Looking for a contractor who can convert a tractor trailer into a rolling retail store. Must be stand alone including lighting, heating / air conditioning, restroom. Something you could drive to a Nascar event for example and open up for retail sales of souveniers etc. Please post info or PM me thanks.

My truck was built by United Specialties, 269-483-2400. They're located in White Pigeon, MI. It's just a couple miles over the border from Indiana. They're real close to Renegade's shop on I90 in Indiana. I know they could build that truck for you. They are a medium size operation and I think all they're work is custom stuff. I stopped there last summer for a visit since I was driving by and wanted my baby to see where she was born. They had a very cool custom rig that they were finishing up for a client. It was a mobile eyeglass lab to go to poor areas and make glasses for kids on the spot. Here's a spot about it: http://www.onesight.org/na/new...s_unveil_eyevan/1265

When we were there the guy from OneSight was working with their people. I spoke to him for a bit and he said it was great working with the United Specialties guys. He said they were really into attacking any problems and coming up with solutions. I'd give them a call and chat with a salesman. See what they say.

It's mandatory to have a single unit? Reason I ask is there seem to be a lot of concession type trailers around. Why not convert the truck to whatever type of living quarters you want and get a trailer for the sales? That way if you ever want to sell you'd have much more saleable items.

Craftsman Industries in St Charles MO is probably the King of Trailer Conversions for marketing and retail applications. Perhaps hi end but they will work with you and can do about anything you can imagine...and I mean anything. An amazingly talented bunch.

They did the paint on my coach. You can see several exampeles of their work on their website, including my coach somewhere in there.
