    I really wish I could have made this event, being the 10 year mark and all.
    I'm already starting to get ready for 2017!
    Have an older open trailer that was set up for a formula car.
    It has been dormant/in storage for the past 3 years (since selling off all the racing stuff).
    I picked it up Saturday and have already sliced it up to convert it into the "Trabi Wohnwagen".
    I'm just not sure what color the trailer should be.
    Any suggestions ?

    I would cover the trailer with a box and doors. Keeps away the curious when you are elsewhere. Somebody stole the front license plate off our Trabi on the way down to DC, (just bent it right off) while we were parked at a Ramada Inn.

    I just obtained a Trabant myself and am excited to restore it. Can you give me any tips on getting a title?
