Is it still a tree house if it’s not technically in a tree? I think I’ll allow it.

What the hell? Who thought this was a good idea?!
September 22nd, 2009
What is the name of your club and how do I join?
At what point do I learn the secret knock?
Is this club pedifile free?
If not, are there any required sleep overs?
How often do we take this sweet ride out to pick up on ladies at Walmart?
I am very interested in joining, but I am also talking to the other guys with the log cabin/van on the other side of the parking lot. Let me know what you have to offer that they don’t. Hope to hear back from you soon.
So, what is the yellow rope at the end for? Does he rescue people from floodwaters with this thing? Did he include a coffee maker?
In Georgia some people call that a house.
Ruffin went and got a new motorhome.
Why would someone do this?
vh1′s where are they now….tom sawyer
Holy shit! So thats where Matt Foleys been hiding!
It takes some skill to build a log cabin, let alone build one on top of a van. Props to you, however misquided this is…..
Reminds me of Noah’s Ark. Prolly out to save all the animals in Walmart
Its obviously not road worthy, the front corner marker light is out….
Spanky: Let’s start a club right now. The He-man Woman-haters. I’ll be president.
Alfalfa: And I’ll be second president, and you can be third president.
Spanky: Alright, get up and do exactly what I do. Put your hand on your heart, and raise your other hand. We, the He-man Woman-haters club…
Alfalfa and Buckwheat: We, the he-man woman-haters club…
Spanky: …promise not to fall for this Valentine’s business…
Alfalfa and Buckwheat : …promise not to fall for this Valentine’s business…
Spanky: …because girls are the bunk.
Alfalfa and Buckwheat : …because girls are the bunk.
Uuummm . . . looks like there’s already a bunk on this van / club-house!
Nah, this isn’t a new idea….now let me tell you a story about a man named Jed, poor mountaineer who bareley kept his feamily fed…you get the gist.
Watch out for live-ins. You’re gonna get some live-ins.
Many Wal-Mart locations allow the homeless to park indefinitely. They generally stay out of the way of other customers, and spend money at the store. Considering that this thing looks barely operable, I’d say that that’s probably what’s going on here.
Someone told this person about how much fun they had ‘roughing it’ out in the woods…and they just HAD TO JOIN IN with their version!!
seriously, how can you make fun of thist? this van is awesome!
I think the part on the front is an old hot tub. Very nice
country bears road house???
Wonder if they live in the trailer park that’s full of rednecks, but bans illegals?
Details of that one at http://www.RumorRat.com
Stained glass windows in the penthouse? Nice padlock on the driver side door too.
Attention Walmart shoppers:
OK I know we said you can park your RVs over night, but………………
Myrtle Beach Storage
Once again I WANT THAT VAN!
Could this possibly a reject exodus vehicle from the colony??
I wanna play… PLEASE!!!!!! can I play in your tree house on wheeels!!!!!!!!??????
God ! I just love this place… so many ideas for me to try in real life.. just knowing it gets up the noses of all you better than thou straights. Personally I think this is pretty ingenius. IF he is homeless, at least he has a home to call his own and doesnt have to fight for a bed a shelter or worse a box to cover with under a bridge.
Is this even legal? I get pulled over for not having a front license plate in California; how many tickets does this guy (girl? family? Clampett Clan?) have for this monstrosity? Or are Georgia’s vehicle laws a little more lax?
hahah that shit also looks like it can fly lol
Hey I saw this guy giving out free candy down my block the other day in front of an elementary. What a coincidence!
Yes Thad, it’s going to be featured in Transformer’s-III.
It’s called Maximus Shitboxatron.
I’m just wondering if the upper cabin there connects to the inside of the van so you don’t have to get outside the van to get inside the upper cabin. I don’t think I could sleep in that thing if someone could just break in and drive off with it while you’re still INSIDE it (then again who would steal this thing besides me)
the tittle says “no girls allowed” REALLY??? the dude drivin that probably gets more ass than a toilet seat…….
Deliverance on wheels!
I’m amazed and want one! It’s like something the A-Team would have built in the pioneer days.
If the van’s a rockin’, don’t come a knockin’!
Maybe this is the “rescue System” for people who are traveling with the car – owner. Just sit in the house. If you get into a car-accident then the “rescue-house” will fly to the next car.
Well its obviously not road legal, the front corner marker light is out…..
The only beaver this guy has ever seen is still gnawing on bumper.
The treehouse top looks like it is about to slide forward and fall off. This also looks like something the people on the BBC show Top Gear would make.
Bet the chicks are just lining up to get in the shaggin van! LOL
I like the deck off the back!!
“So wonderful to have you visit my home. Watch your step, that PBR beeramid took me two whole hours to build. If you will excuse me now, I am going to retire to the loft to relax and enjoy the view. You know, from the custom window you can almost make out the entire lawn and garden section of the Walmart..”
Who in the world thought that this was a good idea? This guy probably wanted to live in his car for easier access to Walmart! lol
Are you gonna make it all 220?
Yeah. 220… 221, whatever it takes.
The wheels on my treehouse go round and round….
Somebody call Red Green.
Did you see THAT?
Motherfucker drove right THROUGH the Unabomber’s shack without even slowing down!
I’ve seen this one before! I have toooons of pictures of it XD
No girls allowed… of their own free will ayway. Do you still have to introduce yourself to the neighbors as a registered sex offender if you live in a van… down by the wal-mart?
Big Ern McCracken
Ultimate urban assault vehicle, probably has a machine gun nest up there.

