The Hummer is NSF. All you need is a lay out drawing and the health Department should come right to you for the inspection. Here in Florida they do a spot check every month to see if you are handling food correctly. You may not even notice them but be aware they do check! The county here also comes around and looks at who is where and if where you are in an area zoned for what you do. Big fine if you are set up where the zoning doesn’t allow it! Even with permission of the property owner! I’m not happy with the Florida government because they are to nit picky! You would think they would be happy to get there 7% tax! Be aware you will more then likely need to use a commissary. I was lucky because Joel is a certified kitchen and for $180.00 a year we use his commissary and he got the cart inspected by Florida and helped with all the requirements for here. You would be better off in the long run if you went through someone local to you that could sell you a cart and help with the law. Joel even delivers your dogs and supplies to your business here, nice set up.

i will probebly end up witht the hummer.
also been looking at the dogger2 from american hot dog cart .
the next issue is getting inspected, and the health dept is being a bit sticky. they want cart to be nsf certified here in oregon. have my work cut out.
i want to be sure to pruchase a cart that will pass the inspectors.
hey jo jo...
as suggested, i went to craigs list after reading your suggestion,,,,and guess what........i just bought a cart!!!!!
a creative mobile systems cart model 325 for 3 grand fully loaded in great condition.
this was the first cart i was looking at about a month ago, and the problem at that time was the base price of $5350 and then $1000 shipping, which was way too much for me. but this cart i just got, at that price is well woth it.
2 propane tanks, s/s steam table cover and a custom waterproof cover.
so the first major step is out of the way. it has been previously registered in my county, so that will make things easier....yahoooooo
