Food truck set up

I have a friend who is considering setting up a step van for a mobile food truck. Has a chance to serve several larger work places. They intend to serve the standard sandwiches along with specials everyday. Would need the standard grill, fryer, etc.
Expects to spend 8-10,000 on used truck. Can do some of the rehab theirselves.
Intends to search for buys on good used equipment when possible. I realize this info far from complete and is subject to many variables. My questions are;
1. Is it feasible to rehab and equip this in the $15-20,000 range? Am I too high or too low?
2. They were told to be sure and get a diesel truck and diesel generator! How important is that?
Any comments or suggestions are welcome. They are pretty experienced in food service but new to mobile food service. I told them I would check with my friends on Roadfood. And please remember, I'm dumber than dirt on food service. Just a hot dog cart guy.  Thanks for all input.
