    HILDAGO COUNTY, TX (CNN) -- A family of 12 is living in the back of a tractor trailer in Texas.

    The video shows a tour of their temporary home. It has what you would expect in a house such as beds, a TV and even a Christmas tree.

    There is a storage area behind a blue tarp and a small heater to keep the family warm. But one very important thing is missing. Mother Belia Moya said, "We have a self made shower back there where they heat up the water to take a shower or if not, I take them to their grandfather's house to take a shower there and bring them back home. There is no bathroom right now."

    Seven children live in the tractor trailer ranging in age from 1 to 14-years-old.

    Moya claims constant fighting with a neighbor over her kids and animals drove her to uproot the family about a month ago and move them into a friend's tractor-trailer. The community is raising money to help the family.

    Their first priority is building a bathroom.
