Well with one thing and another this year I just have not been able to get this finished but with the sun out today I thought I would pull off the covers and try to at least to get the doors hung.

The Solar panels work great, charging the 110ah battery from just over 12.5V to 14.2V in about 5 hours and whilst the sun is out its not as strong as I hope it will be next season.

I still have quite a bit to finish off like the battery box and the hook up socket that can be seen currently just sat on top of the battery box, but by next spring the paintwork should be complete and we should be ready to roll.

Sneaky glimpse in the background and you can see the roof box that has been sprayed to match !!! Sad I know

Not sure if this will work or not ??

Thanks

Great looking trailer that - good job fella.

You can put the pics in the post by putting "[IMG ]" (without the space after "img") in front of the image URL, and "[/IMG]" after the image url, or just by clicking on that button above that shows a landscape with yellow background, and pasting the URL into the pop up box.

That is an impressive looking trailer indeed I would love to know how you've divided it all inside, do you have homes for everything to store in specific places etc?

Thanks guys

Will try and work out how to do this and get some better ones on once its finished. Doors now on so just the battery box and the remaining small amount of paintwork on the front to go to finish it off.

Hi hunterxf382,

Thanks, basically I built the trailer around our BL6, the two lower compartments take the canvas and pole bags, so that we can get at them easily when we arrive on site, save unpacking everything else. Then the upper level I made to take 4 x large plastic storage boxes as well as the footprint, carpet, extension etc.

When I have worked out how to post pictures I will take some with it loaded.
