ONE man has out-smarted the system by turning his transit van into his home while he works on the road so he can save on rent and make money at the same time.
The cargo driver from the US gave viewers a tour of his van/home on social media.
"This is a quick tour of the van I work and live in. I haul time-sensitive freight in a Ford Transit van, also known as expediting," he captioned the clip.
He elevated the bed using wooden slates so that he had room underneath to carry cargo while he travelled across the states.
Besides the 'bunk,' the cargo driver had an AC unit and heater as well as a power unit to keep his electrical items charged.
On top of the power unit, he also had a small storage container made from wood to keep his essentials such as tinned food.

In one clip, he revealed he made over £900 in just 24 hours thanks to driving cargo from one state to another.
He explained he was paid roughly 95p per mile he drove.
