In the 80s, we spent a nite at the denver KOA and were pleasantly surprised in the morning to find a $2 breakfast across the lot. There was a couple in a big motorhome, stainless kitchen in there, and they'd ask the campground's permission to serve breakfasts. Flip up the awning, set out a couple trash cans, hang the banner, grab paper plates and they're off. The guy was a retired army cook and could fly on a grill, so you'd get pancakes, eggs, bacon & coffee and they'd get gas money for aways. That's all they did for a living. Course nowdays it might be more like $5 but i thought it worked out real slick. :)

There are quite a few wandering eateries around, and with the economy & overhead like it is, i expect we'll soon see more. One fella last week had a clever setup - a kinda log trailer with a barbeque barrel at the back. They fixed chili dogs and roast pork (and drinks) for the moondance crowd and were located down the highway about 7 miles. And heck, they had customers all day - had to make something.
And i know a kettle corn guy and and a chitlins guy - they both plan to stay in business. Whatever they sell fresh and big bags to go. :)
