"Damn the Blinkies, full steam ahead!" -- Major Catastrophe
Neverwas Haul, a self-propelled 3-story Victorian House, made from 75% recycled equipment and materials, returns with new interiors, engine, and collections from its travels around the world (i.e., oddities of the Jules Verne era including a Camera Obscura, described below). The Haul measures 24 feet long by 24 feet high and 12 feet wide and is built on the base of a 5th wheel travel trailer.
We designed and built the Neverwas Haul as a vehicle to explore the Black Rock Desert for the Burning Man Festivals in 2006, 2007, 2009, 2010, 2012, 2013, and 2015. We have also been featured at Maker’s Faire, Carson City Admissions Day Parade, and the Handcar Regatta. We welcome all like-minded individuals who wish to participate with us in this on-going endeavor.
