Vintage Airstream Food Truck or Concession Trailer

A real brand

  • We do love streetfood – but some chefs are just made for gourmet cooking and Michelin stars, and some brands are made for brands. 
  • If your product and business are very high-end, luxury and exclusive both you and your customers should happily pay extra for the brand.  

A SMART investment in your business

  • Maintained properly an Airstream concession trailer has a high resell price at the end of a five year lease. 
  • Buying a vintage Airstream for a food truck conversion can be a very staggered process that you fund as you go – we are happy to park it safe and dry in our storage and do the next stage of work whenever you are able to pay another installment and we have the time to work on it.

Downsides

  • Karpatia does not have the license to officially sell a brand new Airstream, so if you are buying new we can only offer a great deal on the conversion and kitchen equipment inside, not the base trailer.  
  • There is a very limited amount of high quality conversion specialists in the USA that we trust to do the work up to our standards, and they are often booked. Meaning: it is usually faster to ship your Airstream from the USA to our workshop in and back – and cheaper, too – but this means the whole build process might take at least as much as 180 days. 
  • Many Airstreams are for sale on Craigslist or other classifieds sites at any point in time – few are without problems, and listings are all over the place from Colorado to Florida. Finding the right vintage trailer to convert is a significant time investment on your or our side.

Can I convert an Airstream travel trailer into a concession trailer or food truck?

Yes, absolutely. That is how they all start out in life. Now if you are buying new you can have your Airstream dealer leave the travel bits out. And if you are buying used from us, Craigslist, Autoscout/Truckscout, Yandex, Marktplaats, etc… or a site like UsedVending there may be an Airstream food truck for sale that is pre-converted to what you want to do, e.g. an Airstream diner or an Airstream coffee trailer for sale mighe be all you’re looking for. 

Be sure the equipment is what you want it to be and wiring, floor, wall, water and everything is done right and it can save a bundle when refurbishing a vintage Airstream for your conversion.  

How much does it cost to convert an Airstream food truck?

Conversion of a vintage quality original name brand Airstream to a food truck will be in the ballpark from €80k ($90k) including the trailer and equipment. Should you already have a high quality trailer and equipment procured your total costs are still likely around that mark, but you won’t be paying us that much –  purely doing the conversion in terms of labor and materials will be priced transparently based on your end goal.
