Mother Ship Lobby Desk

Looks like Jackson Center is remodeling. The desk they had sitting in the lobby is listed on Ebay. Happy bidding....

Nice find.
It's kind of cool, but not $1300 cool IMO. I just don't need another desk that bad.
I wonder if the clearcoat is still good....

Not sure about the clearcoat - but the wraps probably have wicked scuff marks...

nah, they routinely have sold these,

or other similar examples in the past...

i think the actual counter top surface is different on the lobby unit...

and so are the led tail lights...

although the one don uses pre-tour is very very close to that.

but the one listed is a DESK, so the height is only 29 inches, not like the counter/displays they have...

i wonder if it has any SIGNS OF CORROSION or SEPARATION yet?

cheers

I'm sure it's in good shape - they probably sent it out to have the running gear balanced....

It would be a perfect campground bar with a few minor modifications.

I'd be more concerned about leaks. I wonder how it passed the old bubble test...

I suggested to Rich I really needed this desk to help with writers block but he didn't go for it! Don't blame me if you find an issue in the near future without one of my articles in it!

Yea, this is not their first time selling trailer furnature. The Bambi bar was one other, here are some pics of it. I think some of these are simply awesome, but remember I'm kind of an Aluminut, so, I'm a bit biased.

It's a nice piece.
