Pop Up Trailer Reimagined As Stunning Handcrafted Mobile Tiki Bar

This post was updated on March 19th, 2024

Cristian Guzman runs a small business serving non-alcoholic piña colada drinks at a local market. In the past, he used a simple tent and table to serve his many customers. The tent took a long time to setup, and he found it inconvenient for his needs. Cristian wanted to buy a proper concession trailer, but said they’re quite expensive. So he got another idea.

One day I watched the video of Whiskey Tango BBQ, showing how he could transform a Pop Up Camper into a do-it-yourself concession trailer. It was at this point I decide to create something similar for my own business, with the help of God and my family.

Cristian started with this pop up trailer.

Which wasn’t in such good shape.

The biggest challenge was to trasport it to my house. It 7 hours and 30 minutes from the place I purchased it. The wheels were in poor condition. The wood inside war also in poor condition. Although I have no knowledge of carpentry, that was not an obstacle to my family and we made our dream come true.

With the help of some skilled labor…

Every saturday during the summer months we have the concession trailer setup fron 8:00am to 2:00pm at the Riverwalk Market in Augusta GA.

I’d say this mobile tiki hut is about 1,000 steps up from a simple tent and table stand. The green, orange, and yellow paint scheme fits perfectly with his drink selection.
