Er, slight flaw in your metaphor - to be accurate, the shop won't
let you even *look* at the trailers if you come on foot (or by
bus, or limo, or private plane, or bicycle).

In fact, they insult you, and tell you to come back in a truck
(and a *Ford* truck, not a Chevy or Toyota) if you even want to
*think* about shopping there.
