gas QDs - $8
2" square steel tube (3/16" thick) - $15
1" angle iron (1/8" thick) - $6 (I think, can't remember)
misc screws/strapping/tape/etc. - already had
1 case MGD - $18
poly tube (20' 3/16" thin wall home depot crap) - $3

Total - $57 not including beer, $75 including MGD.
Pouring a beer for the cop that pulls you over - priceless.

I love the ingenuity of it. I know someone that got a small camper for free on craigslist that he gutted and made into a giant kegerator for tailgating at football games. Your idea is much easier to maneuver, and takes up less space at the camp site. I would imagine that if the guy with the camper/kegerator took it camping, he'd have to get two sites.

lol, yeah, I kind of went big with this. Reason was, we do this big camping trip with my buddies from Milwaukee every year. One of them is a homebrewer like myself. This year we decided we each wanted to bring up a keg of our beer to serve. I decided to make the kegerator for us, (his keg got the picnic tap, mine got the faucet ). It worked very well!!!

We have a big BBQ in a few weeks at a friend's house up here. I plan on bringing 2 of my kegs to that one. My wife, who is currently my pregnant DD, was complaining last night, "You mean I have to drive through town with THAT strapped to the back of my truck??". She wasn't as concerned about looks 3.5 hours away in the Wisconsin boonies, but here in the big city she's a bit embarassed....oh well. If I have enough energy, I plan on primering and painting it, as well as grinding and painting the hitch mount, so it looks a bit less ghetto. Also need another cheapie faucet and shank...

I'd be worried about people sneaking up at red lights pulling a pint or 2 .
Cool idea!

That's the new definition of ghetto fabulous. I like it.

P.S. Would it kill you to spend another $4 on a can of paint?

Awesome. It may look like a little piece of the trailer park hanging off your hitch but we know different.

Also my big takeaway from this is that there is a perfectly good welder out there that will only drink MGD. Most disgusting beer on earth

That is awesome! Spray it with a can of flat black and that would look like the sh#t!

I also use a screen tent as a kitchen for camping
