It depends on what you are pulling from the RV. I can’t imagine that the water tanks, the propane system, and the electrical you may be able to salvage are worth that much money. Also, figure on doing double the work. Once to take everything out and then put it back on your truck.
I thought I was going to be able to salvage a bunch of the stuff I took out of my first food truck that I bought.
In the end, I MAYBE ended up saving $500 over buying new stuff.
Spend TONS of time cleaning the old stuff.
Wasted more time than I care to think about between dismantling the old truck and trying to make the the old stuff work in the new truck, then having to buy new stuff anyway.
At the same time, the amount of stuff I have learned throughout the process is amazing.
My suggestion, learn from everyone on this forum so you don’t make the same mistakes.
Also, either keep the rv for an rv, or sell it to fund the food truck.
I’m all for doin it yer own way, but I think this is a battle you will regret.
thanks for the reply.
im mainly looking to get the brand new tires i just spent 1k on, rooftop ac unit, the really nice honda generator, and the electrical converter/inverter.
i was also thinking the propane tank works great to provide fuel for the generator. its already converted to run on propane. i priced out a similar generator from honda, and its over 3k.
the replacement costs of just these items are more then what i could get for the rv as is, and my thought was not having to go through the hassle of trying to sell the rv, dealing with no shows, lowball offers, tire kickers etc..
i do realize this is a huge undertaking as far as removing and reinstalling into the new truck. however, i have a place to do it, have plenty of tools, and mechanical knowledge, and this would be invaluable in knowing my truck inside and out.
btw, im only doing frozen lemonade, limeade, and a couple other flavors, so i wont need a full kitchen, hood, etc..
