This is a 12:1 scale of our 5th wheel camper. We have dragged this all over the country over the past 10 years. It is a “Toy Hauler” and we use that part of the unit a lot. Surges, NE, motorcycle. Nebraska deer hunting, a 4 wheeler, tractor show, well…...Constructed from 100% wood and all hand built. All Red Cedar except the top and wheels, they are poplar. I have to admit I did cheat on the awning and use a store bought dowel. Shame, shame, shame. We changed out the factory vinyl to hardwood so I did it here too.

How’d the Hardwood floors work out hauling 4 wheeler, etc…. I have a 27” pull behind Toy Hauler and have thought of doing the same thing.

Very awesome!
