Car audio installers are creative breeds that often leverage their talents well beyond traditional car installations. The techniques applied in welding, woodworking, plastics, lighting, wiring and audio can all be used in a host of new and exciting ways.
Luke Gray of HardCore Car Audio in Tucson, AZ did exactly that. He applied his creativity and fabrication talent to create the ultimate tailgating trailer; literally a party on wheels. More impressively, anyone attending the game is going to remember HardCore Car Audio!
Start with an idea
As a former Installer of the Year, Luke is no stranger to thinking outside the traditional approach, but was smart enough to know you need not reinvent the wheel either. Rather than engineer a trailer chassis from scratch, he began the build with an idea to utilize and update a modest pop up camper trailer he had so that it could accommodate some of the comforts people enjoy at outdoor gatherings, such as tailgating at University of Arizona football games. “I wanted to create something that would be welcoming to friends when we tailgate at the college football games because we’re often there for several hours at a time” explains Gray.
