The Truck-A-Float is a fun way to find solace from the hustle and bustle of city life. Couples who enjoy camping will love the no-frills experience of this floating accommodation, located in Rockaway, Queens.

The Truck-A-Float was designed by Venezuelan architects Carolina Cisneros and Matteo Pinto, who consider it an art installation as well as a lodging. Those who are looking for an intimate, small-scale vacation will love the simplicity and quiet of this inventive hotel.

The hotel is comprised of four pods which connect to a shared platform. Each pod is covered by a truck cap; inside is two-person cot, mosquito netting and fan. A table flips down for some intimate dining between sleeping-mates.
