Even lift gates can be a slow hassle.

4 important keypoints in using a catering trailer are 

1) get one  as low to the ground as possible

2) make sure it is high enough to comfortably stand in-- having to stoop and bend into 

the thing to get things in and out gets old really fast.

3) While narrow sounds convenient, get one that's wide enough to store what you need along

the sides, while still allowing walking-access down the middle. 

4) If its not too big of one, be sure it has a front jack-wheel so you can wheel it about when 

its detached from the vehicle. This feature has saved my butt more than a few times in a 

tough to maneuver situtation, such as not being able to turn around. You're not gonna manhandle 

an 8 x 24 ft, 2 axle box-trailer easily, but a 6 x 12 shouldnt be a problem.
