Axles are for travel, this one needs cinder blocks.
The sad part is it looks better than mine
But, then again, it doesn't have the original tail lights so it may as well be retired from service, right?
My first vehicle was a '58 VW Transporter that had been a chicken coop for many years prior to being renovated, so this doesn't really bother me. It's just the current incarnation of this classic travel trailer and it's serving a good purpose(though not what some would consider good). I would bet the floor and axles are shot and the rodents have been in there for some time now, so in five or ten years, when someone sees this and buys it to make love to it(I mean renovate it), it probably wouldn't be much worse than it is now. The only thing that may deteriorate significantly is the frame and belly pan, which may be shot already as well.
Happy chickens make tasty eggs. I had 37 assorted fancy layers up until the beginning of last year but they didn't get to stay in the Safari.

Cheers,
Rich the Viking

Happy for your birds, sad for your trailer. That one'll need a fully Monte someday. Its a shame to see such a straight shell all couped up like that.

This reminds me of the story about the hen that laid the SILVER egg.

Mine IS furnished just like this, except for the hens and straw.
It's soooo easy to clean!

This is "poultry in motion", you could have a traveling egg business.

Oh yeah...we just love the El Cheapo! The chickens just started laying now and boy-o-boy are they good. As for the axle(singular)it works just fine. The belly is a little screwed up...nothing major though. I hauled this baby from Norfolk, Va to here in South Dakota last year. Traded a 1500 dollar motorcycle for it.
It was originally going to be our guest house, but our new guests just dig it immensely.It is all about not letting our stuff rule our lives...all this crap is going to burn some day anyway!
