There's been a lot of buzz on the site lately about KennyP's new toy hauler so I thought it's about time to shift the focus to alternatives that us common types can use to haul the toys we find on Craigslist, along the side of the road or any old place them might be.

 

So, to KennyP and all you guys out there who have nice trailers, here's how the rest of us live!

That is one alternative! I just can't see me lifting the Ford or FF up there, though!

Wish I had thought to get a pic of me delivering a free dryer to a buddy in the late 90's. Red 80 something Olds Firenza, with an early 70's avocado dryer strapped on the roof. No roof rack on this car, so a piece of cardboard under and the straps thru the windows making a complete loop.

Had to climb in/out the window... Got more than one look.
Their car was broke down and their dryer was too. They were just happy to get one and couldn't care less how it got there. If I remember right, I got some toll house cookies for doing that :D

The roof panel would make a good fold down ramp.

I have seen some of those before...Really odd...

On a serious note, I have seen guys take an old school bus and cut the back part of the cabin off and use the back 1/2 as a car hauler. Some just make a large back door and store their pulling GT's inside the bus.
