I doubt I'm going to find one of these babies anytime soon. I'd like to build something close to the same size. Can anyone point me to the dimensions?

Looking for pics of anyone's wiring from bus to the trailer as far as connections are concerned.
I have an idea of what I want to do but am looking to see how everyone else did theirs.

Pick the style plug you like at your local Trailer Supply Store!
I'm sure there is a variety on these trailers.
I have a horizontal 4 wire plugin with a rubber cap on my pickup for my tow dolly. Idea

I am in the process of restoring me Essen. Is the wood marine grade plywood, birch or mahogany? What have others used to stain or seal the wood? It appears the lid and floor are thicker than the walls. What are the thicknesses?
