Airbnb has celebrated National Hot Dog Day in the US by listing a 27-foot ‘Wienermobile’ for bookings.

Yes, you read that correctly.

US-based hot dog manufacturer Oscar Mayer has celebrated National Hot Dog Day by listing its Wienermobile for overnight stays on Airbnb, with available booking dates added on 24 July.

Fans of the Wienermobile are also able to request to book it for a one-night stay in Chicago from 1 to 3 August.

“Hot dog lovers, we’re calling you home. For one night only, you can have the opportunity to eat hot dogs, dream of hot dogs, and yes, live in a hot dog, with an overnight stay in the iconic Oscar Mayer Wienermobile (no, you’re not having hunger-induced visions — this is real!),” write Airbnb hosts AlexanDog and Jake N’ Bacon.

Given the cozy space is only big enough for two, it’s best if guests can at least agree on most things, like the fact that a hot dog is a sandwich.

The Wienermobile first made its debut in 1936, but this marks the first time a member of the public will have the chance to stay overnight in the hot-dog-on-wheels. Each overnight is priced at US$136 a night (plus taxes and fees), inspired by the number of years Oscar Mayer has delivered hot dogs.

Hosted by the official drivers of the Wienermobile – Oscar Mayer Hotdoggers AlexanDog and Jake-N-Bacon – guests will relish in everything the vehicle has to offer.

Airbnb said in a press release that this includes a mini fridge stocked with Oscar Mayer hot dogs, all the Chicago-style hot dog essentials, an Oscar Mayer roller grill to take home, an outdoor space for comfortable hot dog eating and a custom Wienermobile art piece by local artist Laura Kiro.

“We’ve been driving a 27-foot-long hot dog around the country for the past couple of months,” AlexanDog and Jake N’ Bacon write. “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 favourite 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!”
