Phase 1 construction is complete! Phase 2 will be outfitting the trailer with the rest of the mobile kitchen we want. What we have done now is what we need to get through the festival.
Carlos and his magic forklift showed up about 6 hours ahead of schedule so we went with it.
With just the smoker on the trailer, the weight was perfectly balanced from front to rear which is not a good thing. We offset the smoker to driver's side. A three compartment stainless steel sink is destined for the back of the smoker.
Just after we set it on the trailer. It is not bolted or welded in at this point.
After that we worked on wiring and getting it roadworthy. And then it was time for the test drive. We went for a few mile drive and got it up to 65mph. Trailer tracked great but the brakes on it are not working so we will have to investigate that. And yes, that is almost 400 lbs of sand ratchet strapped on the front to help give us some tongue weight.
We are all set for the festival! After the festival we will regroup and start figuring out Phase 2.
