UG! Just spotted that on e-bay

Lessee $30K for a unit you can't tow, sleep in, or take a comfort stop in? Uh. No. My birth certificate says I was born at night... but not LAST night.

And what kind of tail droop will it get from that big heavy grill that comes out of the back door?

If I wanted to open a coffee kiosk in a local mall - maybe I'd pay $5k for it, otherwise - Oh Hell NO!

I'd be tempted to say what a waste of a perfectly good vintage unit, but lets face it, anything that keeps Airstreams in the public consciousness is good.

I think it's impossible to combine the two (food service and camper) and still keep any of the features of one with the other. But if you wanted to have an Airstream food service unit, there's one for sale in Seattle right now for 10k:

Mobile Food Trailer—complete and ready to go. Start making money immediately.

1960, 20 foot airstream trailer converted to mobile hot food service cart. Complete with: 2-100 gallon propane tanks, grill, griddle, deep fryer and custom fire suppression hood system. Includes refrigerator, freezer, 3-basin sink, counter room and lots of small item accessories. Wired to run off external 240 volt electricity or an included 240 volt generator.
I think this one has been for sale for a while or it's for sale again, because I thought I saw something similar listed not too long ago. Hmmmm... Travelling around to arts fairs cooking in an Airstream sounds like a lot more fun than what I currently do for a living!

As for the Food TV unit, it looks like it would make a pretty cool stationary party central, but I don't know how the folks who buy it will get it there - flatbed I guess. I could see that being setup at some hotel somewhere by the pool. Seems like the price is way too high to me though...
