I have been thinking about a portable bridge, and also looking at the designs of the guy who tried to kickstart the trailer bridge.

[$_57]

A car shuttle trailer would be a fantastic platform for a portable bridge.
  • It looks like a spaceship
  • With graphics it would look awesome
  • It has a hydraulic controlled tilt. You could wire it up to give you a little jolt when you took damage, something I have not seen anyone do yet.

Does it have a side door, or do you need to drop the back to get people in?

Based on the 5th picture in the ebay listing, it looks like a significant portion of the side folds down for access.

And it's super keen [smile]

Mark I think it is folding up, based on the piston if you zoom in. Pity they did not show a side view with the door open and closed. Not that I am going to buy it in the UK and ship it to the US...

True that! There are US trailers on eBay as well, although admittedly much less sleek.

My problem is in Arizona, it is hell-a-hot.

So you would need a large AC unit to keep it cool most of the year!

Alas I must tear down and setup at Conventions or all my Gamer's would Melt. Maybe one day I can build something like this that can travel with ease.

This trailer is very transport ship like however with some good art on the side you would have an awesome rig.

It is in white and not exactly the same, but quiet similar.
