What is a Toter Home?

A guy up the road has a Toter home for sale, it looks like a semi truck front end, and its trailer looks to be part camper, part enclosed trailer, he is asking $68K for it. Not sure what a Toter home actually is though? Im guessing it a rich persons camper?

Isn't that something a person motorsports would own they could pack a race car and have living quarters ?

Trailer toters are usually a low pro medium duty set up to pull RV trailers.

This toter is heavy duty, as its front half and cab is Kenworth, full size semi truck up front and has a very long and tall sleeeper cab, but I guess they come in all sizes? A family could definitely live out of this thing!

a toter home is a semi streatched out and turned into a motor home used to pull a large inclosed trailer, usualy a "stacker" so you can fit race cars on the upper deck of the trailer and storage/tools/work space on the lower level. A toter home can be done with a cut out to pull the stacker in goose neck form or a flat back to pull the trailer in tag.

Illegal? Over what length do they become illegal? We live right in the middle of several stock car tracks around here and these things come and go, although not quite that big. Friend of mine's dad has one of them babies just sittin idle at his shop and hasnt used it in several years (although again not quite as big as the pics posted.) They are frieken sweet if you like anything to do with motorsports.

That black truck with the flames wouldn't be legal in B.C. it is too long and spread axle trailers are not legal. Maximum overall length allowed here in B.C. is 69 feet. A regular highway tractor with a 53 foot trailer is tight you get a triaxle 53 and they don't turn that easy.

I could live out of one of those big boys? But then again, they are probably more expensive than my house?! Im not sure what my neighbor has one for, he doesnt have race cars or toys? maybe he uses it for a really nice RV? His house is freaking huge, so I guess hes got the extra money! Im guessing he probably had to get his CDL-A to even drive that thing, but maybe there is an exemption if it is a truck you drive for pleasure and you own it?
