Our truck, a 2005 Dodge Durango 1500 WLTV, was modeled after the Nissan Xterra, because we wanted an entry level truck that the kids would probably like to drive and they would appreciate the truck. We wanted something that would be more of a ride on a dirt bike, because, as always, it’s a kid thing: If you’re going to ride a truck, you must ride a truck.
Our truck is actually a Dodge Dakota, and we picked it up for about $10,000, so the actual cost to convert it to an RV was probably closer to $15,000. That’s in comparison to what a full-size family pickup is going to start near $10,000, and my wife and I decided to spend $10,000 on a truck because it’s much more fun to be out doing fun things that you can enjoy with the kids as a family than it is working a nine to five job.
How did it end up like this?
I don’t know. I think that the truck is kind of like a cross between a lot of different things. It’s a classic car, but it’s also a truck. It’s a pickup. When we took it to an RVA kid’s camp, we had it there for two days just to see what people thought. I mean, we weren’t going to do it anymore if people weren’t impressed, because we’re out here doing this on a Friday morning and all we did was ride around. But we got tons of feedback because, although we were going out for fun with our kids and it was cool for us to use the car as a platform if we ever needed to take it to another city.
For me, it became a way for me to work on the show. I actually started doing this show a couple years ago when I was in college, when I had a family of my own. So I just figured it could be part of my day as part of my job, and when the show wasn’t doing well, I would do it. The thing that I’m always most excited about is when a guy who is doing this for fun gets to be part of the process of making something that is going to be in high demand.
Are the truck’s paint colors limited?
Not necessarily. We’re a small company, so we’re able to do a lot more on the trucks, but for the most part we just paint them like this. We
