I bought a Coffee Trailer from Chris on a New Zealand Auction site. The design is his. I have modded it to suit my layout.
Jack and Jill Mc Namara arrive towing their coffee trailer.
They are about to go through the setup steps.
Step 1 below: Remove the sign from inside and place on the roof.
Step 2 below: Tilt out the lights.
Step 3 below: Raise the canopy.
Step 4 below: Lower the service counter.
Step 5 below: Get out the power cord for the generator.
Jill serves the first coffee.
Jack drinking the coffee as a reward for his hard work.
Close up of the Coffee Machine.

Main mod was reducing it from 8 wide to 6 wide to match my other vehicles. This required major changes as I still wanted a low inside floor. Changed opening side as my LEGO town is left hand drive whereas NZ is right hand drive. Lowered overall roof height to match my other vehicles. Removal of gas bottle and lots of other minor changes to lights etc.

Thanks, The floor is below the grey stripe, just above the grey wheel axles.

The finshing touch in your setup story would be the minifig moving the generator to behind the unit where it would be more out of customers' earshot.

Also, which set does the Jill torso come in, I'm always looking for more female torsos to balance the mostly male minifig population?

Thanks, I didn't think I had seen that torso before.
This raises a dilemma though, the Car and Caravan was a most likely skip set, but the torso is way to expensive on BrickLink. I guess I will just have to wait for a TRU sale.