Robert The Bruce
Ok I have two for this one:
“Yes sir, this is the only vehicle in the world with a five star energy rating.”
This is a promo vehicle for a new NBC series that crosses “The A-Team” with “Swiss Family Robinson”.
Somebody call Chris Hansen quick, this sick bastard is in Walmart buying candy!!
Is it a transformer?
OMG. That might be the home of a predator. Carefull!
If the van is a rocking, don’t come a knocking!
Mail Order Fart Company
The corregated steel is bent for more aerodynamic effect.
No one has mentioned that the van also has a pickup bed welded to the back of it…
Redneck Monster Garage
Hi, I’m Bob Vila, this time on This Old House we show you how to turn a 1980 Chevy van into your very own penthouse!
I see this all over Atlanta!
excuse me…there seems to be some abnormal growth on this van….
i don’t know why everybody’s hatin. this is the rescue mobile that fema sent to atlanta
I didn’t know the swiss family robinson owned a mobile home. Beware of the tiger pit in housewares.
This is obviously the S10/Vette tow vehicle……
A modern day Grapes of Wrath mobile….sure this wasn;t taken in OK?
This is a lot nicer and way more fancy than the camper shell made of PLYWOOD I saw last week. Bonus points for rockin then Lincoln Logs look.
if your van has a log cabin on top ……………….you might be a redneck
Ted Kazynski called, and he would like his house back please.
makefunofmyfriends.com CHECK US OUT!
When the van is a rockin’, don’t come a knockin’
This looks like something Red Green would build.
If this tree house is a-rockin, he’s probably molesting stray dogs
This thing is the back end of a pickup grafted onto the front of a van. it almost looks like it was photo shopped. That right there deserves applause. Building a log cabin on top is going that extra mile. There is a lot of engineering going on here. I want to know what the Department of Motor vehicles calls this. Make? Probably Cheverolet. Model? Frankenvehicle.
I’ve actually passed this car on the highway before! hahaha
Don’t laugh. Might be a FEMA prototype under evaluation.
Real Estate Ad: Highbrow digs with stained glass penthouse suite, open-airy back deck, bonus loft with swing locking gate that protects a beautiful exposed staircase, plus a gorgeous metal “lifetime warrantied” roof. Call to set a viewing appt. today, this one will go fast!
My dream machine!
It’s a home, vehicle and – if you look inside the window – on office!
I will vouch that this was in a Walmart parking lot in GA! I tried to take a picture of it at the Tucker location one day, but the owner was sitting in the…vehicle and he didn’t look like someone I wanted to mess with. (Who knows, he might’ve been flattered!) So I ended up with bad iPhone pics. Glad to see this one : )
It’s a mobilehunting blind!!! Can also be used for a turkey shoot!
That truck doesn’t have a cab, it has a cabin.
Lamont, you big dummy, what you buildin now???
Wal-mart lets you park your RV in their parking lot if you’re rollin.
Must be a homemade
There is no vehicle inspection in Georgia, I am afraid. This is not the most extremely bizarre thing you’ll find if you scope out enough Wal Marts.
Though I like the stained glass windows up high….
It’s as though it is a shrine to…. something…..

Does this qualify under the Cash for Clunkers deal?
Would this officially be a log cabover?
Does this qualify under the Cash for Clunkers program?
I think i saw that van ….. DOWN BY THE RIVER!!
I always wondered what The Clampett’s car from The Beverly Hillbillies would’ve look like if they’d done an updated version of the TV show. Now I know. Now I know.
No deer is safe with the new moble hunting blind.
LOL i love the little gate at the bottom of the ladder. Useless!
Calvins gal Susie
So Calvin’s all grown up, huh, wonder if Hobbes is ridin’ shotgun…
What would make this even better is if the back was a pool!! )
Nice Digs dude!
Hah! i took pics of this van awhile back and totally forgot about them. This post reminded me so I posted all the pics on my website.
I think I saw this van on Modern Marvels.
they sell those down at the local chevy dealership here in ar-kansas.
I LOVE this van!!!! LMAO!!!!
This is 1/4 van 1/4 truck 1/4 Lincoln log cabin and 1/4 of another truck
seriously there are like 3 vehicles welded together does this thing RUN on a wood burning stove?!
I thought the Beverly Hillbillies were off the air?
Say, hypotethically of course, someone was in the market for such a “children friendly” auto, what search criteria on Auto Trader would be required. Do I, or I mean, someone else just check the box for “van” and the box for “sweet-ass treehouse with built-in lolipop despenser”?
i move homes every day!
September 25th, 2009
you’d never see this at target
of corse you can cry under water,and i pulled flys wings and still called it a fly
what in the holy fuck is that?! wow…just…WOW.
No girls allowed?
I actually think this is kinda cool.
I saw it in Norcross
I think this is brilliant! I wish I had such a vehicle. Those of you who snub your noses were likely deprived of creativity and whimsy.

