Can't remember where I found this pic, but I just had to save it for future reference.

I can't think of any situation in which I'd actually use it, but my inner child still finds it awesome. If you had a spare Sebring body, would you make one?

I think it's pretty neat and a useful conversation piece if you go to car shows.  At one time, many street rod shows gave trophies for the most interesting/unique trailer.

Having traveled for almost a decade in a 2 seat T bucket roadster with less storage than a big motorcycle, I can attest to the usefulness of a trailer, especially if you are going to spend a weekend at a car show.  

Here's the one I pulled.  It's a reproduction of a Mullins Red Cap from the 1930's.

I won't be pulling it much with the Healey since it has enough storage for normal traveling, but if I go to a show, I'll want to take a canopy, ice chest and maybe even  my small portable grille. Makes for a nice tailgating get together with friends.

That trailer looks badass! Love the shape. Can agree on the storage situation, though I've found the Sebring to have a surprising amount of it. I've done a few Costco runs with it and once strapped foam building materials to the top for a short, low speed, city trip. Fun fact, the parcel shelf is a great nest area for a well behaved dog of almost any size.

Funny that you mention that because my car had a seat belt mounted on the shelf and the carpet was covered with dog hair.  At least I think it was dog hair! Very Happy
