A challenge of sorts: Field Kitchen Answered

I want a military style field kitchen.  Not the giant 30,000 dollar trailers, the small but efficient kind towed by jeeps with 60 hp in the world wars. It has come to my attention that even these are quite expensive, not mention rare.

I want to basically make a clone, except perhaps make it light enough to push by hand (should be possible by replacing non-essential heavy materials with light ones) and make it propane powered. Hopefully on a budget of a few hundred dollars.

Any suggestions are welcome. A base/ pre-made trailer or cart to build it off of, material reccomendations, and most importantly how to implement the the cooking part. It needs tot be able to house 2 30 gallon pots and griddle top.

pic is more or less what I'm aiming for

Good grief - you've set the bar high there.

Maybe a propane barbecue disguised inside a shroud and mounted on bike wheels?

I don't know the specifics of how they work, but they were made by the armies in WWII and WWI. They really can't be that complex,. Not feeding an army.
