Share Pictures and Info About Your Toy Hauler

I thought it would be nice for those looking to get and/or build a toy hauler to be able see, in one thread, what others are using to help give them ideas.

Here is my new Toy Hauler. I still have to install a truck bed, hitches and a sleeper box on the back of it.

It is a 2001 Chevy G3500 Cutaway with 19,000 miles!! It has a 6.5L Turbo Diesel with an Automatic Transmission.

For those doubters. Maybe the condition of the interior can convince you that it only has 19,000 miles. I too had my doubts. Grin

Sometimes ambulances don't get much use and are great starting points.

I have a 2500 HD chev and an enclosed car trailer for my hauling duties.

True but a more accurate wear indicator on those engines is hours rather than miles. They often idle for hours each day but don't go anywhere mileage-wise.

If a 2004 up diesel ambulance and has more than 25-30% idle time walk away.

The EGR cooler is likely plugged and a major job (Ford GM Mopar) to replace.

The newer dash read out will give you the idle vs total running hours.

I don't haul my toys, I drive them.

Motorhomes are good candidates for low mileage trucks to start with and you'll have all the camper stuff too.

Mine is a 2001 E-250 camper van. It pulls my car trailer perfectly.

Here's what I used from '94 to '16. The trailer is so advanced as to obsolete all other box trailers.

The trailer is now residing in North Carolina and the Sub is in Spokane, Washington.
