A Happier Camper | Ultra-light Travel and Utility Trailers would work. Or a Li'l Hauley from Small Travel Trailer: Camper: Smoakin Concepts Composites which is made in SC.

Some years ago I looked at a stripped Scamp shell because I thought of buying it for cargo use. I learned that the shell is not self supporting on the Scamp or Casita because it is too thin; without cabinets and such you'd need to add custom hoop-like supports or something to give the shell enough rigidity. Otherwise it would shake like a lump of Jell-O as you drive, and stress fracture.

The Happier Camper and Hauley shells are stronger and self-supporting.

I am new to this forum, but we have the same idea of using a scamp as a food trailer! We just got ours about a month ago and have already gutted out what we wanted and taken out appliances/stripped walls and taking our time. I have know people on this forum want to stay with original things, but the style and possibilities with this trailer....It's going to be awesome.

Actually if you spend enough time here, you'll find that's not true most of the time. We just want your trailer to be clean and safe to go down the road. But, you do need certain items inside the trailer to hold the roof up!

Lol I can understand that. I have been researching for a couple of months about scamps and there are not a whole lot of sites about them or anyone who has really renovated one for this concept. I did see a boler done though and that was very neat. I should have been better on my choice of words.
What I really meant was the interior such as the old ensolite. Most people say to keep it, seal it and paint it. We completely removed ours and removed the bathroom.

This forum does have alot of information though!

Well, most of us are campers, not food truck folks. So the need for the insulation and a bathroom (when the trailer has it), keeping them is important.

Is this the Boler Hot Dog wagon you read about? 74 boler hot dog trailer...finished w/pics

Donna,

This is the one that I seen before! So neat. Actually we have never ran a food truck before so this will all be new to us. An adventure! I thought about keeping it as a camper, I have always wanted to travel and see new places. So after this one is complete, I will be looking for another scamp or the likes and use it just for that! I just love the style of the older campers and rvs.

Just be aware the chassis under the shell doesn't have much load capacity or stiffness for a commerical trailer. I wouldn't pay much for a nice trailer since you will be dealing with gutting the inside and replacing everything from the floor down. These trailers can make a really cute retail venue but the light weight chassis and poor balance point for the weight you need to haul becomes a real project. Unless you haul with a commercial van to carry the heaviest weight. you are chasing an uphill battle.
Good luck with your adventure and don't forget us, we would all like to see what you come up with.
