The Wolfe Racing Hauler - 2010|
Here is the story of the new hauler and its transformation from a basic mail truck into a decked-out, high-class race car toterhome. And yes, it was in fact a mail truck in its previous life.
The team had a fairly large undertaking over the winter of 2009-2010. We decided to tackle the problem of building a toterhome. When you take a look at purchasing one, you find that it’s pretty expensive. That’s just not us, so we built one. How does one go about that? Well, you start with an old mail truck…again, yes, you read that correctly. Then you add a talented fabricator, carpenter, metal man, cabinet maker, a painter, a few used parts, some new parts, a whole lot of red paint and hundreds (maybe even thousands) of hours of hard, manual labor, and voila…you get yourself a fully customized toterhome. Trust us...it is much easier said than done.
The process of transforming a mail truck into a toterhome is a long one. It took about 5 months of very long weekends to get the job done. This page is dedicated to this project and the work that went into making it happen. The finished product is nothing short of a masterpiece and it has already transformed the way the team goes to the race track. It has been said more than once that this is the first and last motor home project that is to ever be taken on by the team.
We have a lot of people to thank for their help on this truck: Jonathan Hill, Jay Shockey, Wolfes Garage, Eric Champ and Jerry Riggleman at South Fork Auto & Body. Without them, this project may not have made it to the finish line.
Below are photos of the truck at different times during its transformation.
