The Oscar Mayer Wienermobile is in Huntsville.

The famous hot dog car is traveling around the U.S. promoting Oscar Mayer hot dogs. The vehicle is 60 hot dogs (27 feet) long and stands 24 hot dogs (11 feet) tall.

It has a removable “bun” roof and a flat screen TV inside. The drivers, known as hotdoggers, spend a year traveling across the country. They say all you need is a bachelor’s degree to apply for the job.

Hotdogger, Connor O’Neil, said, “Who wouldn’t want to drive the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile. It’s iconic. You know, it’s a 27 foot hot dog. It’s a lot of fun. Buns and buns of fun. It’s really something you can relish.”

The original Wienermobile was a 13 foot metal hot dog. The newer Wienermobile travels around 500 miles per week.
