Wagon the last post on this thread was in June I’m sure he is out working every day. Maybe you’d like to start a thread of your own.

Thanks for the tip on Big Stuff. I wish they had a giant BBQ Sandwich to go with my giant hot dog.
“Just an update to my post:
I had my state of MN electrical inspection done last week and past with flying colors. He said we was impressed!! 🙂 🙂 🙂
I also had my state of MN Health Inspection done and also past with flying colors. 🙂 Felt soooooooooo good getting that out of the way let me tell you guys!!!
I had a practice run on some food over the weekend for my sons birthday party and it was hectic and I learned alot as to where I need to improve in terms of quality first and speed second. My first event of the season is in less than 2 weeks.”
Great to hear that I am so happy for you….you have worked your azzz off and your build is quite impressive, good luck to you.
Thanks for posting the information on J. Freeman. Like I said, they seem to be the cheapest as far as trailer skins go that I can find. We did get our trailer and have been gutting it out in our spare time. It’s a poster child for a basket case, but we’re determined to at least have the inside 100%. I might not be able to do the outside skin replacement this winter, but there’s always next year. Holding down a full time job don’t allow much time to work on it, but I figure, weather permitting, I should have the roof patched and rubber roof paste on it within 2 weeks. I have been taking pics as I go, and we’ve agreed to make a scrapbook of this project. So once I’m able to post pics on here, I’ll show what we started with. Thanks again for sharing and giving people like us hope for the future!! 🙂
Can you help with what you used for your exaust far and how it's working
It's a 10" radiator type plastic fan. Off the top of my head I don't recall the exact fan. It is a 12 volt fan and has done the job for the past 4 seasons with no issues.
I got my sink from prima it’s not a drop in tho, I like your better is it 10x14x10 bowls or bigger?
When you wrapped your trailer I noticed you have the same screws on the outside of your trailer as I do. I am having my trailer wrapped and they think I need to silicone the screw holes. Did you have to do this?
I wanted to give you guys an update on what my trailer currently looks like after the wrap was installed! Can't believe how great it turned out.�
Theres a glimse of our ice cream cart in lower left corner.
Our ice cream truck will be done tomorrow so I'll post pics of that as well once I get them.
Thanks for looking
Sorry for such a late reply! It's my understanding that wrap material will not stick to silicone at all. My installers avoided al the siliconed edges etc. I did not and wouldn't silicone the screws.
yes, i agree heat is going to be an issue. Thats why I am going with a insulated flip top freezer rather than a glass top dipping cabinet. I am going to cut holes on of the side of the trailer and install louvers where the condenser coil will line up inside so that it can pull outside air for cooling.
you may find it hard(no pun intended) to keep the ice cream hard with a fryer and grill etc, those will put off an extremly amount of heat in the summertime…
where did you get the stuff that goes over the wires for the lights on the ceiling
Your asking about the conduit I used. It’s called wiremold and I got it from Menards. I would imagine they sell it at Homedepot and Lowes as well. It’s in the electrical section. Wire mold can also be used for 120 volt wiring as well. Gives it a better look than running 1/2 round metallic conduit on the surface of walls and ceilings in my opinion. You can also get the light switch boxes that match the wiremold conduit as well.
Just giving an update. I installed my waste water tank and fresh water fill and drain. I did get and install the LED lights and I am pretty pleased with them. I will update later this evening if I can. Dr. the ice cream cones are made of plastic. I am missing the top on one as I lost it making a trip last year. I ordered hand dipped ones instead but two weeks after I ordered them they called and said they were out of stock. I gotta try again but i’m rushing around trying to get this build done so I can get it inspected. I got the cones from greatbigstuff.com
Don’t plan on serving curbside?
If you do any fairs or festivals most charge by the linear foot of frontage – it would be best with that respect to have your serving window at the narrowest back of the trailer.
That looks fantastic!
Thank you very much!
I am just starting to accumulate equipment etc. for my build but would be interested in how you framed and built your concession door. I have looked for aluminum extrusion to frame but have yet to hook up anywhere. I like your door…can you give a little detail.
