It looks good to me. If nothing else it’s an ideal and a very well equipped base for a horse box or racing coversion. An ideal vehicle for a small car or motorbike racing team, what with the rear ramp. It seem’s it’s had very little use since it’s fit out, so i’m sure that it will still be in a like-new condition.
