035.jpg After hauling to shows on an open flat trailer for yrs, i finally got the trailer dreams are made for. We used to put an apache camper up on the back of the old trailer so we had some place to live for the week(end) that we where out. One day i notice that the trailer just sat there empty all the time, so why not combined the two. Buying a 8x18 enclosed with a ramp door, a 16' awning and an RV style side door, i carpeted the inside, add shelves, cupboards, and hooks to the walls. Next i made a folding bed system, so after the tractors are unloaded, the whole trailer becomes a house. I will install a shower stall before next yr, that works off a 15gl 12V sprayer, painted black so i can have a warm one at the end of the day. I tested it out in July in a crude way going to my annual DB show near Chicago, worked out fine, and found out what things i needed to change to be perfect. This trailer is going to take a lot off my tractor budget, but will make going a whole lot more fun. Heres some inside pic's, as the outside looks just like any old white trailer.:wave:

Very nice. It will definitely make going to shows a lot easier. The shower will make it even better. You will have to let us know what the temp of the water gets to then. I know it wouldn't be hot enough for my wife but I am sure I would be happy.
