Food Truck Diagrams for Inspection

Does anyone have any of their plans/diagrams that were submitted for approval? My truck is done except for the graphics and I am trying to submit my application, diagrams etc. and would like to review some other submissions for comparison. I am using Google Sketchup, what software have you used?
 
Here is the first view that I sketched up so far.

    That looks good. I would also include a separate drawings of your plumbing and electrical. This is similar to what my builder submitted.

    I am working on that now. I figured I would do the driver side wall then serving side wall then an aerial view. I just wanted to make sure I was doing what everyone else was and making sure my diagram would be suitable to pass. Thanks.

    That is impressive. Very impressive. It's not required here but I would like to do it for my own piece of mind. How hard is the software to learn (for an old guy) ? I want to do something similar and be able to consider several options. So that it would be easy to move equipment around etc. Before I start. That's held me up forever the indecision of  what I want and where I want it. It has been making me crazy. More crazy???? The equipment is in the garage and I can't make up my mind where to put it.

    Thanks. Sketchup is easy to use and there are tons of video tutorials on youtube. Just google Sketchup 8, download and install. You can create each piece of equipment as a component versus a bunch of separate lines, that way you can move everything around. This is a 2D diagram but Sketchup is more for 3D, so everything you draw can be manipulated and molded into a 3D object.
     
    I imported a picture of my truck, enlarged it to the scale dimensions and traced it to make an accurate diagram of my truck. The above diagram is to scale. If you are serious about creating the diagram, I can help get you started.
     
    As for your left over equipment, put it on Ebay or Craigs list or build another truck and sell it. I already know that I will be building a bigger truck after I get up and operating for awhile.
    I went to a Food Truck seminar this weekend and it was hosted by Food Truck South who manufactures food trucks here in Atlanta. They had some nice trucks but I am never going to pay 45-75K for a new truck, I would build my own again in a heartbeat. I can buy a lake front cabin here in GA for less than that.

    Anyone looking for a van, there's one at a consignment lot that I drive by every day, $3500 obo. It looks like a 16' body.

    Whats up Reese, I just recently got my plans approved by the HD here in San Diego, CA. I had to included a driver side, passenger side, back side, Arial view, potable water: in and out, waste water: in and out, electrical, propane, equipment specifications, and logo diagrams...it was a pain in the butt, turned out to be close to 10 pages, lol. I cant seem to attach pictures to my posts yet (or I haven't figured it out) but if you still need pic's as a reference...IM me your e mail and i can send them that way.....Best of luck!
