I'm trying to find some photos of trailers used at competitions to shaw a friend of mine who wants to fabricate one. Looking for an all in one unit type thing with a cooker, sink and cooler on it.

Or links to plans too.

Well, it's certainly not as big or as fancy as the one SPicewine has. But I call it home during a comp.

It's not done yet. I really haven't done much of anything up in the cave, the fridge shelf is still under construction, and as you can see I've got a TON of trim work to do.

Here are some pictures that we used to use...

It is a 6 x 12 V-nose with 6" extra height and other add ons. It served us very well. We used it as a prep kitchen during the day and a bedroom at night.

I have a Generac 8500. All the power I would ever need plus some. Not as quiet as a Honda, but it serves it's purpose.

You can see ours on the Extreme BBQ Trailers website, 8.5x20 with a 6ft covered deck. James can design and build some awesome trailers, lightweight and easy to pull.

WOW! These are some nice rigs. We're looking for something less. just the basics with an open trailer that has the cooker, a sink and some storage.

Something along this line but a bit more.

Here's a few pics of Chris's trailer. We build all of our trailer per your specs, so what ever you need we can do.

BTW all of my future enclosed trailers will be built by Extreme BBQ trailers. We will only build the cookers to go on them.

That's absolutely the perfect competition trailer. What would a duplicate of this trailer run, with the addition of a concession window? You can private message me if you like...Thanks!

Not to gush, but I can't say enough good things about our trailer. If you have seen either Dan or myself, you would see that we are not the smallest guys. We have plenty of room for all of our gear, we're not tripping over each other and are still able to set up a couple of chairs to sit in the AC when we need to. James was very patient with us, and we got the design we wanted done. Once we get the graphics done, I will post more pics.

If you don't need an enclosed trailer, you could also go with something like this pit from Klose:

A friend is planning to build it and I'm trying to get him some ideas. This is more along the lines we are thinking.

I've seen some neat ones like this at comps but didn't have a camera to take pictures when I saw it.

Might have already done it, but Google images has quite a few

What does something like that cost

What does something like that cost

it was 7k in 2007, a custom build with an on demand hot water heater, sinks, 20 gallon grey water tank. It's a 60" horizontal smoker with a 20x20" vertical chamber. 8 shelves between the two chambers. There is a ball valve drain, and a grill insert for the firebox (which is 1/2" steel). The stainless steel sinks, propane fired hot water heater, expansion/pressure tank, plumbing, and the grey water tank accounted for about 2.5k of the total cost of the smoker. (That's a whole house hot water heater on there...about $600 by itself.) The bare smoker on the trailer was about 3.5k before I started adding stuff.

The pic is from the Klose web site ( http://bbqpits.com ), but that is actually my pit. You can find some pictures of the pit in use at http://teamzbq.com.

If I had it to do over, I would make 2 changes. They now build them with an option for an insulated firebox. I would get that for sure. Also, the barrel is 20". David Klose told me to go to the next size up. I figured it was a sales pitch, and my wife didn't want me to spend any more on it....but looking back he was right. (Didn't help that when it showed up, my wife said "I thought it would be bigger." A man never wants to hear a woman say that. :shocked:)

David Klose builds a very high quality pit, probably second only to Jamie Greer's Jambo pits. Dave does a lot more custom work...many many models at all different price points. After 5 years, the fit of the components and the pit performance is still outstanding, though we mainly use an FEC and Backwoods in comps now so we can sleep more. :becky:

(I really should sell it, but so far my wife wants to hang on to it.)

If you want a lower price point, maybe a trailer mounted Lang would do the trick, but I have been very happy with the Klose product and he will custom build with any options you want.

I see James Stephens with Extreme BBQ Trailers posted on the previous page... That is who I am looking at to build my new trailer. I've seen one of his trailers up close and personal and they seem like they are very well built and James is a great guy.

For all of you that are looking to buy a trailer.... I have posted on this before, but here it is one more time.... stay away from LARK UNITED trailers. They will NOT stand behind their warranty work.....

I TOTALLY, TOTALLY, TOTALLY agree with Smoke-n-my-i's. I truly wish I had seen his posts BEFORE I bought my trailer from Birdy Inc.

There hasn't been ANYTHING that I haven't had to tear apart and re-do because that company got it completely wrong, and I gave them extremely explicit plans to work from.

I even drove up to their plant to pickup the trailer and before I even left the lot I was finding all sorts of problems. Their solution was for me to bring it back on Monday (this was a Friday). Very funny knowing darn full well that I live 300+ miles away and had made no plans to stay the weekend. I was so PO'd by the end of that afternoon that I told the manager guy to his face that his company was a complete sham (not the exact words I used), that he was quite probably the most dishonest person I had ever met, and that I was going to do everything in my power to badmouth them to anyone/everyone. He couldn't have cared less. They gave me some extra parts and a an extra roof vent thinking that would placate me.

The only reason I took the trailer at all was because of the deposit that I paid and it was very obvious that they weren't going to give that back.

Live and learn I suppose
