R/V Carhauler - 70 Dodge Charger

My 1980 s1700 Bus will do it all! Hopefully! Black and Silver! The inerior wall in the back can be removed so a car can be loaded and the rear frame cut and tilted.

Opening rear doors with the bed tilted for vehicle entry!

Interior with wood ramps!

Interior plans!

RV plains!

RV concept!


The 1970 Dodge Charger! Oh-yeaha!


I have bought a 7.3l diesel and AT 545. It will replace the 345 gas and IH 5spd trans.

The vehicle will be winched up and down. A angle piece of wood or metal along the tracks will keep the front wheels steering straight when loading and unloading.

Re: R/V Carhauler - 70 Dodge Charger

have you considered a bed mounted on air struts that rides against the ceiling (or near to it on a curved roof) that is above the car when in motion, then pulls down once at the destination? I have seen these in toy haulers before and thought they were pretty slick.

No I haven't. There will be two ramps coming out the back about 12ft long and will hook on the back bumper.
