Default trailer plan update

North Florida trailers is working on drawings for floorplans. I decided on them because they have been the most forthright in working with me. I have contacted some others with little to no response. From what I have got back on a first draft basis, N. Fla wasn't the cheapest and not the most expensive. Talking with my sales guy, Daniel, he been very helpful.
I am waiting to hear back from some folks on what the lot lease scene is like. There are several "trailer parks" here but have limited space. I am looking at a 28'-32' trailer with a screened in porch. The porch will be 8' and will just have a 6' santa maria style grill for my weekly specials (one or two at a time). I have a 16" flatbed trailer I am getting ready to drop a new diamond plate floor on and plan on taking that to gator pits and have Ritch build an over length predator on it. I have a buddy with welding skills that will screen that in for me. That is what I would like, the lease price and the NNN of having the added trailer will be a deciding factor, if that is just pie in the sky or the numbers look good in the business plan. Enough room for a couple 10'x20' pop up tents with walls and some tables so folks can sit down and keep out of the elements would be an added bonus.
I have budgeted for new equipment, but will be looking at auctions for purchases. I am leary of buying used and being stuck with junk, but I am taking the advise of those that have the experience. I'll post more updates as things progress.

Don't know about TX, but in TN if you are mobile, you can not have seating for customers. Check with your local HD before you buy.

Many of the food trailers here have picnic tables. In fact a while back a non-profit org that teaches working skills to troubled teens had a project build picnic tables and selling to the food trailer community at a greatly discounted price.

Looking to set up in So. ATX likely, unless I can find something around Braker and Metric area. Not that many places to eat and no BBQ in that area. Plus there is the community college, a residential area with tons of apartment complexes, as well as the construction warehouses and medical complexes.
