House Trucks For Sale Nz – Golden Bay artist Jay Horton is selling his 1978 J5 Bedford “home truck” on Facebook for $45,000. He describes it as a work of art that turns heads.
“It’s unique, it’s colorful, and it has a whole vibe to it — kind of a counterculture feel,” he said.

Horton has mostly parked it in one or two places – including near the scenic Abel Tasman National Park – in the three years he’s owned it, but says the truck is going on a “big gypsy mission”.

That means the 9-tonne truck will “fill” the “car-killing” Mount Takaka between Nelson and Golden Bay, Horton said.
“You really deserve someone who is really good but wants to go big,” he said.

“It’s one of the most beautiful homes on wheels I’ve ever seen and one of the best built I’ve ever seen … or heard of,” he said.
It includes a lounge area that can be expanded when the truck is parked, a fully functional kitchen with plenty of tables, a wood-burning stove, and a loft above the truck cab that fits a king-size bed and is big enough to stand up.

“Although it has a very nice little fireplace, I actually don’t use the fireplace very often.”

They were all crammed into an old Austin truck from the 1930s that wasn’t running but “just slowly composting.”
And while his own children have enjoyed his newest truck, it’s time to sell it, he said.

Horton suspended the truck’s registration and the new owner must also have a commercial truck driver’s license for the truck over 9 tons.
Horton thought the truck should pass the certificate of fitness easily as nothing has changed since it was last on the road in 2016. I’m a fan of trucks and after a night at Wacky Stays in Kaikoura I came home and googled truck stays. on the North Island and found Waitomo Farmstay and Gardens. At the end of March we booked a night in their large caravan with a rusty Thames Trader cabin and higgeldy-piggeldy designed living space behind.

Wacky is the right word to describe the collection of wacky accommodations and farm parks that make up Wacky Stays in Kaikoura. We spent the night in the Bedford motorhome from 1951, which also has a yurt, a colonial car, a tipi and a farmhouse.
