SMALL FOOD TRAILERS

If a regular 20ft trailer sounds like a lot of trailer and even $40k sounds like a lot of money, then these small trailers might just be the perfect fit for you! Whatever design you have in mind, allow us to custom build it for you.

WHY YOU SHOULD CONSIDER A SMALL CONCESSION TRAILER FOR YOUR FOOD TRUCK BUSINESS

Comparing the cost of setting up in a small food truck trailer vs. starting out in a tent or with a stall is a very minor risk to take for all the extra comfort and options it gives you over a stall, and it gets you started on the road to food trailer life that much sooner.

You can customize a ton of options on these trailers as they are available in any RAL color or as a fully stainless steel version. They can be custom wrapped as well, with any color or print design you can think of. Cute, convenient, and budget friendly, Karpatia has some of the best small concession trailer options out there for you.

BASIC ROUNDTOP SMALL FOOD TRAILERS

Starting at 7’3” (2.2m) model and stretching up to a still modest 9’2” (2.8m). A Roundtop is the perfect fit for your budget and a greatly versatile option for any kind of product from french fries to coffee, ice cream or Mexican food. You could even use the Roundtop as a small vending trailer selling non-food items.

Most models that resemble this shape are made in China – we no longer do that with regard to quality issues customers were experiencing, and set up our own low-cost production in Mexico. We then ship the parts to the USA for assembly to assure the necessary quality standards for running a food trailer business are met, and make sure all parts, wiring, gas, and plumbing are up to code for your state and county.

ROUNDTOP PRO - REINFORCED
SMALL FOOD TRAILER

A regular Roundtop is a great low cost choice, no doubt about it. But if you can spare the extra, we can give you a tonne of value with our Roundtop Pro model.

Pro has a stainless steel reinforced frame that proofs your food trailer for the rigors of the road. Your trailer will last longer and have a higher resale value.

Not just that, if you ask us, the stainless steel frame has a great aesthetic to it, showing that although the trailer may be small you are certainly not skimping on quality.

BOX TRAILERS - SMALL
CONCESSION TRAILERS

America was fed by the square box concession trailer and they remain a mainstay of the concession and vending world. As we custom build concession trailers to order we can make them small, too!

Our smallest box concession trailer starts at 9′ and we cap off what we consider to be small trailers at 12ft – anything more is just a concession trailer.

We make custom concession trailers in all colors, any size and custom specifications, up to 50 feet long and with an optional porch for BBQ too.

    WHAT IS AN ALKO AXEL AND WHY SHOULD I CARE?

    Braked trailers allow for heavier loads and on the technical-legal side of things you need one in the EU from 750kg and up and in the US the minimum weight requirement for brakes changes from state to state, if there is one at all.

    Arkansas sets the low bar here with a 1500lbs minimum weight to require a trailer having an independent brake system. To allow us to sell US-wide without worry and to give our customers piece of mind when crossing state borders we include a braked system for any trailer over 1500lbs even though you would hardly ever need it in e.g. Texas with the 4500lb threshold to get a braked trailer.

    Towing will be less stressful for you and the engine of whatever you are pulling your unit with if the trailer has an independent brake system. Extra braking is especially useful in hilly or mountainous areas and when going through a bend in the road as you will slow down faster and be able to park more easily.
