ultimately I would go with the 1981 Ford van painted flat black with a red
diagonal stripe going right through the door and back. Remove the cute
spoiler and replace with an antenna rack. Have the back doors open to
expose a 5 foot dish for the microwaves.  Have BA drive and call yourself
howling Mad!
Cut and paste and build up from this platform

My plans are to use the tongue and two outriggers to stablize the
trailer.  When I orginally drew it up I had the outriggers directly
off the rear of the trailer creating a ~20' or so tri-pod but with 90
/ 90 / 180 angles.  In actuality I would angle the two outriggers to
come as close to 120 degrees apart as possible.
