1978 VW Drink Bus Conversion "The Freshmobile"

For years I dreamed of selling out of a VW bus. In 2012 I found the perfect bus in Maryland, but it took me years to save enough to convert it into a drink truck. In the meanwhile it was my daily driver and camper. It finally happened in 2018! By this time I was established as a limeade stand at farmer's markets and didn't have the capacity to fully transition to a "food truck.".

The Freshmobile runs very good! A few weeks ago I drove it back to DC from Cleveland (400 miles) at 60mph on the freeway, except for hills of course. It's very tall now so windy days will get your adrenaline pumping.

I've been getting it serviced with Mr. Boone of Maryland, a VW veteran, since 2012.

The Freshmobile has been having some old man issues lately. I have to change the valve cover gaskets, but I'm not sure if that would stop the oil leak. It also has a hard time starting when it's cold. But other than that it works like a champ.

The conversion was done by US Food Truck Factory: roof was extended 2 feet with steel reinforcements. The camping gear was taken out and it has an interior frame and stainless steel walls and floors. It meets all vending regulations for DC (one of the most strict in the country). 3-sink warewashing, hand washing sink and drinking water supply sink with floor pump. hot water heater, water filter and water pump. 40 gal fresh water tank outside and 50 gal waste water below sinks. 200 lb ice tank w/2 in insulation. stainless steel prep and serving tables. 3 storage shelves and plenty of storage in the back. small fridge. generator and cage goes in the back hitch. sliding door sealed and serving window installed. It does not have any hot food prep equipment.

Rust in the floor panel was replaced and also on the side but the sliding door. new paint job in 2018. All new window seals.

***The Freshmobile would be perfect for another drink bus or coffee bus or mobile keg!***

Come check it out and take it for a ride!
