1984 Great Dane 48’ Semi-Trailer
Originally the Lotus show car trailer with nose bathroom/office (removed), it has been converted to haul 3 full-size sedan cars with an open testing/utility layout inside, with an open top deck for easy access to work on underside of cars at track.
Kubota GL-6500S LowBow Diesel Generator
$8k worth of C-Tech cabinets and workbench installed, as well as additional diamond-plate cabinets in front nose area
Tons of E-track
Observation deck (removed for indoor storage height constraint, but available to be reinstalled by new owner).
Skylight (left from removal of large satellite dish) does not leak (10 years plus) and provides ample natural light
48’x20’ Bruce Custom Awning (formerly High Tech Transporter Awnings) included with both the old Lotus cover (green/white) and a newer Bruce Custom Awning (formerly High Tech Transporter Awnings) white with blue cover with removable BimmerWorld branding (patch is stitched on)
Well-maintained, fresh blue paint in 2008, shows well. All records, tags, and DOT inspections are current. We have run this transporter for the last 11 years across the country and would take it anywhere and continue to use it. Tremendous and unexpected opportunity on new replacement unit forces sale.
