Certainly there are the same kinds of deals around you place.

For $750 you get a frame, axles, wheels & tires, and most importantly....A clean title.

I would think 2" sq. box tube framing, probably 1/8" thick (or even 16 ga) on 2' centers.
Pole barn roofing tin all over with self drillers, and your done.

I just thought of something....

If you buy an old camper and scrap it out for the frame...
keep the slide out parts.

Be the first on your block to have a rolling weld shop
with a slide out.

Lol the first thing I thought of when that camper was posted. The thing is really I want to do automotive Fab. It's a means to getting a Fab shop with a tubing bender and maybe a Dyno and a press brake, lifting equipment (besides my back), a press maybe. All the comforts of home, but if I need to weld pipe fence in 3ft of cow poop for a year first.......

Have you considered making a "welding equipment pod" that could be transferred from pickup to trailer, if needed. That would allow for flexibility, rather than being dedicated to one or the other.
