In some states, the requirements for prepping in a trailer can be pretty steep, so people end up building or renting a commercial kitchen for prep. For example locally you need to have 5 sinks - wash, rinse, sanitize, hand wash, and a mop sink, and they have to have an air gap in the drain.

Generally the requirements for holding and selling food are easier marks to hit vs. doing a prep from raw in the trailer.

If you are competing, the RV/Trailer route may be more comfortable, but if your focus is on vending you will may be better off with a larger 5th wheel style trailer. A separate area with bunks and a bathroom is a nice luxury to have. (and no...that doesn't count as a sink for vending purposes)
