A road trip adventure seeker from Cavite has modified a jeepney into a camper to explore the Philippines – elevating the status of the most popular means of transportation in the country from a public utility vehicle into a tourist camping van.
The Philippines’ “King of the Road” recently got its makeover, thanks to Francisco Canaveral Amoroso from Dasmarinas, Cavite, who transformed the iconic vehicle into a camper jeepney to fulfill his traveling goals.
The 30-year-old online business owner had a 30-seater jeepney customized into his idea of a “Bahay-Jeepney” – a Pinoy version of the popular camper van home that can serve both as a car and a house for his whole family.
In his Facebook posts, Amoroso showed netizens around his camper-jeepney’s living room, kitchen, bedroom, and bathroom.
So far, Amoroso has traveled with his family and friends in the camper jeepney to the National Capital Region, Naic, Quezon, Camarines Sur, Albay, Sorsogon, and Batangas. They intend to take it on other excursions throughout Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao.
The adventure seeker also offered netizens a chance to join him on his trip and the lucky stranger’s experience on the camper jeepney was documented in his recent video posted just before Christmas.

Amoroso said he always wanted to travel around the Philippines and share the amazing stories of the people he meets.
The modified jeepney camper van has earned a lot of attention on social media for exhibiting Filipino innovativeness and creativity in the iconic house on wheels.
Netizens were impressed with the customized camper jeepney since Amoroso managed to turn it into a Pinoy version of a camper van which costs around PhP500,000 to build.
Amoroso also said the camper jeepney will have more features such as its own solar power system to advocate renewable energy.
The Philippine jeepney was previously turned into a stationary jeepney camper van by a Filipino designer.
Environmentalist Larry Gile also turned a jeepney into an eco-friendly planter jeepney art project.
