RVs are built for a variety of primary purposes, and this craigslist find is a utilitarian workhouse. Half semi-truck, half travel trailer, the Freightliner Toter Home is what you’re looking for if you need to haul something heavy and would like a place to sleep when you get there. The cab is all truck, while the rear features an 18’ box-shaped living quarters. Out back there’s a trailer hauling mount for a fifth wheel or gooseneck hitch.
The Freightliner FL60 Toter Home is a hybrid heavy truck and RV with enormous towing capacity.
The truck is a 2000 model year, with only 114,000 miles on the drive train and a 5 speed manual for the 5.9L Cummins diesel. It’s been well maintained and is titled as an RV, eliminating many of the headaches associated with commercial rigs, including licensure and insurance. The cab looks well appointed and built for long trips. You’d be able to tow a toy hauler, horse trailer, or a travel trailer for extra space.
Big Cummins diesel engine and a 4 kW generator ensure heavy duty performance.
The living quarters are somewhat spartan and a little cramped, but have all the features needed to travel in comfort. The sleeping quarters feature two twin bunks, one upper berth that extends out over the cab of the truck, and a lower berth that converts to a sofa. A nice sized dinette booth and computer desk round out the living area.
The upper berth extends over the cab while the lower bunk is also a sofa.
The kitchen at the rear of the truck features a double sink, built in microwave, and a three burner propane stove. In addition, the fridge/freezer is brand new, as are the water heater and stove. The space is tight, but with upper and lower cabinets there is plenty of storage and enough counter space to prep even a large meal.

The flooring is all new laminate and the interior cabinetry is custom built oak. The bathroom is tight but highly serviceable with a full sized shower, full vanity with storage underneath and an RV toilet. There’s plenty of room to comfortably shower and dress as well as lots of storage for towels and other items.

On the outside, the truck is fully featured with a rugged lock box for personal items you need to keep safe. The 4,000 watt gasoline engine generator stands capable of supplying all of your power for more than a day with the extra-large, 18 gallon tank. This allows for boon docking when you need to. It also has complete electric and water hookups for parking in RV parks, whichever you choose.
This view is from the bunk area, facing back, notice the entry door on the left.
A Freightliner Toter Home isn’t for everybody, but the wear and tear on even a heavy duty pickup can be too much, while this over the road machine would easily travel a half million miles and still be road worthy. What it lacks in comfort and living space, it makes up for in sheer power and durability.
