Very clever, fill the bucket with ice cold wine, and then lie down under the spigot hose. That would save me the step of collapsing on the ground after consuming all that wine. I like it. Tongue in cheek.

When you are lying under the trailer trying to get a sip of wine from the drain tube, and there is nobody onboard to open the spigot, it might be nice to have a remote controlled valve. Maybe an ap on the phone to control it.
I can see it now, you and your sweetie lying under the trailer on a romantic night, taking turns getting a sip, trying to keep the blowing dust out of your eyes and keep the candles lit.
Then someone has to go back inside and re-fill the bucket!
Am I missing something?

Love it, that Chardonnay does look good and itís not in a ice bucket. How do you do it! .....Is that a invisible cold halo circling that bottle? Real clever, best idea I have seen so far. lol

I gave up drinking in frustration. The jostling of the trailer kept bruising the wine.

I've no idea what that means, but I'd guess no one is going to bring an expensive and delicate vintage on a road trip. Locating the rack near the front of the trailer would reduce jostling. Remember what the back seat of the school bus was like?

I'm not sure I understand the need for a built-in wine cooler, either. You might want to take it outside for al fresco dining. Surely a drop in or free-standing would serve as well?

But what do I know?! I love these elegant and creative solutions to problems I didn't even know I had!!!

Carry on, Seaross!
