Would you stay in this Hotel On Wheels?

Daniela Carneiro and Eduardo Ribeiro created the Truck Surf Hotel, a converted Mercedes-Benz truck that transforms into rooms and serves as a hotel on-the-go. The truck hotel travels across Portugal during the summer and Morocco in the winter. The hosts wanted to share their love of the outdoors with people and make traveling convenient, accessible, and comfortable.
