According to reporting by the Vancouver Sun, the developer first made use of the truck in 2019 for an eastern Vancouver project. The truck has since travelled throughout the Vancouver region to visit real estate brokers, its open sides and ease of ventilation making it easier to social distance compared to a standard building.

The truck is kitted out with the usual fittings of a sales centre, with floorplans, interior samples and a 360-degree virtual tour of the project.