I’m going to assume that this “van” is how all the “people of walmart” get to walmart in the first place.
I’ve actually seen this truck thing in front of the Walmart near me in Tucker, GA
the scary thing is this parking lot background looks very different than the lot at the Tucker one.
So he makes the rounds to all the local Walmarts ?
Yeah, I would have gone with “Swiss Family Serial Killer” as the title.
Looks like something from the movie “The Jerk”.
The best part is you don’t even have to leave the driver’s seat to use the toilet.
I’ve seen much stranger things… and strangely roadworthy. When I see a hillbilly shack on wheels, I’m often inclined to envy the people for their genuine freedom, and not to make fun of it. Here I sit stuck in a house, very rarely getting to do what I really want (go to the woods in the mountains) because I have to go back to my stupid job.
I’m not saying the owner of this truckshack is not a complete whackjob, and I’m sure as hell not saying I want to move in with them, but, there is a continuum and I’ve seen some quite nice hippie buses in my time, many of them more livable than my brick house.

This was actually one of the factory options on this van back in 1978. But not many picked the “granola package”.
Such an enjoyable read, and fantastic comments
How much money will I get back for selling a ps3 to gamestop?
Holy shit I seen this guy before!
hmmm…not sure how well this would pass inspection. nonetheless, AWESOME!
How does the Fed increase the money supply?
great you don’t have to pay rent or house tax looks great…….
You know, my inner twelve-year-old actually thinks this is kind of awesome. The rest of me is wondering how the hell this thing is street-legal.
I am loving the door that you can close to make the bottom of the stairs inaccessible. Darn it, that was a big word AND it was on the weekend, I hope they don’t find out and take away my membership. There are rules people, RULES!!!
If my dad had the time.
Imagine being dropped off and picked up from school everyday in this.
September 28th, 2009
I'VE SEEN IT
OMG! I have seen that. And I do not live anywhere near the “bumbles”.
It was at the Mall of GA one day…
ha i’ve seen that at the walmart i go to about 10 times i always wondered why it was up there
My father in law sent me a pic of this same van several months ago from when he was driving through GA on I-85. I nearly shit myself when I saw it on here!

How much money has passed thru your hands in a lifetime?
September 29th, 2009

I think this is sort of awesome. lol
All it needs is a slide and a tire swing.
October 1st, 2009
Is that a Trduckan?
Will money be taken from my taxes because I have a student loan?

October 2nd, 2009
pretty sure this is the sweetest van turned pickup turned clubhouse EVER!
If it was just the van/truck, it would be cooler.
Is anyone feeling left out for now getting a view of the “deck”?
October 3rd, 2009
They live in Northeast Atlanta, it is a father and son who own the truck. I see them all the time and everytime I’m baffled.
UK MILF lady sonia
How much money would an average college philosopher make?

October 4th, 2009
I know this guy, he is homeless but the shop keepers around town let him park in their parking lot and set up camp. he is rough looking!!
October 7th, 2009
while it may or may not be road worthy, it does run. I saw it out on the road today on the way home from work.
October 8th, 2009
Oh…. if only we could harness this guy’s ingenuity and do something…..
useful with it.
October 10th, 2009
Then they loaded up the truck and they moved to Beverly … Hills, that is …
October 11th, 2009

October 13th, 2009

Who dares mock the Road Warrior
October 17th, 2009
HA…looks like my first apartment
October 18th, 2009
I’d love to see what it would look like if this thing got in a car wreck lol!!!!!!!
I do believe that the only thing that would have made this BETTER…..is if they used bright green wood slats for the roof!! Lincoln Logs Unite!!
Oh my gosh I have actually seen this car driving around Atlanta! SO FUNNY!
October 25th, 2009
This is such a sweet ride! love it love it! now they just need to not shop at wal mart and then i’d join the club too!
November 5th, 2009

November 14th, 2009
Does anyone else see that they spliced a van with a truck bed, then added the treehouse? There is just no need for this in any society!
November 29th, 2009
Great use of garden timbers…Looking forward to the garden…NOT
