Keith McCord reporting Next week you'll have the opportunity to buy some items that were used by a number of famous Hollywood stars. In fact, you can buy a place where they used to live!
A company in Utah County that provided the on-site trailers for stars to stay in has gone out of business, and now the trailers are for sale.
What do: "High School Musical", "Touched By An Angel"; "Spiderman", "Million Dollar Baby" and "Legally Blonde II" all have in common? Well, the stars of those productions spent their down time inside trailers manufactured and leased from Johnson Production Services in Lindon, Utah.
Rob Olson, president of Erkelens & Olsen Auctioneers, said, "They made the actors and actresses very comfortable just prior to them going out and doing their lines on the set."
The trailers are quite fancy! Granite, leather, satellite TV systems, carpeting, big beds. The trailers and amenities are worth several million dollars. But the company has gone bankrupt, so, next Tuesday, everything will be sold at an auction.
"We have 28 trailers that we're going to be auctioning off. They're all on site here, all open for preview," Olson said.
There's also a 9,100-square-foot warehouse with three unfinished trailers. You can bid on those too and get all the electronics that would have been installed, furniture as well!
These trailers were used on movie and television show locations all over the country. Some of the trailers were living quarters, others provided the various necessary services. Need a 48-foot long wardrobe trailer with washer and dryer? Now's your chance.
As with all the trailers, you get everything inside - chairs, flat screen TVs, VCRs, air conditioning, heaters, generators.
The auction will be held next Tuesday at the Johnson Production Services site in Lindon. Prospective bidders can get a pre-auction look at the items this coming Friday and Monday. For the right price, a bit of Hollywood can be yours.
By the way, if you bid on the trailers, you'll have to pay as soon as you win the bid. And if you're interested in the warehouse and real estate, you'll need to put down $25,000 just to bid.
