FEEDME, My walls are aluminum and FRP except for right behind the cook equipment and that wall is 1/16 sheet of bright 303 I think.

    That looks great


    Thanks. I just found a commissary today and I sign the lease tomorrow. Now I am officially on my way.
    I must be a dingbat I still have very little understanding what the commissary is for

          you must prepare food and clean utensils at a service base...  some exceptions for trucks with 3 or 4 bay sinks...
          take food deliveries and refrigerate or freeze product
          obtain clean water (hoses must be properly marked and stored in a sanitary manner)
          dispose of dirty water (hoses must be properly marked)
          -------------
          reality is many vendors have "ceremonial" commissaries they only see during a planned inspection...  So don't spend too much on a commercial kitchen before you need one...  That goes for carts AND trucks...  You should be able to get a qualified commissary for free in most states.

            Actually many places allow trucks to be fully self-sufficent wherein there is little to no need to visit a commissary.  As long as you have a legitimate place to get fresh water and to dump waste water (and, like you said have proper hoses and storage) then you will never need to visit a commissary.  As long as your state allows that (self sufficient).  Appropriate places to get water could be RV parks, marinas with dockage, a church, commercial kitchen, etc.  And I'd love to find a free one...but that sure as hell doesn't happen down here!

                Just joined this site, I am in the process of building a concession trailer, or should I say remodeling it. The previous owner gutted it. I know this is an old thread but it has my interest.

                    I decided to open a brick and motor location after paying an arm and leg to get the location up and running. I am selling my truck if anyone is interested. The truck is minus the equipment (griddle, char grill, sandwich prep and refrigerator) which I already took out and put in my restaurant.

                          Reese. I just wanted to write and thank you for all that you have shared here, as I have followed your posts for over the pasts 9 months.
                           
                          It provided some inspiration to finally get my project up and running.
                           
                          I'm sorry to hear that you are selling "your baby". That is a solid build and quality that is matched only in some of the finest food truck builders in the country!
                           
                          Much luck in your new BM establishment.

                                Hello everyone.
                                I think what you have done with your step van is genius!

                                I am new to the forum, and am interested in getting into the food truck business, and have been researching the lost cost options of getting into the business. I would love to rebuild an old delivery truck or fed ex truck that would be my dream. I wish there was a draft or a blueprint for this. One should be made!

                                What is one looking at in cost to rebuild a step van like Reese? Any help or leads would be great.
                                 
                                Thanks.
