With equipment?

Could that oven be converted to also run propane?

With equipment including a 5000 watt generator. Not sure about propane conversion. It's a Forno Bravo casa 90, 36" oven.

I know it may be sinful, but I'd love that thing routed to accept propane as well.

For me its partly geographic.  Much more soft wood in Alaska.

Plus, I don't trust myself to be able to work a woodfired oven well.

I thought it would look cool with the colors reflecting off the wall. It didn't really work though.

Oh it`s plenty nice alright.   :)
And Steve an his friend rebuilt that thing right too. I would snap it up in a second if I didn`t have so much tied up in this house flipping thing I`ve recently started.

You just don`t see something unique like this very often....it`s an automatic attention attraction.  8)

Hi Steve.  As weird luck would happen, I joined this forum today. I've been formulating a plan to start a mobile pizza business with the idea of retrofitting an Airstream.  Finding your for-sale post right away is just weird.  So to say I'm interested is an understatement.  The cost seems more than reasonable -- insanely so given the value of what's included.

I'm curious how the catering end of things with the stream-oven-kitchen worked out for you. No need to delve into anything personal if that's the main factor in selling, I'd just like to assess how this would work for me.  Mostly I'll need to find out what it would take to get the trailer certified to cater as a food truck here in MN.  Any insight into the life of a caterer with your awesome trailer would help me determine if I'm up for investing. 

If communicating offline makes sense (or is list protocol) for this type of correspondence, please feel free to email me (I configured my profile to allow emails, I think).

Thanks!

Hi Barry. truth is I never really did any catering, per se. With a few exceptions, I only operated as a once a week "hobby business" at a local farmers market. I haven't used it at all since last November. I grew to hate the business side of it, mostly because I suck at it, I guess. That and the fact that my partner abandoned me early on and I had to do it all myself didn't help either.

Steve:

Thanks for your frank reply.  I've been investigating the idea of buying your Airstream all day since I saw your post yesterday.  I'm more than seriously interested and pretty sure I can swing it financially.  I'd like to talk more with you about the logistics and a bit more about your experience to make sure I'm set for any adaptations I might need to make to adhere to local regulations.  But, I found another interior outfitted oven truck doing pizza here in MN and think it won't be a problem. 

So....  Let's talk?!  Very excited.  Oh, curious about the truck you use to haul her around with.  I found a post where you mention modifying it to handle the weight.  More details?  Or, better yet, interested in selling the truck to (seriously would be easier to fly out there and drive back than drive both ways...). 

Thanks for the love you put into your venture, sharing all your stories and then offering the dream to someone else.  I'm very interested in taking your work to another level and do it proud!  Hope to hear from you soon.

Beautiful trailer. Got to love an Airstream. How many pizzas would you make in a day at your Farmers Market or how many could you make an hour? Thanks.

Thanks. I was never all that busy there. Maybe 40 Neapolitan and 15 ny style slice pies. It was fun though.
