I'm guessing that he used a 5X8 no floor trailer carcass....or does it look bigger?
What do you think?

That's neat! Like the concept for a number of reasons.

Thanks for sharing.

That's amazing! It does look like it's 5 by 8 to me. Maybe he used one of those with the grid floor you see for sale everywhere?

I like that setup. It beats having to unload when you get to farmers market and the iif its a slow day reloading everything plus its alot more attractive then working off of tables

That wagon is about the neatest thing have seen for a long time! Martin, maybe he would share his instructions with you, or even for a small fee. Sure would save the setting up and dismantling time, talk about a time and frustration saver!
Have to say, were it me, would not have the upper and lower drop-down shelves, screen in the windows & door, have it on the ground, and make it a summer kitchen for canning, maybe would need to be a tad bigger, not sure, but...would think had died and gone to heaven G

When I lived in the city, I bought some of my veggies from a guy set up on an empty lot. He had something simliar. I think it was built on an 8x16 trailer. He had a door towards the back and in front were some more shelves. He handed down from the trailer. Neat set-up. He had a regular place so sometimes, he would leave it there and just bring in new stock the next morning.

That is really cool!!! I may just have to have one of them. I think I could build it from the picture if no plans are available, at least I know I could get close. That is NEAT!!!
