When you see the inside of this UNICAT, you will order one!

This cozy and sleek looking home isn’t what it appears to be. While the inside seems like any standard albeit small living space with superb storage, the outside is VERY different. Meet the TerraCross home on wheels. This garbage truck looking vehicle is the most intense motor home you’ve ever seen. When stationary, the vehicle is even equipped with a lifting roof that allows for windows and a view of the outside world. We’ve seen epic conversions before, but this thing is built this way from the start. Take a look.
