Ok now I have more time I have all but one special order for S Bowl parties done.
Not sure what you mean by FRP but in a truck the weight factor isn’t as important as in a trailer; even so don’t use full ¼ inch plywood and then metal over that.
Just insulate your walls, I’d use foam again and cover with what ever hard surface you’ve chosen.
My first choice is stainless steel although on my rebuild of a box truck, I’m using aluminum, on the walls and ceiling.
On the generator thing I’m not knowledgeable to help you, I have one in my box truck, but I haven’t started the unit and not sure I want it in the truck. First they are noisy, (most are) if there inside and more importantly I need the floor space. So I’m moving mine to my smoker trailer and pulling it behind my truck.
A little off track but maybe not. Our city has never sanctioned a St Patrick’s Day party but they do hold a parade. Since the parade is down town and so are about 6 or 8 popular bars the streets are blocked off and over the years a giant annual inside and outside party (6000 people) has erupted.
So I CALLED THE CITY AND the parade chair, the zoning department, the health department and they all said we don’t care. LOL However the parade chair said the parade committee would like a donation so I’ll send them a check for $150.00.
Now here is why this may apply, when I called city light and power about using a power box downtown, they said they will hook up power at one of the midblock event boxes for $100.00 , and leave it hooked up for a week, with no charge for the electricity used. And I have been vending for a long time and never knew city water light and power would set up power like that. So you may want to check where ever you’re going to be parking the truck to find out all the options before you go the generator route. Now after discovering this about downtown hook ups I’m not sure around here I’d ever use a generator.
Hope this helps
PS On electricity put in way more outlet boxes and a much bigger service than you think you need, you'll never have too many.
