The $32,000 RTP grant provides a first of its kind outdoor ethics and safety education "on-site" where the activities happen, as the trailer is used as a contact point, display, and mini classroom. The trailer is also used at schools, dealer events, workshops, land manager sessions, outdoor expositions, parades, trailheads, and shows, to reach hard-to-contact users and all other concerned public.

The self-contained unit allows interior and exterior audio-visual presentations on summer and winter activities. The trailer is well maintained and identified with agency logos, making it a major eyecatcher. Its usefulness in educating the public resulted in additional units planned for Wyoming and Utah, as well as, Colorado State Parks and Idaho State Parks.
