Nebraska Sen. Mike Johanns is abandoning his doublewide trailer for a proper Senate office. [SIGN UP: Get bizarre news sent to you]

Johanns has been using the trailer as his office since being sworn in early this year. It's parked in the courtyard of the Russell Senate Office Building. Now, he's getting an office inside the building.

Senate office space is allocated based on seniority, and Johanns is a freshman senator -- he replaced fellow Republican Chuck Hagel, who didn't seek a third term.

Johanns will move into the new space Wednesday after nearly three months in the trailer. He said the trailer was cramped and it was easy to hear through the walls.
