Unusual Fiberglass rig parked down my street

This rig appeared on my block last Summer. Seems the driver was a friend of one of my neighbors. She reported that its very hard to drive.

I heard only a few of these were ever made. Sales were poor due to limited inside space and strange meat product odors.

Hot dog, these things were the wurst RVs ever, but I relish the thought of owning one, as their beds are soft as bread!

Madison Wisconsin was the home of Oscar Meyer for 98 years, til last year. I suppose they moved to China like many American businesses. Seems $15 per hour is just too much for tube steak makers.

They may be the "Wurst" But the "Brats" on the commercial say everyone would be in love with it.

Not to get into namecalling but if you couldn’t drive one of those you’d be a wienie. On the other hand if you dumped the clutch and got some scratch you’d be a hot dog. Old folks like me remember seeing them as a kid and still seeing one once in a while these days. What? I’m not bunny? You gotta ketchup.

My wife, Leslie, (AKA Old Bag ) was AKA a Hot Dog Lady at the kid's school. Long-time volunteer, managing and working Hot Dog Day.
The other volunteers arranged a special event. One lunch time, the Oscar Mayer Weinermobile pulled up at the school, picked her up and drove her around the school while the kids waved at her buns. We still have a couple miniature plastic "cars".

In '62 Little Oscar & his Weinermobile stopped at our local shopping center cheered on by hundreds of kids. Kind of wish I still had one of the little cars he passed out to us.
What an RV that would make though.....pretty much everyone would remember seeing it and getting a 100x more folks asking for a look than our eggs get.

Reminds me of the old 3 stooges joke. I used to work at the bakery...
I got tired of the dough and went on the loaf.
