Isolation units

I was discussing the financial implications of the current difficult times with my neighbour the local farmer Keith. "The imposed "lock-down" is having significant impact over my business," I told him "no lessons no shows NO MONEY, while his flock of sheep appreciating in value by the minute and the hens are laying a genuine golden eggs to be sold at premium prices . That was when he came with the suggestion "You should offer your two horseboxes as much needed fully equipped isolation units. The new horsebox with the full expanding living area, with sky TV and all the mod cons, will generate a considerable rental income if offered on the private market. " He continued "even the older one ,with the somewhat less luxurious amenities, is attractive enough for to be taken by one of the insurance companies like BUPA or PPP (for second tear members). It will solve all the money problem for times like these " after a pause he added, "It is a brilliant idea even if I SAY IT MY SELF, it is such a good plan that my farm stock trailer can be used as well". At that point, I interrupted "WHO IS GOING TO USE A FARM TRAILER as an isolation unit?" I asked. "The N, H, S," was his instant reply.
