You Can Make Your Own Toy Hauler!
Sometimes you can make what you need from stuff you have laying around. My good friend Bob Smith from New Paris, OH made a toy hauler out of a covered utility trailer. This is Bob and his better half - Wanda. Below is his converted - now a multi-purpose utility trailer/toy hauler.Since Bob installs commercial silos all over the United States he frequently needs a utility trailer to carry his tools to the project and keep them locked up while not in use. Bob got to thinking that he could also make a nice toy hauler out of his utility trailer and so he went to work. He installed an AC unit, roof vents, paneling and insulation, electric, port-holes (he wanted windows but needed to maintain the security of the trailer when he used it for work - so he opted for port-holes which are actually product viewers he uses in his silos), an inflatable bed, refrigerator, carpet and some furniture. Now his utility trailer is truly a multi-use vehicle. It’s an RV when he needs one, a tool crib for on the job and a toy hauler that will easily carry his ATV and motorcycle. Perhaps this utility trailer conversion is just what you need. It doesn’t cost that much to make, especially if you already have the utility trailer. You may also want to consider screening in the openings if you camp in mosquito land.My wife Marilyn and I are out here on the RV road having a lot of fun bringing you new and fresh ideas and meeting many wonderful people on the journey. I thank all of you for your continued readership. Perhaps we will meet up at a campground along the way. I certainly enjoy meeting you! Jim
