That's an interesting idea, but not at all practical. I don't see any customers wanting to climb around your equipment. Really, bird. You weren't going to do this.
I think that's his plan. I would hate to drag that big trailer around for estimates.

You know a $500 dollar tablet would do all of that and take up less trailer space
