    Thanks Hammer, bought it used out of Arizona... 1 owner truck. Hauls the Loadstar trailer, two full size quads, camping gear, and about 600 lbs of firewood through the mountains at a good clip!! Better than my old 1/2 ton 2WD chevy did for sure (although that was a good truck and it hauled the quads a good amount of miles all over the east coast!).

    That's cool. I haul mine all over too. But I'm usually only hauling 1 or 2 machines

    Heck yeah!!! As long as it hauls the toys! We towed a 19' Sea Ray with a Mercury Grand Marquis for a few years when we first moved to NC while we searched for a truck LOL.

    I plan on doing a redneck toy hauler again in the future, did a 6X12 to haul dirt bikes (insulated the walls/roof, found a lady that made custom boat covers to build a "screen door" for the rear ramp door so you could sleep with it open, put a floor in, and wired it for 30/50A service so we could plug it in at rv sites.) Sold it after getting rid of the dirt bikes. Need something a tad larger for two full size quads.

    Yeah brother! That has a lot more amenities than the one dad and I build. We didn't do any plumbing fixtures, just used bath houses where available. We made a "military shower" out of pvc tubing as the frame and wrapped shower curtain around it with rings (I think it was two of them) so folks wouldn't eyeball our junk or the missus, then used an ATV sprayer that we would put in the back of the truck with a small electric pump hooked to a kitchen sink sprayer that you could run off a jump box or battery. It worked in a pinch to get the nasty/gritty off before hitting the hay for the night. had enough room for 1 Rancher and two dirty bikes and three grownups with air mattresses. Gotta get a 14' or longer for the next one for two full size utility quads!
