I certainly understand what you are trying to do.

The first thing that I would recommend is to put aluminum foil above the ceramic fiber. This will help with the insulation, will ensure no water from the stucco gets in the insulation and will help with proper drying of the stucco as the insulation will not be sucking water out of it.

I think you are over thinking it for the mesh. When you apply the stucco about 1cm or 1/3" thick, the insulation will slightly compress under the weight of the stucco and your mesh is going to be about centered. That is for the scratch and brown stucco.
Then for the base stucco, you do work the mesh into it, so your mesh is about centered in the materials as well and that is your second layer of mesh and stucco.

Hope that makes sense.

Best regards,

Last night was National Night Out and we used the community trailer to do what it was designed for, support the community. The Mayor, Police and Fire Department of Sachse, TX loved the pizza  :chef:

Here are a few pics.

Thanks. I made 6 oz dough balls then cut the pizza in 4 pieces. Easier to eat for everyone that way.

Great event on Saturday at the Sachse Fall Fest!
We cooked the caramelized onions and the bacon right in the oven before putting them on the pizza  :drool:

So how much of that gear were you able to stow under the oven? Did you need a second vehicle?
The oven and trailer look great. Congrats!
How much are the trailers by themselves, and would you put your oven on someone elses trailer if they provided it?

thanks

Hi there,

All the tables, tent, tools, drops jacks and wood fit under the oven. The only thing I put in the truck I use to pull it was the coolers for the food.

I did another event last Friday and one guy who happened to be a Chef at the local Cordon Bleu school watched me braking everything down at the end. Then he came to me with big eyes and say "wow that it pretty self contained".
He kept looking inside the trailer like if I had just fit 15 clowns in an Mini Cooper :-D

For the prices, I sent you a PM.

If someone already has a trailer, able to properly support the weight of the oven, yes, I would mount it on for them.

Second generation of trailer is now operational  :)

The new trailers have a higher deck, with oven floor at 49", for a faster set-up. The crank-up jacks are now only used to level the trailer rather than raising it 10".

There is hot and cold water for a hand wash station and a 3 compartment sink. The opposite side of the sink is designed for the pizza prep area with a huge stainless counter top.

The space under the trailer is bigger than ever with 60 square feet of space and 27" of height. You can easily store wood, tables and even large cooler.

Thank you everyone for the kind comments.

how is the balance of the  tongue weight now?
ciao !
I hear you, I am 6' and cranking the 1500 Lateral trailer is becoming a bit much. On the new trailers it makes such a difference.

The tongue wait distribution is right around 60% and 40% on the back. Pretty much you can remove the crank-up jacks and the tongue will be tipping toward the ground without touching it.

Also I now use CalSil boards for under the oven, which I find to be more suitable for trailers.

Looks Great !!! Personally I really prefer that look and side mount too? also  the additional height on the oven and trailer make it  Really Nice Antione! What keeps it from sliding off the trailer ?
Nice work !
