Mobile Office/Showroom

Hey Guys,
I recently purchased my already gutted '74 Sovereign and have begun the transformation to a mobile office/showroom. (I am a sales rep for a shoe company and I cover a 4 state region in the Rockies) reference a "Back to the Future" line, (a la "I figured if I was going to make a time machine why not do it with some class..." [in reference to the delorean]

I have already begun using this to show my lines and my accounts are very pleased with it so far!

I have been very careful as I have prepped this trailer for my use, to NOT do any irreversible "damage" to the trailer, on the chance I will sell it down the road (and sort of so as not to upset the purists :-)

I have loaded some photos under my profile...I would love to get any ideas or insight on how I can make this even cooler!

I wouldn't be too worried about upsetting the purists, nor anyone else for that matter, it's your trailer, make it your own. Express yourself. As long as you are improving on what it was before, you are doing a good thing. Some pretty cool looking shoes there. Good luck with your project.

That looks like a pretty nifty way to be a traveling salesman---they used to knock door-to-door with boxes in their hands.

Are you preserving some of the living area there, such as kitchen, bath, a sleeping area, or will you be living and staying elsewhere while on the road?

🏡 🚐 Cherish and appreciate those you love. This moment could be your last.🌹🐚

All it needs now is a wrap job of a shoe on the side...

Thanks for the encouragement! I am pretty happy with it so far!!

I will eventually get it up to par so I can sleep in it, but I'm considering it to be more like a tent you don't have to set up. I'm keeping it rustic for the time being. I want to keep the space open and clean and simple.

As far as logos or decals I plan to keep it pretty clean on the exterior. Reason being is twofold, to keep it classic and to not draw attention to the potential thief. All I have single shoes, no pairs... But some people are dumb and mean :-)

What do you think about a die cut logo on shiny aluminum vinyl? Any thoughts in what that might do to the exterior if removed?
