      You also will certainly have something to bring to the friendships. A bunch of equipment that some people could really use. Just make sure you know what you are using first....and good prices for your friends who help you transition in...with a tour advice leads contacts etc.

        That's good advice CC. I did just that when I was planning my kitchen. Checked out some local trucks, and checked out a ton of mobile set ups in Portland. The vendors must have wondered why I was standing on my toes eyeballing their kitchens!
        It was helpful, for the kitchen and the build.
        I also left room for expansion, or reorganization if need be.

            The way things have been going the past couple of months, it`d be nice if the moderators would start a Food Truck Forum.

                  The Cooking Channel ( sister station of Food Network) has a show called Eat Street. They always show the inside of trucks...along with the food.

                  It is on Directv. Many cable providers don't carry it.

                    okay, here's kinda what i figured out. the step in cooler on ea truck will have to go. im wondering if i should keep one in my commissary and run it on a pool type timer to come on at set times and use it as a freezer for meat, fries, ice cream, ect. it looks like itll hold 30 cases or so of misc. any thoughts on this, guys? they also have a thermostat to runs as needed but once cold plate freezes, they hold temps great.  anyone ever remove one? how easy is it to take one apart?
                     
                    once cooler is out of the way ill be adding the interior skin and hanging the hood. shoulda done this over the winter as that truck is like a tin can in a field and theres nothin being cooked yet. gotta get a big fan goin'.
                    if anyone can use a step in for anything let me know. thanks. m
