Here is a picture of how the ramp secures to the back of the truck during transport.






I ended up putting a bathroom in the rear box. The shower is approx 32" x 35".







And the water tanks. The wires hanging down are for the tank level monitors, which obvioulsy aren't wired yet. 73g of fresh water, 36 gray and 36 black. I can hook up to a pressurized system (city water) or use the 110V pump.



The bathroom is about 36" wide, which leaves me just enough room to get a RZR up front next to the bathroom. Eventually that area will get a large tool chest and cabinets, but I need the floor space for KOH so that part of the project won't go in until after KOH.



I put in a lot of overhead storage. The shelves leave about 16" of room from the shelf to the ceiling on the side walls. It is made to fit the rugged style plastic bins. In the center of box it leaves about 20". The front of the box is a full 4'x8' over head storage area.

Nice Bill. I like the overhead storage.... a lot! Why 110V water pump versus 12V? Or am I missing something on what the chassis provides?

well, it was a nice truck. Your attempt at a camper/hauler is leaving a lot to be desired. The interior of this thing reminds me of the "backwoods" build on pirate. just because you can doesn't mean you should

95% of the places I go to have 110V hookup. KOH is really the only place that wont. Right now I don't have a bank of batteries for the box portion, and I don't want to run accesories off the bank of batteries that the truck relies on.

It's not meant to be a country club. It's a portable garage.

I don't think it's finished yet.

I really think you should consider a 12V pump also. An extra battery tucked away will give you water wherever you are at and once you have it you will really enjoy it. An example for me was a trip to the Badlands. Dusty and dirty as hell. Jump in the Motorhome for a quick 2 minute shower had me primed and ready for a long drive home instead of feeling grungy and tired. In fact, I think I have a pump you can have.

Look, its the hilljack calling the engineer a hillrod...

Do we really need to BTT your dueling banjos build thread to point out the irony in what you are saying?

I think he's doing a wonderful job at putting together a rig that meets all our needs, comfortable to travel in and drive, capable to tow the buggy, friends toys, all the tools and gadgets we need, functional 'living' space, and all for a better value than our previous set up/the 'average' set up. I love the toter, it's so much fun, so functional, and unique.

Put this up against our previous superduty/gooseneck set up on our week long trip to KOH and 72+ hour round trip drive and this set up will be leaps and bounds more comfortable, and we won't be stinky by the end of the trip.

Besides, many other racers who have to travel 6+ hours for races all have their eyes on moving to a 'toter'.

Any more questions??????

This is just an idea - you have room in your O/H storage to put a ducted HVAC system and have heating and cooling w/o something stuck on top of the rig. :)

Um, I can't show support for the hard work my husband is putting into this thing? I'm proud of our toter, it's pretty BA.

Can't take a little sas from a woman?
