For its deluxe appearance and compact style, a lot of car collectors are reportedly making bids for such customized home on wheels.

The interior of the motor home serves as a room.

It was sold for 20,000 yuan (around $2,900), local reports confirm.

The strictly-for-two homemade vehicle measures 2.4 meters in length and 1.7 meters in width. It weighs less than half a ton.
