Steampunk Dream Victorian Mansion on Wheels

June 1, 2012 by JJ in Biking, DIY, Motor Mansions, Videos with 0 Comments


If you’ve always dreamed of hitting the road, but couldn’t imagine leaving behind your antique, two story Victorian mansion, well, these guys may have your ticket to ride.

This Steampunk motorhome turns dreams into, well, dreams. Spotlight headlights and a second story balcony, lace curtains and old world details, wagon spoke tires, rusty metal oozing with rivets and a stern fit for a song wielding desert sea captain.

These Steampunk junkies from Obtainium Works and the Academy of Unnatural Sciences in Berkeley, California, rode their sweet creation, “Neverwas” at Burningman 2012. If you missed it, check out the video below for a peek of the shenanigans.
