Working With A Food Trailer Builder To Create A Custom Trailer

If you are considering starting a food trailer service to sell hoot foods and beverages at events and around town, getting a trailer for your needs is an excellent place to start. Sometimes finding the right trailer is difficult, but there are trailer builders or manufacturers that you can work with to lay out the trailer just for you.

Picking a Trailer Size

One of the most critical things you need to consider is the size of the trailer you are buying. If the trailer is too small, you will not be able to work comfortably in it, but if the trailer is too large, it can be hard to tow and parking may be limited for it. Getting a perfect balance can sometimes be hard, but if you determine what you need in the trailer, that can help you determine just how large it needs to be. 

If you are going with a larger trailer, you will need to make sure that you have a vehicle large enough to tow it. The trailer is going to be heavier and harder to tow when all the equipment inside and it is loaded with supplies. 

Laying Out The Inside

Once you have a trailer picked out, working with the builder to design the interior and select the layout is essential. You can have some fun with this part of the design, but remember that it needs to flow well. If you have people in the trailer working with you, the last thing you want is to be tripping over each other. 

Putting the grill on one end and food prep on the other might be one way to separate the work stations and allow people to work without bumping into each other. Because it is a small space, a good layout will help, but there is never going to be a perfect design. The idea is to get the layout to work best for your situation so you can function in the trailer comfortably.

Adding Equipment

When it comes time to add equipment into your food trailer, there are going to be some things that you have to have and some that you don't. For instance, a sink is a required item just about everywhere you go. Talk with the builder about items needed in your area and what they suggest you put in beyond that. 

When you are ready to select things like a grill, fryers, refrigerators, and other items, the builder may have some suggestions based on the products they have used before. You may want something specific in your trailer, but take the time to check the builder's suggestions because they know what will fit in the space you have to work with.
