Our Pick: Top 10 Summer Catering Units August

1. Vintage Ice Cream 

This is such a cute little 1950's vintage trailer which has been used to sell ice cream. It has a working ice cream fridge and 2 sinks and looks like a proper period ice cream hut. It was on eBay with bids at £771, and a buy it now price of £3500 but got removed by the seller.

This vintage travel trailer, similar to an Airstream, is quite rare in the UK. Inside is a modern interior with fully working kitchen, large double bed and smaller double, toilet and shower and two large sofas. Plenty of space to maybe add a catering hatch to serve some delicious goodies. It's on eBay for £36000.

3. Morris LC3 Ice Cream Van

On eBay for a price of £24,000, this is Scarlett the 1947 Morris Van. She's a fully restored and fully functioning ice cream van complete with coffee machine, grinder and boiler.








More retro than vintage, this is a 1971 Bedford scoop ice cream van. On eBay for £5000, it's tax exempt but has no MOT. Ideal for someone looking for a project with a low budget.

This tired looking French van is apparently in everyday use in France. It's on eBay with bids currently at £2050. With its high roof it could make a great catering van with a side hatch and coffee machine.

Bertie the Bedford is a 1.5 petrol van used in the filming of 'The Royal' as a soup kitchen. Now for sale on eBay, he could do with a full restoration. With current bids of £1975, he would need quite a bit of TLC.

OK so it's another Citroen H van, but there are sooooooo many of these converted into catering units that are for sale it's hard not to come across them!
