Airstream Caravan 32' - Mobile Cafe / Food Trailer
This rare 1968 Airstream has been converted to a professional food trailer / café and is currently in operation as a café on Cockatoo Island in Sydney Harbour.
Please note that we are selling the Airstream van and contents only, not the operating business.
These 1960s Airstreams are so iconic that when converted to a café they do the selling for you and always draw a crowd. They are a ready-made business. This beautiful Airstream van has been operating on Cockatoo Island for the last 5 years and is a real draw-card. People love the van, they always ask about it, they are fascinated by the history of it and there must be literally thousands of photos of it now on people’s cameral rolls!
This is quite a large Airstream so you get a lot for your money. It also offers more flexibility in what you can sell compared to the smaller Airstream models, which are mostly just good for coffee and cakes. We have served a variety of menus from this Airstream (e.g. dumplings, wraps, pizzas, pies, gozleme, and so on, all with or without coffee and/or alcohol service). It is very adaptable.
The conversion to café/trailer retains many of the original features which the customer can see from the serving window. Much of the original cabinetry has been retained as storage and the original switch panel and oven (not functioning) are still in place.
Sympathetic modifications have been made to bring it up to spec to operate as a modern mobile food trailer. These include:
- Installation of a commercial grade floor that passes food safety requirements.
- One end of the Airstream has been opened up with a stainless steel sink and room for a refrigerator and freezer.
- The other end of the trailer is the original bathroom with a hand basin which meets food service requirements.
This Airstream has been inspected and passed NSW Food Authority inspections for the last 5 years. Last inspection was completed 2 months ago and is available for viewing. Note that it passes as a food preparation area as well and not just a place where you can serve pre-packaged products.
The trailer has been wired to Australian Standards.
Although 32’ long it is very easy to trailer as it tows so well and is so light (made of aluminium).
We are putting on new tyres and replacing the wheel bearing so that it is safe to move anywhere. It is not currently NSW registered but it can be. However, we have always moved it under “Unregistered Vehicle Permit” which lasts for 28 days and will allow it to be towed anywhere in the country.
We will deliver it within 100Kms of the Sydney CBD for free. If you require it to be moved elsewhere please contact us for a price for the transport.
Other items included with the sale and to get you ready to start trading are a dishwasher, two door drinks fridge, domestic fridge, chest freezer, safe, awning, side opening hatch. Just add a coffee machine, some stock and you are away!
Available for viewing on Cockatoo Island, Sydney Harbour.
