the first thing to find out is the gvwr...
with all of those openings the shells isn't really gonna support much load.
and the frame/tongue looks like a single beam?
so very likely this vendor trailer was built to carry ONLY the vendor goods.
plumbing/water/tanks would seem way out of the question,
and i'd be leary of sinking much into the interior features.
this baby is gonna wiggle big time with a load inside...
just how well will those large openings seal up against rain?
no opening windows, so the sides are the only air/ventilation.
no screens over the openings.
solar panels don't weigh much but the batteries to store sun juice WILL be significant.
it looks like there are 2 battery boxes behind the axle on the street side.
i think this is a great show piece and would be wonderful for an art/crafts swap meet vendor..
or perhaps a cotton candy booth, or an info booth/kiosh station.
but real food service or coffee bar might be too much load inside...
please keep us up to date on this, maybe an email to the factory with pics, vin and so on can get you info.
and the script a/s logo on the front is typical of units from that era. they still have that lettering available at the factory store.
