Home made car hauler?

Post by Reb Stew on February 1st 2014, 2:34 am

I have been thinking about something like this for years. I use to see them all the time. I like the idea a lot. I just wonder what the DOT would say. It looks like they would have a field day with it not counting what the troopers at the weigh station would say. Any thoughts?

Those old used buses were used a ton for tractor pulling back at the county fairs. The would leave th back on, build in a ramp, then load the dragster style pullers in them, pretty cool.
I got a buddy up near Columbus who just bought an older bus, he will be gutting it to make it into a camper.

You can still come across them pretty cheap.

Buddy of mine made one for his dirt track car. Talked to him a couple weeks ago because i was wanting to do something like this. He said he got the bus for 2600. But im not sure how much he spend on stuff to make it a hauler.

Non-Comm.....Weigh station has no say in it.....troopers also, Non Comm, unless you were doing something wild....how many times you see them pull over regular trucks.....NEVER.......

Be thankful that OH will turn a blind eye to one ton pickups, race car haulers, and trailers behind pickups. Of course always keep in mind that NY is the #1 revenue generating state in the union, but if there is a roadside commercial vehicle inspection, with the "all trucks must enter" sign, they mean all trucks. I found that out one time. The feller was pretty tweaked when he pulled me over, asking if I saw the sign. I said that I had, to which he asked me what type of vehicle I was driving. I told him a pickup. He said that it is a pickup truck. I said nothing. He continued that since it was a pickup truck, that I was expected to enter as the sign said. I replied that I was under the interpretation it was for over the road trucks and such over 10,000#, and not for private vehicles. He informed me that I was to stop, and that it was up to the officer on duty to determine through questioning whether or not each pickup truck was a commercial entity, or a private operator. If the determination was made that it was a personal vehicle and not a commercial operation, that vehicle would be waved through. I guess you need a scorecard to determine if you need to pull in in NY. And with a trailer behind it is a whole different ballgame. And you can register a pickup in NY with passenger plates, provided its unladen weight is under around 6000# or something like that. Each trip to DMV requires a lawyer to determine what to do for your vehicle registration any more. Why can't this deal be federal like they claim it is?

I think it could be really cool to build a car hauler out of a bus

I was thinking about it for myself but I got something now.

As a side note on hauling the gasser... I do know where a bus is. A 1951 Chevy school bus.  cheers
