Looking for an interesting hot-dog-themed vacation or place to lay your head for a night? How about staying in an Oscar Mayer Wienermobile?

To mark National Hot Dog day, happening next Wednesday, the hot dog company is making one of its famous hot-dog-on-wheels vehicles available to rent.

According to the listing on Airbnb, guests that secure a reservation will be able to spend a night inside an authentic Wienermobile parked somewhere in the Chicago area. The price is $136 for a night.

The tight, but cozy, accommodations include a bed in sleeping area with lots of windows and sitting area with yellow-and-red recliners judging by photos included in the listing. There is an adjacent outdoor spaces for the bathroom and a hot dog picnic zone, of course.

And while the listing says that breakfast will be provided, there is no wifi, TV, or heat available. Also other than a hot dog roller grill, that you’ll be able to take home, there is no kitchen.

The Airbnb listing is hosted by “AlexanDog + Jake N’ Bacon,” who say, “We’ve been driving a 27-foot-long hot dog around the country for the past couple of months. While traveling the hot dog highways we’ve seen some franktastic places and met some bunderful people. So, we’ve decided to share the love by renovating America’s favorite hot dog on wheels and turning it into a Wienermobile you can stay in overnight for the first time ever. We can’t wait to meat you!“

The opportunity to stay in a hotdog-mobile comes after another successful food-themed vacation promotion. Taco Bell recently offered its own fast-food-resturant-inspired vacation by converting a 70-room California hotel into a limted-time destination. All bookings sold out in minutes.
