Retired Police Command Vehicle Turned Tiny Home


Welcome to a unique journey inside “Commando 61,” a 2004 Freightliner transformed into a home on wheels by Jay, an enthusiast of van life and DIY conversions. This former command center, acquired at a police auction, has been lovingly converted into a fully functional living space, complete with all the amenities of a modern home.

Join us as we explore every nook and cranny of Jay’s impressive build. This Freightliner, a Tsunami by Forest River, has traveled over 23,000 miles and witnessed numerous transformations, turning it into the ultimate home on wheels.

Once a bustling command center with desks and tech equipment, the living space now features a comfortable couch, TV, and a cleverly designed Murphy bed. Discover how Jay repurposed the original structure to fit his living needs while maintaining the vehicle’s unique character. Cooking and eating are at the heart of Jay’s van life. The kitchen boasts a heavy-duty sink, a custom-made pecan Live Edge countertop, and a space-efficient preparation table.


Jay’s commitment to functionality without sacrificing style is evident in every detail, including a Speak Easy Appliance cabinet that doubles as potential liquor storage. Equipped with a 100-gallon freshwater tank, a robust solar system, and powerful diesel generators, Commando 61 is built for long off-grid adventures. Jay highlights the vehicle’s impressive power capabilities, including a unique camera system that extends up to 30 feet for extra security.
