Possible source of rigs to convert
Hi, I'm new to Skoolie, and decided to put in my two cents on an idea I've been considering.
Recently I was at a car delivery yard, this is the place where automobiles are offloaded from trains, and loaded onto 'portable parking lots' for delivery.
I had noticed some two or three dozen truck/trailer car transport rigs sitting there idle, and asked about them. They were for sale.
These are articulated rigs, not a conventional 5th wheel setup. The trailer 'floors' are VERY low to the ground, and once the hydraulics are removed, the steel could be cut and rearranged/welded to make a very sturdy frame for the living area.
And if you want to haul a personal rig around, you can keep the rear ramp active, and haul your vehicle instead of a toad.
What do you think?
BTW, the first 5th wheel conversion rig I saw was back in the EARLY '70's, even had space for two horses on the back....dunno if it was a Winnebago prototype or not, but seemed pretty nice at the time.
The tool storage is nice, but where do I put the bed?
