'The Big Maroon' by John Driscoll

Chances are you’ve heard the phrase “Built Not Bought,” and the alliterated cliché usually comes with arguments on criteria. Here is a build that cannot be contested. This beautiful gypsy caravan motor home is the real deal. Meet The Big Maroon by John Driscoll.

Gypsy John’s Big Maroon vintage house truck in Portland, OR is a gypsy caravan motor home built on a 1959 Federal truck that was originally a flatbed farm truck that John purchased for $125 with a bad engine in 1971 when he was only 21. It’s been a nonstop labor of love since.
