Found it It's a converted crashtruck into a RV. Looks like it was just sold at Barret Jackson for 45,000. I find it wierd that it showed up at this auction house.

I saw that on TV as well along with a bunch of other weird vehicles and I think they we're living in it as their house and traveling because the wife was sick.
