Hello Bob. Your message came through. Welcome to FGRV!

By the way - The late (and VERY great!) Mel Blanc was the voice of many of the Warner Brothers (Looney Tunes) Cartoons, while Daws Butler voiced some of the Hanna-Barbera cartoons, such as Huckleberry Hound. The Jetsons was also a Hanna-Barbera show, featuring the late George O'Hanlon as the principal voice actor

The body seems to be styled on a Dodge Tradesman van. Is the whole thing fibreglass? Love to see some more pics? It looks really neat!

That's cool, now to find the Dodge van to pull it.

I normally wouldn't even consider something that is posted as "rare," I buy things because I like them. Normally RARE means it will sell for about 5x what it should. BUT, this is kinda cool and the price is reasonable too.

RE: Van Mate Trailer.
It's not my trailer, I just looked at it and posted the info. Drop a line to owner/list member "Bob Guilliams" (He has also posted in this thread) and ask. I see the ad is gone off of C/L but it may have just expired.
Good Luck
