No, I didn't win the lottery. Too cheap to buy a ticket. On the other hand, here is a question for you: Given the right circumstances (you already have a fiberglass trailer that suits you just fine, a LOT of money left over from your job as a hedge-fund manager, too much time left over after volunteering for Habitat for Humanity, good health as you retire at 55, and an overwhelming desire to tackle a complete make over of the most desirable fiberglass trailer you can think of, (which describes a significant % of our members, I'm sure
) what design would you search the world for?
The idea is that this would be a project on something that inspires you, impresses you with its cleverness, appeals to your sense of style, touches your sense of fairness for having been ignored or failed in the marketplace, and generally sets your creative juices flowing to the point that NOTHING would stop you from restoring, renovating, rebuilding, modifying, and generally immersing yourself in this kind of hands-on work.
We're talking about finding a semi-derelict Oxygen
, Lander, Amerigo
, etc. etc. and making a show-piece of it. You might have to be ready for extensive research, travel, shipping, custom parts-manufacturing, and the necessity for making the reluctant owner "an offer he can't refuse" type of thing.
With this highly unrealistic scenario I long ago became aware of the particular trailer I would do this to (I won't say which one at this point).
Which design would you move "heaven and earth" for?
