About the Author
Roger Beck built his first housecar in 1969 and left Los Angeles, California heading north. In the next 7 1/2 years he traveled the Pacific Northwest doing art fairs and building three more housetrucks, each one getting larger. He also met many other housetruck people along the way, and took lots of photos of their "mobile: homes. Most of the photos in this book are from the collection he compiled during his travels during the 1970s.
