Dulles 'Mobile Lounges'

I love the mobile lounges at Dulles. I mean, they look like something out of Star Wars. They're HUGE! Can you imagine owning one of these?

 

They were originally intended to dock with aircraft, and did that for a few years. Planes would park out on the ramp, these would dock with the plane, then take passengers to the main terminal. But liability concerns and jetways quickly delegated the mobile lounges to inter-terminal use only. They will soon be replaced by an underground train. So, maybe my dream of finding one on ebay isn't too far-fetched!
