That one says it costs about $35,000 (not hundreds of thousands), but I am not sure how much it weighs (I doubt it is solid oak though).

Steven, you seem like a reasonable guy, but come on man, making the crapper your one incentive for wanting to be an owner operator isn't very practical.

Well, the expression of being "up **** creek without a paddle" came to mind for some reason.

Owner Operator:

An owner-operator is a driver who either owns or leases the truck they are driving. A self-employed driver.

Do a search on YouTube for "super condo truck" and you will see many videos there. That pic you posted of that small truck has had all that stuff put in a very small space that was never meant for it. The most stuff you squeeze into a small place means more weight per square inch and that is where the problem lays.

The term bed bugger means a truck driver who hauls peoples house hold goods from point a to point b...and usually helps load, and unload..I'd rather pick sh***t with the chickens that do that.

I completely agree

I think it would make a good passenger seat anyway. What could be a better use of that space if you are driving solo? You can even open a window.

Where you going to empty the "black water tank" at? Can't use the RV dump sites cause your to big. Driving with an open window to relieve the smell in the truck will be tough to do when its raining or in -30 degree weather.

Truck stops are listed as dump stations too. I'd rather brave the weather in the truck, more often than not. As long as it would be legal.

The dump stations at truck stops are on the 4 wheeler side. A place where no trucks are allowed. You will look awful funny emptying the black water tank a cup at a time and walking to dump it.

Oh okay, maybe I could transfer it to a portable unit and wheel it over.
