OK, Think I figured out how to post our HDT pic!

Yea, I'm debating as to how much I want to invest into our tiny toter even though I have a bit of room left in my HDT budget. Have been thinking of possibly a custom full diamond plate body but still really sitting on the fence right now. The toter functions really well for our current needs, as it did the previous owners, so i have to ask myself then is the bed going to be more cosmetic in our case. Not really room for a Smart back there.

 

At first I was considering putting a smaller (in length) tank on the drivers side to accommodate a second frame mounted aluminum storage box like the one on the passengers side. But then I like the idea of having all that diesel on board because I'm seriously considering a diesel Onan as our electrical powerplant for boondocking, etc. I like the idea of there plenty of fuel when we get the hurricanes here in Florida and we go weeks without electric! We used to do a lot of hurricane disaster relief project (bringing in supplies and as onsite cold storage unit at the disaster site) and our genset ran nonstop for weeks.

 

I'm thinking of hard plumbing the diesel supply line to the back of the toter with a cutoff valve at the tank an inline primer pump for priming. Then connecting between the toter and fiver with a flexible line. That way I won't have to deal with running out of propane on a more often basis.

 

Marv and Connie had the two side and rear window installed when they built this HDT, plus customized the sleeper's interior. I think they did a fantastic job and were quite creative in their design.

Gary...congrat's on your truck! Many times when you have your pictures posted on a hosting site you can right click on the picture and "copy image url" then in the forum just click on the image icon and paste or "ctl v" which will post the copied url.

Darkhorse:

 

Great looking setup. glad to see there are a few besides me that are Tandem.

 

might want to consider full fenders over the axles. A tire coming apart can do ALOT of damage to the front of

the 5th wheel.

Full fenders are 3rd on my list of need to do's, I have "new" recaps on the rears so hopefully with monitoring I wont have to worry about a blow out before I can get the full fenders. Winning the lottery sure would make getting everything I want/need easier!

 

Nice looking rig Gary!

Ah, yes...the LOTTERY. I do have to start playing.....

 

I'd build a brand new 780 with Gregg's Phoenix hydraulic bed. Put a color matched new Brabus on the back. Or a new Spyder F3.

 

I'd pull a custom built Spacecraft semi trailer. All painted the same, of course. Or, maybe I'd build a custom featherlite trailer and get New Horizons to build out the interior.

 

OK...so when is the next drawing...... :)

i put the minimizer 900 fenders on mine. if your axles are 60" apart , you need the extension piece and you will also need the mount kit.

i was in mine about $800ish including shipping for everything.

 

UGH. id ditch those recaps like yesterday... while recap technology has improved... all it takes is one on the front drive to come apart and more than likely will take out one on the rear drive before you get stopped. and then the damage it creates. Yes virgins can cause alot of damage too.

Thanks RickS. It so easy when someone tells ya how to do it, and you can figure it out! LOL

 

Interior shots of how the bed in the sleeper was customized. Love it that it can be used as a comfortable seat for two extra passengers, and the notched out section of the bed can easily be replaced to nap on if need be. We really just needed a comfortable place for Abby the Boston Terrier to stretch out while traveling and not have to be on the hot/cold floor of the cab. 42" sleeper was all she needed! LOL
