Hi Fergus,

I can't add much, except that in our town with a population of 80,000, there are three different people who make a business with the mobile ovens. They all seam to keep busy at the various street fairs and such.

Good luck with your business..

Fergus,,
Out of curiosity is pizza a common thing in Ireland, Ive never been there so I have no clue..??

Either way brick oven pizza is a real treat and Im sure you could make a living off it at various parties, street fairs and festivals..

Good Luck
Mark

Almost all successful mobile ovens use modular ovens: there are fewer pieces to vibrate apart.

Put some shocks on your trailer.

If your oven weighs more than about 300 kgs then you probably need a dual axle. If you plan on removing the oven and you don't have lifting equipment, tractor with hydralics, or forklift, then you'll want it less than 200 kgs on wheels.
