Custom Road Trip Truck


After graduating high school, three Japanese buddies decided to follow their dream of a year-long cross-country road trip, from the northeastern island of Hokkaido to the southwestern one of Yakushima. But before they set out, the trio built one of the coolest road trip cars ever conceived, from a decrepit mid-80s Toyota Toyoace.

The men are neither carpenters nor engineers, so the project took two years. The truck has two stories: the upper deck is a sleeping area, and the bottom has a fully-functional kitchen and bath. It even has a full-size bathtub! Link -via the Presurfer

To VonSkippy: That's what I thought at first too, but it looks like they did a complete loop and a lot of crisscrossing. They say they put around 25,000 km on it, or about 15,500 miles. That's still drivable in a couple of weeks, but I think they took their time about it. ;)

Wow, I actually want to do the same thing, but a road trip in Canada. Maybe go over into the U.S. as well. I don't understand how the bath works though, pours out as they drive?
