Converting Airstream For Vending

Anyone know who to talk to about converting an airstream (or selling one already converted) into a taco vending trailer or similar?

Any info would be appreciated.

Be very careful who you may choose to do that type of work.

The design must not defeat the monocoque type construction of an Airstream, nor alter the weight and balance that will cause structural failure or a tongue weight that woud cause handling problems when towing.

Simply cutting a "service window" in the side must, as an example, not allow any part of the shell to fail.

The suspension system, must also be adequate for the payload design.

There is a dealer on I-95 in SC that has had a couple of Airstreams already set up for vending on his lot the last time I was through. The dealer is

DonMar RV Sales of SC
265 Pudding Swamp Road
Lynchburg SC 29080

Greetings from the Florida Panhandle

Welcome to the Forums. We're glad to have you with us.

I think that such a conversion would depend on whether you are planning for a stationary unit, or one that is mobile. Each would require a different approach.

If you would like to see a number of stationary units in food service use, come over to Seaside, Florida, on the Gulf of Mexico about 300 miles west of Jacksonville.

Here are a few pictures of the the Seaside Airstreams.
