    That's a really cool idea! [A]

    A guy in Roanoke makes custom Tear Drops and remodels Air Streams. He actually made the very first Tear Drop where the FRONT pulls out and it all becomes a custom corporate bar!

    Gotta love repurposeing!!

    I used to cater parties, I took an old PUP frame and placed everything on it including a sink, food warmer, grill, cabinets for storage, had plenty of room and it worked great..The old frames make all kinds of neat and useful trailers like the one in the picture.

    That thing is really cool! Used pop ups can be re purposed into many things. I always thought about a tiki bar. A trailer set up for dutch oven cooking is a neat idea too.

    Very resourceful! Love the new purpose built party trailer.

    Do you have any more build details?

    if you read the article that is why the guy built it. He is an avid tailgater. Because a lot of stadiums don't allow alcohol the beer tap is low profile easily hidden.

    I know pups cost more in CA than here in PA, he paid 2K for one to basically gut. For that here you can get a pretty decent pup. I've seen pups for as little as $200 that I wouldn't have felt bad gutting lol.
