  1. Hi Tony,
    I have a 1956 Austin house truck that will be for sale in a couple of weeks. It is run on gas and solar power, has 2 double beds, toilet, shower, and kitchen with stove, oven, 2 way fridge.
    If you or anyone else is interested contact me on 027 646 7272 not by e-mail
    I'm located in the Coromandel but she drives beautifuly, and has a current COF and rego,so can be driven anywhere!

  2. Hi! I'm interested in your bus. Is it still for sale? If so would you take 12,000? Also could you post some pictures of the inside? Thanks.

  3. There is a lot of interest and people coming to view the 1956 Austin House Truck but as of today Roma Stone is still for sale. I have tried to post photos but am unable to for some unknown reason. I will send them to Lloyd and see if he can post them for me. If you are interested please ring or text me on 027 646 7272. Thanks ~JK

  4. This is my old housetruck!!!!!!!! Wow, I've often wondered what became of she still up and running? Any idea of where she is located now? Cheers, Teiny Winehausen.
