It's been turning heads in Colorado, now a campervan made from a huge fibreglass cow is looking for a new owner.

The giant cow, which is around four metres high, was previously used at an old steak restaurant at Grand Valley. 

It was bought at an auction by local artist Lyle Nichols 15 years ago, reported The Daily Sentinel.

Nichols spent around three months converting it into a motorhome, complete with two couches and a bed in the belly of the cow.

He told The Daily Sentinel his favourite part of owning the unique truck was seeing the reaction of other drivers as the cow peeked its head over the hill on a two-lane road.

"The best part was the surprise," he said.

However while he has decided to sell the cow motorhome, he hopes it won't go far.

"It's an icon to the Grand Valley. A lot of people don't want to see it leave. I don't either. I think it would be great for a business or political campaign."
