    I'd call a schwan location and see where they go.

    The problem with propane in the winter is that you can have freeze problems if there is no warming system on it. Not sure if the schwan trucks are set up with them or not.

    Yea but what will they know. I'm sure it has a warming system built in, if not oh well. I just want to meet someone that gets them for like $4000 and buy it off of them for a little more.

    I was looking into them fairly extensively last year they can be had from $2500-$6k or so all depending on mileage. eBay and Minnesota Craigslist (schwans corp headquarters are there) yielded the best results but timing was hit or miss. Search "LNL's shrek" I believe was the title of the thread of someone on here who bought one and outfitted it. I have it saved somewhere but on my phone right now.

    How to find a schwans truck

    If you are still looking for an old propane powered schwans truck Schwans corporate office is located in Marshall MN which is where I grew up. I believe it is Kruse motors that sells those trucks for schwans. Marshall is located in the SW corner of MN just east of Sioux Falls SD.
