Skillet®

Our Fleet

The original Skillet Airstream was vintage 1962 but with a rickety set of axles so we set it upon a flatbed trailer. The iconic Airstream design was certainly alluring, but the selling point was the good fit with our meager budget. Our original Airstream is a part of our past. Our current fleet includes a 1971 Airstream Safari and a 2004 GMC Step Van “taco truck”.

Each food truck was built for us. They needed an exhaust fan on the roof with a hood and grill built in below. Water lines needed to be plumbed. We put a fresh-water and a grey-water tank on board. We added a water heater, hand sink and a three-compartment sink. For the cooking equipment, we installed the gas lines. The electricity was put in with it’s own circuit breaker panel box. A 7-kilowatt generator was later upgraded to a 14-kilowatt generator. All plug in appliances like coolers and fryers were added and secured by locking them down to the walls.

We normally stick to the Seattle / Bellevue area, however we have driven and worked all over WA. We have traveled as far South as Chinook, WA near Astoria, OR. We headed east to Spokane, WA. We have been to Southern/Central WA deep in wine country at Walla Walla. We have gone island hopping in the Orcas Islands. We have been as far west as you can get in La Push, WA in the Olympic National Park. We can even come to you! Book us for your next event!
