Dallas West Mobile Home and RV Park will be adding some vendor trailers along its Commerce Street frontage. Developer Monte Anderson, working on behalf of Cienda Partners, will be installing eight trailers, which will be kiosk-type store fronts attracting potential retail tenants such as food vendors, shoe repair services, small law offices, etc.

Applications for permits have been made and hopes are that the vendor trailers will be free to start operating in the spring of 2011.
