Soon you'll be able to haul a car in one of the toy hauler models for one of Forest River's most infamous brands - the Work and Play.

Forest River designed its new Work and Play 38CH recreational transport to be the heaviest-duty toyhauler in its market. The cargo trailer frame gives the new Work & Play a payload of 7000 pounds riding on tandem axles. Slideouts, furniture packages including TVs and 17 feet of garage length with an "escape hatch" near the car driver's door are all part of the new design.

RV toyhaulers have long been a staple of motorsports enthusiasts, hobbyists and small business owners. Now car show participants also get in on the fun. The amenities in this trailer allow a car owner to transport his trailer queen anywhere in the country and stay for an entire event.

This new fifth wheeler allows owners to transport a car to an auction or show site completely protected from the elements. The Work & Play 38CH is the top of the line as a recreational transport, providing accommodations such as a queen size bed, tub, shower, toilet and refrigerator. This is enough garage space for one large vehicle. All while providing the comfort of a travel trailer in the same package. That describes what could be the perfect vacation base camp.

Work and Play general manager Lawton Tinley says the 38-foot prototype model shown at this winter's Louisville Show will be updated based on dealer feedback.

"The Work and Play is a true hauler that's Herculean in strength," Tinly said, "... but we want to add plenty of comfort to make it very liveable."

With a GVWR of only 18,138 lbs. (8,227 kg) and an overall length of just 41 ft. 6 in. the 38CH makes efficient use of resources. Water capacity is 110 gallons, with gray water and black water tanks that hold 38 gallons each.

The Heavy Duty Work & Play by Forest River is suggested at $62,300.
