New food truck build Thu, 03/21/13 12:59 AM (permalink)
I have a school bus, 38' that I wish to convert to a mobile cafe. I am in WA state, so I have been studying the regs and rules here. The bus currently has a plumbed restroom and dual overhead ac. I see that AC isn't allowed in a new build, but will it be allowed since it is existing on the current bus?
I intend to have a customer waiting area in the area of the bus that isn't occupied by the kitchen, I will likely have about 14' of space. The idea I like most is to put a double door in the middle of the curbside for egress.
I am looking at a tank, horizontal top mount 38g described on e-bay as "
MANCHESTER ASME VAPOR LP TANK 38 GAL unused Sidefill Horiz top mount propane" Does anyone have experience with such a tank? I believe that the huge surface area should provide adequate vapor pressure? I think 200k btu would be the most load I would be likely to require.
I see in the list for Labor and Industries approval that I need to have a set of plans "wet stamped" by an engineer or architect? Has anyone done that? Who did it, how much was it and would you recommend them?
I am sure more questions will arise, and I will post pics when I can, I have been lurking for quite some time so my 30 days should be up soon.
