You’ve heard of people turning buses into tiny houses, but what about anyone turning a helicopter into something else?

Blake Morris and Maggie Morton are both U.S. Coast Guard helicopter pilots from Mobile, Alabama, and saw the main body of a helicopter for sale on Facebook Marketplace. So they decided to buy it and converted it into a camper.

They say the aircraft had formerly been used by German military police and the U.S. military. They even started an Instagram account– @helicamper_rv – to document their progress in the conversion.

It currently features numerous amenities, including outdoor speakers, an outdoor TV hookup, etc. The couple says they get a lot of honks when they take it out on the road.
