I have always wanted one of those.Sweeet rides.
Would people still call someone trailer trash if they hauled their double wide around with one of these?

I would hope someone with a $100k truck wouldn't own a double wide. But given the way people order their priorities in this country I guess that's entirely possible.

I have seen these cruising around before. Why not just buy a semi? A lot of the drive train is comparable to what you could easily find for a lot less $$$. If the height is a concern you can order a lower cab semi. For that price I'm pretty sure peterbuilt would build a cab with 4 doors at the same height and a lot more power. You still need a cdl to drive the heavier payloads around.

Ok mute it cause the track is used by practly everyone and is anoying but check this out for a lot less.

Peterbilt can build anything you can draw up and they are a American company.

There's one of those for sale not to far from me, never have stopped to see how much because I thought it was a home built creation.

I have been looking at that site and I was pretty amazed at how low the prices are. Its not with in my budget right now, but I would have to say in the next 2 - 3 years I could make that happen. I found a triple axle 5th wheel that appeared in great shape in the pics (of course you would have to look at it first) for only 5k. Amazing.

i have always wanted a Semi pickup. since i drive one every day i almost think my semi is more comfortable then my 2500hd chevy. if i were gonna do it though i'd probably build my own. i want a old peterbilt 379 with a 10 foot pickup style bed. i'd get it with a detroit engine and an 18 speed trans as well as convert it to 6x6. sad part is it can probably be built for less then one of those custom conversions. i have seen older petes for under 20k in running condition. i can also bet mileage wouldn't be that terrible if the engine was tuned right. my old OTR truck got around 16 mpg when bobtail and that was a heavy ass truck with emission controls.

Since they don't have the power to get out of their own way, why not convert to NGLP, and propane injection? If you have that kind of dough to drop on that POS, you can afford to convert it.

My wife's uncle has one similar to this. He has the rear converted to a small sleeping area. The bed of his truck is covered and is the perfect size for one small car to fit in (Model A, Model T or T-bucket usually). If he is going to a car show and is only taking one vehicle, he can take that truck and not need to worry about a trailer.

I know a guy who drives a Kodiak pickup. His penis is tiny. Dude is seriously 5'7" and 140 lbs.

Why would PETA hate this? Is it powered by furry little animals instead of diesel?

I would not want anything to do with a Freightshaker M2 Chassis. The multiplex wiring is something to behold. There is one truck at work you have to turn the turn signal left and honk the horn before the range will shift.
