Mobile Catering Solutions – Trailers
A wide range
Our trailers come in a wide range of sizes; capacity’s and styles to help you get the right unit for your business. Whether you are looking for a standard burger or fish and chip unit, a street food unit or bar, we can help you create something truly unique.
Due to changes in the law any drivers who passed their driving test after 1st January 1997 will need to get a trailer licence to be able to tow their unit if the combined weight of vehicle and trailer is over 3,500kgs.
Please note; it is your responsibility to know the up to date law, rules and regulations of towing.
Towable vs Drivable
A towable unit offers businesses a lower start-up fee, providing you already have a car with the ability to tow the weight required.
It allows you to get another vehicle to tow it should you have problems with your towing vehicle helping you stop any unnecessary loss of earnings should your car break down.
If you plan to have your unit in a location that it will rarely move from but needs to be able to be moved with ease this is also the best solution for you and your business.
It may also take up less space than a drivable unit on your pitch.

Our New Dakota Range was developed to bring an American look to the UK which has been a massive influence in UK street food within the past year or two with smoked meats and BBQ pulled pork proving very popular with both traders and consumers.
Here you will see examples of our Dakota in Brushed Stainless steel which provides a great commercial kitchen for use on the move. The Dakota can also be available in 2b Stainless Steel and painted the colour of your choice to give a more retro look.
These units have proved highly popular and will set you apart from any other catering trailer available.
‘Our trailer was brilliantly designed and built by a great team – it blows the competition away. We love it.’ – Route 66, London
Food Station Range
Fashions have influenced changes in just about every product that is manufactured, even down to mobile catering units with vintage and retro which are two words that are often looked for by Event Organisers as it is very important that they have the right look at their event. The Food Station was designed to encompass this popular look and can also be adapted to suit any style and specification making a great option for Street food.
‘Wilkinson Catering helped us with planning, designing and building our first catering trailer. The advice was just what we needed as first-time mobile caterers! Mike was very patient with us. We would definitely recommend them to anyone who is thinking of going into mobile catering’. – Flame Baked Pizza Co, Bristol
The Visage Range was designed to give our trailers a high visual impact and allow business’s room to brand their trailer so that could be seen from a greater distance.
The visage is available in a 2 corner, which would include one header board at the front of the trailer or a 4 corner with 4 header boards which would provide 360 degree visuals which is ideal for busy town/city centre locations and busy festivals to draw in customers.
‘We would like to take this opportunity to thank all at Wilkinson’s so much for our fantastic new catering unit, we are very pleased and happy with the quality and speed in which the catering unit was completed.’ – Blue 4 Corner Visage, Warrington
