We sold our RV, so it was time to find a truck to pull our 24′ cargo trailer camper conversion. We weren’t married to any particular make or model, only a good deal and I think we found it!
Our new truck is a 2005 Dodge 3500 Dually with only 133k miles on a 5.9 cummins diesel. We bought it for $10,000. The plan is to finish converting our 24′ trailer into a living space AND mobile workshop so we can travel the country and make DIY videos with you!
For those out of the loop:
We had an idea to travel the country in an RV and mobile workshop helping our viewers with their DIY projects called “Makers on the Move.” We left for a month in November 2016 and found the 40′ RV and 24′ trailer way too long. We sold the RV and are converting our trailer to include a living space AND mobile workshop. We needed a truck to pull the 10,000 lb trailer and this is it!

Our Plan Explained:
In this episode we help John build an oversized sewing/quilting table that he bought the plans for 10 years ago! It’s made of simple 1×4 pine and plywood components. It has loads of storage and a built in ironing board!
In this episode we build a kid’s loft bunk bed with built-in homework desk, storage bench, and reading area. All of the stair steps have hidden drawers with plenty of space on the bookshelves and night stand for everything a kid could want!
We’ve decided we’re going to vlog our transition into RV living for the next 30 days. In this episode we discuss a few things we’re nervous about and some things we are excited about.
Follow along as we drive our 1999 Monaco Dynasty towing a 24 foot enclosed trailer (Ultimate Mobile Workshop) around the country helping viewers with their DIY projects!
Makers on the Move is officially happening! We’ve decided we’re going to start our new adventure October 24th.
Here’s the plan – You submit a project idea that you’d like to build with us at makersonthemove.tv. If selected, we’ll work over email to come up with a design you like. You buy the materials and we’ll cover everything else.
We’ll come in our RV with the Ultimate Mobile Workshop and film the process from start to finish. We’re looking for fun, unique, and interesting projects that can be completed in a weekend (or week if your schedule allows).
Looking forward to meeting you!
