DeLorean of fiberglass?

Wisconsin Surplus Online Auction - Selling Wisconsin Surplus Government Assets Online
This item is on auction a few blocks from our house by a online auction outfit. Bet you never saw one like it! Looks like three piece construction, suitable for your emergency disaster needs. If you had the time and talent (I don't) might be a fun project. Cabinets for internal support, cut windows in, canvas on gull wings? Only at $261, ends at the end of this week. PM me if you want me to take a closer look.
Tony

Sorry the link only goes to auction site. Type "trailer" in search. Auction number #17514-03, item in that auction is #1956. Hope somebody can fix the link.

I don't know that the site can be directly linked, but I grabbed a couple of pictures from the auction.

I'm in a phone booth baby...

Looks like a portable phone booth - even with one low down for someone in a wheel chair.

Wayne Collins-- yup, that's exactly what it was designed to be, a phone trailer! I didn't have any idea such a thing existed--I thought they'd have their phone set-ups in a van. Whoever "they" are. It was in the link DonnaD provided, but my computer decided to act very badly for a while and now I'm being lazy and not looking it up again.


BEST

with the overwhelming adoption of cell phones....

I'm not surprized this is being "unloaded"....instead of the phone booth trailer it could be called the buggy whip trailer....all that's needed now are charging stations....and they could be in a suitcase!

Lots of cool factor! Even if someone parted it out, there are several hundred dollars worth of electrical components not to mention axle and wheels (with original 11 year-old tires?), etc. Or convert it into a traveling pet kennel for dogs and cats to make a few bucks boarding pets at rallies when the owners want to go on a day excursion and don't want to take their pets with them or leave them behind unattended. Interesting pallet for someone's imagination and ideas....

I love the two built-in awnings/ hurricane shutters! Kitchen on one side, bed with fold out table on the other! Just cut a few windows, gut behind the walls for a potty room and storage, and it's a go!
Hahaha...hmmm🤔

Measure the inside space, will you? Can't tell how wide the nose space is, but the aisle looks like about 2' wide.
