What's the main purpose of it? When would you need it to face a different way that would warrant the cost?
Indeed there is a cost to it.
I have had many request from different people as it makes the set-up easier. And I am one of the person who thinks it would be ideal.
When you show-up for an event there is always something in your way and people never realize the space you need to position the trailer just the way they want it / envisioned it. Rarely it is an open field just for you to maneuver your 10' long trailer with your big truck.
You can't move a 5,000 lbs tandem trailer by hand. If you are able to back it just right and then go park your truck, then hitching it back-up can be a nightmare.
John and others can put in their feedback on the matter.

With a rotating platform, you can pretty much pull or back in, turn it and get your oven to face right where you need it.

Ya I guess I just see people use trailer dollys and that seemed possibly cheaper/easier than a rotating platform. Plus unless your trailer was circle, by rotating the oven a bit it could make your angles into the oven much more difficult I'd assume.

I have not posted on this thread in a while as this year has been buy, busy, busy.

Here are a few pictures of some recent builds.
This one is what we call the Texas Pro. our 3rd generation of trailers.
The oven, 1500 Bricked Short 22 (48" deep by 38" wide), is set-up on higher platform with the floor at 48".
The prep area is entirely stainless steel, food grade, designed to be fitted with a Silver King counter top refrigeration. The hand wash station is conveniently located right next to the pizza assembly, where you most need it.
The 3 compartments sink is on the opposite side with a lot of space next to it to put your supply or dishes.
All hot and cold water with electric pump.
Trailer is 10' long with access to the storage by front and back double barn doors.

Pretty much you can show-up and set-up with to very minimum, no need to crank up the trailer if it is to level it.

That is a nice looking oven. Do you have any pics with the refrigeration unit installed?

Thank you Pizza Baker!
My client actually ended-up using a full refrigerated prep table as he found one used I think for a great price. But it is how we designed the trailer  ;)

It has been a very busy year so far and have been meaning to put a few more pictures of recent builds. Will be posting over the next few days.

I like the brick front. What is that oven in the background - just to the right in the picture?

It is a rotating oven. I have them on the website and will be offering the full line for restaurant and trailer in 2016.

Antoine, you will be putting the rotating floor ovens on trailers? That's cool!

Chaz,
Yes, interestingly enough I have had a lot of inquiries for it. Now days it is hard to find skilled help so business owners are asking for such equipment.

That's funny you say that. I spoke with the owner of a fast casual pizza franchise and he said the same thing. And that's the reason they use the rotating floors. He said he can train the entire staff in a few hours on the oven. They use Marra Forni.

Interesting!  Though I would imagine you would still need some rotation in order to get even blistering/charring across the crust... no?  Doesn't the same side just continue to get exposure as it passes across the side?

A friend used the Marra Forni at the expo in Vegas and said they're great with no rotating. He's getting one for his restaurant.

On the rotating ovens there is a double exhaust so some of the intense heat travels the back of the oven. The cooking results is very even.

Been a busy 2 weeks with a lot of new trailers. Single and tandem axle with option of a ramp for refrigeration system. A couple of new finishes; a metal enclosure and a new stucco shape.
