Smile What "Class" would this be, anyway?

I started with a cargo ('box') trailer from Pace; it's pretty good. Then I started building in walls and goodies. The computer talks through the speakers of the radio; it lets me know when it's time to wake up, warns me of things, etc.

I have a QUEEN sized bed, a shower/potty that's 3ft-by-4.5ft, central heat, A/C on the way, and comfy storage room. I also have a full-sized computer workstation and did it in only 14 feet. When you break all the "RV Rules" you can do whatever you want!

The plan is, when Mom no longer needs me, to take the vehicle out on the road and tour the 46 states I visited before I was 15. Then do the rest.

If you're interested, here are some photos. Keep in mind it's still under construction. I hope to give people ideas.

Several manufacturers are making those trailers into toy haulers. The trailer looks like a cargo trailer with an RV a/c on the roof, a side door, and a couple of windows. Everything folds up into the walls/ceiling, so you can put that quad in there. I (briefly) considered doing something similar, but went with a purpose-built travel trailer instead.

It doesn't matter what class it is, it's HOME.

Great job!!! We also took a Pace Cargo trailer (8' x 24') and made it into a semi-camper. We bought the one with the rear drop down door to load our 4-wheelers and also, my husband is handicapped so the drop-down door was great for him to go in/out in his wheelchair.

Across the front of the unit, we had countertop with stainless sink and cabinets underneath and on the wall above. The countertop had electric outlets mounted flush at each end. A friend helped my husband mount the electric and water hookups into the outer wall just like a regular camper, so that when we pulled into a campground we could hook up to their 110.
We put a porta-potty near the rear door and we used the track rail on the ceiling above it and I made a curtain to fit and it would enclose the potty when closed. We also had a row of cabinets along the side walls with rods attached underneath that allowed our clothes to hang flush against the walls.

We found a really neat screen unit at an RV place on Hwy. 153, North Gate area in Chattanooga. This attached to our rear doorway and allowed us to leave our ramp door down when camping and be able to enjoy fresh air with no bugs getting in, it also had a privacy section you could drop down at night.

We did not live in ours unit, but used it for hauling our 4 wheelers and my husbands Argo Conquest 8 wheeler. We would pull into a campground, set up camp outside, unload our atv's, lay out our air mattresses and we were ready to camp.

Wish I had my photos of our rig, but we are in New Mexico workamping and photos are in storage.
Good luck with your unit.
