Default Propane or electric for Concession?

So we have been doing weddings and other catering and have decided to do some festivals, fairs and street vending. We have a commercial kitchen and transport everything to the site done or finish/serve now.

Anyway, we are ordering our trailer and I keep waffling between running mostly propane appliances or electric.

Appliances will be:

72" under counter fridge
Standard stand up freezer/fridge
30 gallon fryer
24" griddle
4 burners
3 table top steam tables
Food lamp

So I am tempted to run as many propane appliances as possible to be mobile without the giant generator (currently have 2 Honda 3000's).

Any advice on propane, electric or anything equipment wise is much appreciated.

Thanks!

HBMTN has it nailed. The least you use generated power the quieter you are and much more efficient. Never trust a venue that says they have plenty of electricity.
