Well, this is going to be interesting. I've just bought the referenced trailer. It's in Northern Michigan, I'm in Los Angeles. I'd seen it on a trip back there, thought my way through the re-design of the interior, ways I want to use it, etc.
So now comes the horror and heartache.
The plan is to use the trailer for a rolling showroom/trade show display/office and...yeah, a place to stay out on the road.
The dream is to get a 1 1/2 ton cab-only truck, mount a Tesla home battery behind the cab, a platform for an electric Smart Car (or similar), solar panels and have an all-electric drivetrain, services for the trailer (magnetic induction cooking...) and so on. I may wind up with an un-polished camper pulled by a 99 GMC gasoline engine Suburban, but hey, reach for the stars, right?
I'm in the design business and have some ideas about how to engage state-of-the-art residential kitchen, bath and sleep systems in this trailer, and I'm interested in developing systems that everyone can use, incorporating readily available off-the-shelf pieces and parts.
That said, I'm a total newbie, and I'm sure many of the seasoned owners here will think I'm a bit...odd. No worries, I'm used to that by now, but many of my best clients thought that exact same thing and we're still talking...and they're living in homes that literally changed their lives.
So here's to new challenges, new lessons, and a ton of new knowledge.
Any comments will be gratefully received.
All the best,
