Ok so I have been wanting a toy Hauler for my suburban well since before I had the suburban. The problem being the cost of living in so-cal is soul crushingly high. So the priority has been buying a house..... more importantly saving 3 years worth of income to put down on a house. So when I found the suburban as an awesome family 4x4 alternative to a gas guzzling 5mpg 454 3/4 ton the hunt was on. Then came the budget and I found that there was no point to hunting for a trailer for a few years. Well my buddy found the camper in the first pick. As a joke we bought it for $300 without the pit bike. Well it was great for camping and had the atvs in buddy's truck. Then we decide it's time for a hillbilly toy hauler :grd: Soooo here are the pics of the amusing joke build that turned out to be much more fun than you'd think tows great and is my every weekend escape from LA. Soo the first few pics are the add I bought it from, then the finished project pics. The how it did b/w start to finish next

It can fit 2 raptor 700 or 660 quads side by side OR 1 kfx400 quad and a klx400 dirtbike. I have the 3500 watt generator that runs all lights and ac like a dream that goes great with all the gas appliances that work great also. We even had a father daughter concert with my friend dan and his daughter inside the camper escaping the heat see the video link below
