Trailer vs Truck?

I was wondering if I could get opinions over the benefits of a truck vs. a trailer and vice versa. I live in Toronto so food trucks aren't allowed to drive around from place to place. Rather you always have to be on private property. Please include any difference in cost, maintenance or anything else you can think of. Also, I'm not sure if this is just me but I much prefer the look of the the truck vs. a trailer. Thanks

    I'd say your strategy for sales should dictate your choice. My city is currently working on rules to let trucks park on public byways. This would not be possible with a truck pulling a trailer, or at least much more difficult (roadside parking that is). If fixed position sales is your plan, go for cost. Trailers can have a ton of workspace, and are much cheaper, usually, than a step van. That said, I'm building a 16 ft International 652.
    One day, I'll have enough posts to show the build. If I'm not too busy working!

    I think it depends, what you are selling? I am also in the Toronto area, and I know someone who sells wood fired pizza out of a trailer, no way they could do that in a truck.
    If you have a semi fixed location, you could just leave the trailer there, and go back and forth to get supplies, etc. without closing down. (as long as you have employees)
