Introducing Big Bertha, mobile glass makin'machine

I have so far been unsuccessful in finding a new shop. My new thought is... why not take it with me?

I have several places where I can park a trailer, popular locations. And a couple buildings that are month to month, and in a great location. BUT they are for sale, and I could be asked to leave at any time, so I can't invest in hanging a hood etc.

Enter the 1970s inline horse trailer. It seems perfect for my application. Put the furnace over the front axle, weld on the yolk and stands to the fenders. The tool boxes on the side are blow pipe sized, and the middle door could be for my annealer.

I have two exhaust fans. I'm wondering if I could stick one on top of the trailer (permanent), and one on the top of the month-to-month building with some sort of "quick connect" ducting system on the second, so it's legal to be parked inside. It basically has a hood built in. That way my total investment in the building is $5k or less.

The only problem is it's a rusty POS and I can't figure out how to back the f****** thing up. It's totally impossible with the front axle the way it is. It might actually be damaged.
