Thank you all for your feedback. I did a 9 day fair for 5 years to help my lodge and I always struggled with refrigeration, replenishing supplies and the weather. I only sold one item a BBQ Beef Brisket sandwich.
Concerning the trailer above, our intent was to pull it with a class c motor home, but that is not going to happen due to the weight of the trailer. Class C F450 only have a 5000lb towing capacity.
Now the plan has evolved to a 10x20 Knock Down Consession stand before commiting to a trailer. I will use a E350 Van pulling our Toy hauler with the BBQ cooker and Fryer in the cargo area (they will be rolled out into the knock down stand). A 15cf chest Freezer converted to a regrigerator in the Van should suffice for refrigeration and the van can be used to re-supply the stand. Regardig the propane , I will go with 2 60lb bottles to fule the fryer, BBQ cooker and a generator
I really like the asthetics of the trailer but have to be realistic, about what will and wont work
Thanks again everyone
hey fumius i have been doing festivals and outdoor events for a couple of years now and have seen similar setups to what you are mentioning. I think the setup and tear down will be a little more involved on your end, but it will work.
make sure you have something for flooring. A health inspector brought this up at an event i did in a lawn area once. I pulled the rubber mats i use for the back of my car and laid them on the ground. She said it had to be in the open space not necessarily under all my tables and equipment. This worked for me in a pinch, but from now on i will bring something specifically for that. It may be good to carry with you something you can use as a "floor" jic.
best of luck to you!
