Anatomy of a vending trailer
 
Have had a lot of requests to see my mobile kitchen.
This will show you some of the basics you need for HD approval.

Started with this...

7X16 Doolittle car hauler with fold down ramp.
Had been vending roadside temporarily waiting for my STFU (special transitory food unit) plan review and permit to be completed.

HD required a total rebuild of the trailer.
Now it incorporates a 32 gallon fresh water tank, 40 gallon waste tank, 10 gallon water heater, 3 sinks with hand wash station and plenty of cabinets and countertop space!

Lesson learned.....don't set up a trailer to cater or vend BEFORE going to the HD. What you think will be sufficent won't even come close to their standards! :roll:

Getting final inspection Friday and i'll be able to cook anywhere in the state!

Wow.....did all of that "remodel" hurt a bit?
Looks like quite a set up now, though!!

Congrats!

Gonna be cookin soon in that thing, I bet, huh???
GOOD LUCK!!

Great advice - Man you did get off ez though. The regs here in Socal are incredibly stringent, and makes it hard for someone to use anything but a commercially manufactured unit. Best of luck!!!

great trailer must have cost a pretty penny

Northwoods Smoke 07-15-2009 12:07 PM

Looks great. Nice job!

Is that Jacobs poster I see. Fear on the Farm or something like that? I did see the Brethren sticker on the old fridge too.

Looks great and best of luck to you.

Smoke & Beers 07-15-2009 12:37 PM

Looks like a nice rig...
Just out of curiosity, what do you use to power it and is it enough?
Did you look into one of those hot water on demand units rather than hot water heater?
What are you serving and where will you be later today...I'm getting hungry!

sfisch 07-15-2009 12:43 PM

Where the heck am I supposed to sleep now!

Nicely done.

Roadside, i have power onsite, otherwise it all gets powered by a genny.

I'll be open next Tuesday barring final inspection and my menu is thus...

Snoring me outta my truck isin't good enough for you? :twisted:

Triple-L-BBQ 07-15-2009 12:59 PM

How much $$ do you think you have into your rig? If you don't mind saying. I am working with my HD now and I am thinking of having extreme bbq trailers build mine to save me the headaches.

Great looking Trailer Steve!

Westexbbq 07-15-2009 01:55 PM

Sweet set-up.
Nicely done.
Good going.
Enjoy.
(The customers are lining up already for Tuesday!)

Any restrictions or guidelines on proper roadside signage?

Maybe something that can't get run over?

Just asking.
