I saw a strange renovation yesterday

In downtown Albuquerque an old Airstream was setting up for a Battle of the Chefs.

A 1968 Land Yacht had been renovated to put multiple cooking stations into it. It was all polished too.

The unit had two big AC units and a special exhaust vent between them, and people were setting up tables with table cloths and the trappings throughout the downtown square.

They were optimistic since we were headed for our car with dark, dark clouds to the west. I think it eventually got really wet there but we were long gone.

I would bet this unit has been on television since it is so unique. The chefs were there but not churning out smoke and steam yet.

No beds, all kitchen. I guess it would be a 'modern chuckwagon'.

Seems many cities are encouraging and promoting food kitchen areas. Many folks are using repurposed Airstreams. I have some friends currently building one. The code requirements are many and very expensive to comply with. The ventilation and fire suppression systems have cost them over $5K so far and another $15K just for the oven, smokers and fridge systems. The end result hopefully will be some excellent BBQ and pizza. They already have the best BBQ in their restaurant (The Shed) on the coast.

Airstreams converted to street food trailers are actually quite common. I've seen close to a dozen over the past five years. They are a great marketing platform. My Argosy almost went to a winery in California to be an espresso shack.
