Luxurious hunting lodge on wheels helps charities

With burl wood cabinets, leather armchairs, granite countertops, a beaten copper sink and a marble bathroom, Cabin Mfg.’s Bushwacker upgrades the humble American deer camp to a level of luxury more often associated with Alpine hunting lodges and guided African safaris. The 204-square-foot mobile cabin rests on a 24-foot trailer and can be towed behind a pickup truck to set you up in your favorite secluded hunting spot with all the comforts of home (and then some – you’ll probably be sorry to leave when the season’s over).

Interestingly, the Bushwacker didn’t originate with a commission from a wealthy hunter but at the suggestion of a local Kansas landowner involved with the Wounded Warrior Project and the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Adam LaRoche wanted a nice place for beneficiaries of those groups to stay when they visited his property for hunting trips. He brought the idea up with the contractor who’d just done his personal home, Patrick Wood, who loved it and eventually spun it into a new business. He’s now working on a more maneuverable 20-foot sister to the Bushwacker, to be known as the Ridge Runner.
