Roll-Away Scope Shed. REDUCED 50% ONO

Roll-Away 'Cosmo Caboose' is on the Market

This Caboose has been built with all weather conditions in mind, including the quality screws through out.. All Timber has been coated with high-grade 'Intergrain Ultra-Deck' timber oil, , and the walls are quality Western Red Ceder Weather Boards which have had two thick coats when built (approx2.3y ago) & had a 3rd coat prior this summer.

Included are the Quality High Grade Aly Gate-Tracks and wheel/castors that it rolls on.
It is also 99.99% extreme weather proof, Lockable and equipped with a 10w Solar panel which drives the 4" Vent Fan

The big advantage for any who are interested is that it is only 2mtrs in length, therefore can be laid on a trailer in one piece, (No Assembly Needed) - just lay the tracks down on a hard surface & your shed is ready to roll

Sale price $1,000 ONO
Now Looking for offers around $500

EDIT: Last pic, Small Solar Panel to drive the Intake Ventilation Fan --> See next post for Fan installed ...

Caboose 'OutSide' Measurements are as follows:

Length = 2m Includes 12v led outside rear light
Width = 1,270mm Includes outside Shelves, great to put small tools, drinks, Ph Etc on, day or night !
Height = Max 2,330mm
-------------------

Alu Tracks = 3 meters in length, keep in mind the Caboose overhang each end approx 200mm & a very minimum 600mm for door opening clearance. So a very minimum space required length wise is 4 meters. But with that in mind the way it is in situ for here, the Caboose does block some sky to my South, no prob for me seeing I have Gum Trees there - If you need view in the direction the Caboose opens, then I would suggest a space of 5 meters; hence: Height measurement above given.

In addition: Will need an extra length of Track to do so, no problem, the tracks used are the most common supplied for Auto Gate Opening systems and are available just a few kilometers from here, think $40 a 3mtr length if memory serves, cut that in half and you have an extra 1.5 mtrs of travel away from scope...
--------------------

Inside measurements are:

Height = 2,000mm
Width = 800mm max
Length = approx 1,500

Additional pics for a closer look inside.
A couple of shelves with room for more and a larger one can double as a Lappy Table - may need remove the very low board I have at bottom (I used for gear) this will allow a comfortable chair to fit with a little room to squeeze pass or pull chair in after ? Hang a dark sheet over the Door opening, no light to the scope area
