I have attached a few pictures of the trailer for everyone to look at.

Also, we should have a few dry days next week & my team & I will start the oven build! I fear w/all of the rain my FB board is ruined as it has been sitting in a crate in the elements covered with a tarp. Not the ideal situation, but a 3K lb shipping crate makes it hard to find an industrial space that not only has a forklift to take off of a semi but also to have covered space a tad difficult. Will post more about the build after Monday next week.
that's a great looking trailer, where did you get it from?

I had a local trailer company make it from the Forno Bravo oven spec sheet to hold the weight.

Have you had any damage to the oven in any way from it being bounced around on the road? Also, did you do anything special to hold it in place so it doesn't move while going around a sharp corner?

"Have you had any damage to the oven in any way from it being bounced around on the road? Also, did you do anything special to hold it in place so it doesn't move while going around a sharp corner?"

No damage to the overall system so far. We have made a few 60 mile trips and thankfully FL is flat for the most part. The oven sits on the CaSil board which is secured in a frame. Once we assembled the oven & mortared the joints, we applied the blanket insulation to it. After the blanket was installed, we used 1/2 steel cable an crisscrossed it over the oven and secured it to eyebolts which bolted underneath the hearth frame inside of the trailer. We also bolted the stainless steel stack down thru the frame as well. We are starting to see so small stucco cracks more on the flat part of the stucco over the CaSil board than anywhere on the oven stucco itself. We do notice a few hairline cracks inside the oven when at temp but that is just normal or at least that is our premise.

We do drive slow around corners and anticipate braking always. We have had it on road & off road. Off road we have driven it thru a local botanical garden where their service vehicles drive as well as a few farms (gravelly uneven roads) with no issues.

Since Sept 2013 we have logged roughly 300 miles with no major issues (knock on fire wood).

If you haven't already done it, you should fit shocks to the trailer. Those cracks in the outer shell will be fixed up if you coat the thing with an acrylic render. Get one that has good elastic qualities. You may need to reapply some in places where new cracks develop. My little mobile oven is about 5 years old, has been over some rough roads, speed bumps at speed when I forgot I was towing an oven, and done tons of miles. I hire it out, but always pick up and deliver rather than let customers drag it around. That way any damage is my fault and that's easier to live with.Dome is fine, but the one piece floor is full of cracks, but still fires ok

I applied an acrylic/elastomeric stucco paint which seems to have kept cracks at a minimum. Shocks. Good thought. I'll have to see if the trailer has them or not. I think not or my trailer company would have mentioned it before the build.

Any little cracks that develop in the outer shell should be filled with you elastomeric render to keep out the weather. Keep an eye out for cracks that may appear where the outer shell meets your supporting slab. This is a common entry point for rain. I usually fix these on an annual basis, not really a problem and you can paint over it with standard acrylic house paint.
