Many people looking to order a quality catering trailer have been asking us about the possibility of a hot water system for catering trailers.

Researching A Hot Water System For Catering Trailers

Over the second half of 2020, we set about researching available methods, suppliers and brands. This process involved quite a bit of head-scratching, measuring, drawing, designing and redesigning.

Finally, with a handful of quality products in the line up the testing phase was now the most important.
