Tips

  • Why to not buy used: due to the modifications that would have to be done to meet your needs as well as the codes department needs.
  • There is 5 different interior heights to choose from (7 foot, 7.6 feet, 8 feet, 8.6 feet, 9 foot)
  • The average weight per foot of finished concession = 320 lbs per foot (ex. 8.5 x 20 concession = 6,400 lbs
  • Do not buy any concession unless you have a cad drawing this is one of the most important as it shows you exactly where everything is located.
  • Why to buy from SLE Equipment: we have been in business for over 20 years and have specialized in concessions for over 7 years. We always use high quality products and insure a safe operation.
  • Walk through inspection upon pickup, we do a full walk through of your new concession trailer including a full demonstration on how your concession trailer functions as well as your appliances, generator, gas lines, and fire suppression system at NO additional cost.
  • Understanding the electrical system: first thing would be how are we going to power the unit will it be (generator or shore power) our standard electrical package is 100 amp panel with a 25 foot power cord that is 50 amps rated, this means you will only be able to provide 50 amps of power to your concession through this cord. There are many situations where a person will need more than 50 amps of power at one time and so we go over options for having additional panels as well as additional generators if needing to run more than 50 amps.
  • Generator sizing: we offer many styles of generators ranging from 7,500 watt – 50,000 watts, depending on the electrical load required we can help you with configuring the correct size for you application. NEVER allow anyone to sell you a standby generator as these will not work and the warranty will be voided if used other than for standby purposes.

  1. I have a new trailer already,can you customize my trailer for me?

  2. Do you guys do any type of graphics on the outside, ie logos, business name, menus etc?

  3. That’s really interesting that the average weight per foot of finished concession trailers is 320 lbs. I’ve heard that your concession trailer is subject to monthly and annual inspections to make sure that your trailer meets health expectations and codes. My friend cooks some really good food and has been considering getting a concession trailer to sell his food, and I’ll have to share this info with him!

  4. I didn’t know that concession trailers came with an air conditioning unit in them already. My wife is thinking about starting a food truck business so that we con make some extra money and so that our kids will have a place where they can work when they grow up. I think that it would be smart to buy a trailer that already has things like an air conditioning unit on it so that we won’t have to focus as much on getting equipment like that.
