Default Re: Profesionale 120 TE Trailer Build

I had the same questions in relation to where the oven sits and the axle as well. The trailer company used the FB oven plans & specs when they designed the trailer. They have assured me that there is more length & tongue in the front of the trailer from the axle than where the oven sits keeping in mind also that I have a short wingspan to put pizza into the oven. Also, with the increased weight from putting wood & supplies in the front (coolers, etc) that should make the trailer ride like a dream.

I am planning on installing a larger footpad on the front and buying some jack stands from Harbor Freight for the front.

As far as the insulation being wet, if I can dry it out, that would save me some $$$$, How long would it take to dry out?

Today is Day 1 of the oven build. Pics to follow this afternoon. I'm looking forward to ideas & comments from all of you pros out there!

Thanks,

Kenny

Don't forget that because you have a high centre of gravity, lifting the tongue wil shift the centre of mass further to the rear of the trailer. Did you give the trailer builder the total oven weight. Also make sure you fit shocks.

If you can at this point. At the connection point between the oven and trailer I would make it so that you can easily slide the oven forward and backward a few inches if you find the placement could be better. Find the magic spot then bolt it down. Easier to work that out now then after the oven is built and being stuck with the placement.

You will have those supplies when going to an event but you will return with most of it gone so keep that in mind.

Put the insulation out in the sun support it off the ground to allow air movement and turn it a couple of times a day, it will dry out - how long? That all depends on how wet it got and how hot and dry your days are. You also might want to try setting a board on top of a closed grill that has been fired up, the extra heat and air movement will speed the drying.

Or lay it out on a hot roof. Again with standoffs

I took over 20 pictures yesterday. Thankfully there were 3 of us to work on the project yesterday. The crate that my materials came in had been covered with a tarp for over a month and I did visually inspect the contents before unpacking. When I took a piece of the insulation board to the trailer dealer for measurements is when I noticed it was wet. The dealer further allowed this piece to become saturated w/rainwater by storing it inside the trailer box which was exactly watertight.

First thing on the agenda was to use a commercial grade epoxy sealer on all of the leaking joints. Once that dried we laid our insulation into the frame I had the trailer company make.

A couple shots of the interior and some shots of laying the insulation board.

After we had the base down it was time to lay out the design of the stones. I guess that I hadn't really thought about the thickness before, but these suckers were thick (2") and were not light. It was fine for 1 person to move them into place but we needed all three of us to lift the outer shell pieces onto the trailer.

Here are some shots of leveling the cooking stones on the trailer. The next step would be the most difficult & heavy!

We just followed the #'s spray painted on the pieces & put the puzzle together.

Last shots of getting the pieces together. We will need to ratchet strap the pieces so that we can get the capstone to sit perfectly. We are currently a smidge away from all pieces fitting as tightly as possible. Our thought is to use the ratchet straps to apply the needed pressure on all pieces to set the final piece in place.
