So I’m working on my food truck and I’ve got the demo done, but now its time to build a wall in the front and take out the roll up door and build a wall in the back. I’m going to use 2×4’s to build the walls but just curious how anyone else attached them to the vehicle?
Come on, I know someone on here has built their walls. Give me a hint!! LOL!!
You might try wading through some of the other build threads. We don’t hear from other truck builders too often. It could be a while before someone stops in.
Try screwing/bolting angle clips to the floor & ceiling, then screw/bolt the studs to these. I suggest considering the using heavy gage metal metal studs or rolled C-channel (sqr tubing works too). These would go a long way to reduce the truck weight; and improving the fire resistance of the walls and lowing your insurance rating. ….. oh Run a gage angle (1 1/2 x 1 1/2 or 2×2) at the top and bottom of the studs for a screw strip to attach the interior & exterior sheeting along the edges. … A C-channel with the C up at the bottom & down at the and the studs set inside can do the same as the clips & screw strip. Use a fire proof rock or glass mineral batting for insulation.
There has been much discussion of wall construction with sketches and code references in the years past. Use the search function to find these; use ‘truck or trailer’ builds.
