G’day and welcome to another build.
Its going to have a small simplistic kitchen box on the passenger side and have my new James Baroud pop up tent mounted up top.. Its going to be open in the guts so I can roll on my ATV quad bike for weekends away, thinking a stainless keg welded to the draw bar for some sort of charcoal grill and maybe a box on the drawbar for my 12v fridge. Leaving the trailer empty somewhat, leaves it still a versatile trailer for all sorts.
Lets get cracking!
Starting off with my previously built trailer, and my new James Baroud pop-up bed. Its time to get the show on the road.
A quick trip out to the farm to check the bike fits before I go any further and she’s in by a mickey whisker. Bit dodgy using planks. Better sort that out when i get back. It would also be a bit liable of tipping if not attached to the truck. Better make some corner stays too.
I’m back at the shop, next was to make the tray accessible for the ATV. Using two fiberglass mesh grates I had lying around, (also used for my 4WD for bridging ladders or sand tracks) I welded on some type of hooks and some removable chains and its done.
Now before I get carried away with the kitchen, above that I saw an opportunity to maximize the space up top and extend the platform to accommodate my OZtent / 30 second tent. The end plan is, is to have an awning stretch out over the kitchen then my Oztent attach to that for a sort of room to use for either somewhere to hang out of the sun or rain, or a second bedroom for kids or guests. More on that later. So I thought i better make provisions for the Oztent now.
Getting the divider in seemed somewhat impossible, as its bigger than the opening and should of been inserted before the box went together. Lucky for the SKYHOOK 2000! (see the build here). !
Doors made, decided on a bi-fold design so the bottom half will be a bench top and the top half will have an LED strip light attached. Using packers here to get the gaps all even and parallel before installing the hinges.
With the drop down door fitted, here you can see i have made some custom internal ribs. This will give the door support and also fill in the inside as soon it will be laminated with a sheet of stainless.
To be continued…..
