OH, HELL YEAH!!! Ain’t nuttin’ quite like bein’ out in the middle of effin’ nowhere without anyone around. I’m in a similar location tonight but didn’t get any pics before it got dark.
Tried to get one of the Amazon Basics covers that someone earlier had suggested but they were out of stock when I went to order. Based on the fact ALL the covers look pretty much the same, I eventually went with this one. I like it - one of the main issues I see reported over and over with RV covers is they rip easy but I've also seen a ton of pictures where the cover was way too big for the RV and so, they must flap like crazy in the wind. Based on this, I bought one for trailers 20-22 feet (mine's 22 feet) and I'm very happy with fit - big enough but snug enough that there's very little loose material flapping around. I also liked the fact it came with a couple straps that go vertically over/under the trailer to cinch the cover down even more. Cover also has loops on both sides so I bought some more straps/buckles and so I have a strap that goes horizontally around the trailer.
So far so good - time will tell...
My Class C cover has at least 4 straps that run underneath and a front and rear strap running across horizontally that cinches it down from both ends. When I need access and have to unstrap, even a slight breeze will blow the thing up like a balloon.
Here's a neat toy hauler over on the expedition portal. Guy did some nice suspension mods plus others and a huge 12v upgrade.
Nice. Most of the smaller ones I see have to be unloaded to sleep in the bed.
It's one of the things that have kept me away from them.
They must eat standing or only camp where there's picnic tables and/or restaurants. I can appreciate wanting more storage, but getting rid of the dinettes to add cabinets wouldn't work for us.
Yep, very cool trailer but seating is KEY! and this has none....
Fold up seating is easy to come by, a real bed in a reasonable sized toy hauler isnt.
It's not the bed in question, he removed the seating to add cabinets. That's fine if you never camp in the rain or snow or mosquito fields that make indoor dining desirable or sit around playing board games until the storm passes. His cabinets not only did away with the seating, but it made the floor space considerably smaller so even folding chairs and a folding table will now be VERY tight to use.
I like a lot of what he did to it, just saying it wouldn't come close to working for my family, even if we had a couple less kids.
Our of curiosity I browsed a few manufacturers and I don't see it as being rare to have a bed with a compact toy hauler. Forest River alone has a half dozen 18 & 19 series units with front bed and even one 17ft with a full bed and almost identical layout to the one in the video.
I guess I must be missing something or misunderstanding, but it doesn't seem like an issue at all to find a sub-20ft class with a full size bed that is accessible at all times.
Nice rig. I'm fine with that desk instead. He sure put a lot of money and effort into it.
20-25k to run an AC for 6 hours $$$
That’s cool shit but damn.
I never really use my couch and dinette.
Thought about taking my stove top and sink out and putting in a lazy boy recliner.
Most of the small toyhaulers I've looked at have the bed in the back. Where the bikes ride.
I'm sure the cabinets he built in work for him, but it looks like it's now too narrow to get two bikes in there side by side.
Not much point in having a toyhauler with no toy room.
Are minibikes not toys?
All that work and they've only owned it for a 8 months and it's for sale?
Making payments be hard.
Maybe the Patreon thing ain't working out.
