Rotisserie on food truck

I'm in the planning phase for a new food truck. I was reading another thread here and someone mentioned it may be difficult to install a rotisserie on a truck. I'm talking a big, but narrow depth-wise model like the P6/1100 by Rotisol. Can anyone tell me why they think this would be a challenge?

    There is one in San Francisco. Google it for some ideas.

    Most of the chicken type rotisseries are 3 phase, which requires special electric hook ups and to the best of my knowledge can not be run off a generator.
     
    That said some can be changed to standard 220 volts with out a great deal of expense. But get your favorite electrician to look at the unit before you buy it to be sure it can be modified. Or if your buying new you may order a standard 220 volt unit.

    Outside of powering or fueling the thing, I don't see a major problem with putting a rotisserie inside the truck.  No matter how you cook, a lot goes into the truck to make it work.  You'll probably need a hood or at least some fans to pull out the heat...
     
    I did see a beautiful pair of gas rotisseries go at auction for $50!  Keep your eyes open.

    I would worry about heat build up in the truck, I would think a wall of ovens blasting away all day would drive you out pretty quick. People like to see the Chickens turning on the spit, with them located on the inside they would have a less visual effect.

    Would it be chicken only?

    What would the menu look like as far as mobile portions/options?
