I had a Featherlite gooseneck TH with an enclosed garage area and fumes were not a problem. BTW, the quality of this unit was equal to an Airstream and priced accordingly!

I saw a vintage AS that was modified to haul hot rods by designing a hydraulic system that lifted about 4' of the rear section with pull out ramps.

Hey Axel,

I work on a lot of those type MoHo's. They are usually populated by a retired couple and they don't do sleep-overs any more . It's like living in a house (and an expensive one at that) on wheels. It is hardly 'camping'!!!

Glen Coombe has the funeral coach motorhome, which could be a great toy hauler ( he uses it for golf gear showroom). It has the ramp in the back andoors on both rear sides. Who says you can't take 'em with you when you go? At least with his rig you could try

So the Toy Haulers are out in California? I wondered who bought them and where they go since those were the parks I wanted to avoid. Nothing could be worse than to leave the city and then have to camp next to a 4-wheeler or dirt bike revving the engines.
Attached is our toy hauler. It will carry two bikes; a load of firewood; tables and chairs; and makes no noise.

CANNOT understand the thinking that goes into a 25K purchase when that seems "as obvious as the wart on my nose" (kidding there!), but seriously!?!

Seems that the MH with trailer is a MUCH better choice for that sort of transport....IMO!

BTW - At the same 'dealership' I saw a '48 MH that had EXACTLY room for 2 to sleep. This was a quad slide and there was room for 2! Heard talk here about CCD's being window dressing and princess palaces, all show and no go - 48 feet of MH and room for 2!?!?!?!?!!

The prices are out of this world and the utility is nearly zip!?!

Anyway, keep AirStreamin!

Axel,

You know the saying about high end motorhomes - "cocktails for six, dinner for four, sleeps two"

I know some of the horse crowd have complained that their horse trailers with living quarters are not welcome at some campgrounds. Some are really nice too.
There was an article in Trailer Life about the new "Super Class B" motorhomes not being allowed in "Class A only" type campgrounds. Some of these are just as nice, if not nicer than some class A's. I guess the truck cab looks "trashy" to the snooty class A crowd.

Elite-ism comes to campgrounds!?

Yikes -

Sounds like the NIMBY (NOT in MY back yard) crowd is going to the campgrounds - and having their rules go with them!?

Campgrounds are FOR camping right? Be it tent, van, Class C, etc.... Of course there are the exculsive places, but seriously, they are going to frown on folks actually camping?!?

I'll repeat! YIKES!

Hope I never run accross them, or they WILL KNOW where I stand on this issue.

Peace

Axel

Alan has seen it first hand but here's a photo. I carry my bike in the back. The only fumes are mine as when we ride we eat...
I have used it to haul the rototiller back to the rental place. Just need to work out some ramps, the stairs are tough on wheels .

Looks like an 'after' Jackcon Center work... It shouldn´t be too hard to do, they just lift the Endcap... Probably will need a strengthend frame and support to the shell. Just a guess!!

Cool!

Yes, that one is EXACTLY what I had in mind. Just like a C-5 Galaxy's nose swinging, or like the new Boeing 747 LCF...whoops, don't know how many know'bout that one yet.... .

Seriously though, this thing is cool!
