full of potential for simple, lightweight truck campers intended for those not interested in what is available at the RV dealer.” – Peter Paviowich

It’s always nice to have a blast from the past for gaining perspective. A reader of Tiny House Blog passed this onto Kent the other day reminding us that tiny houses are not really a new idea at all. Well I guess reading Walden again will tell you that too… in any event these house trucks are really great to see and read about.
