Jislaaik Piet.

Almost finished my boat trailer and know how much work it is yet nothing compared to your project. What you have done here is just incredible.

Well done Peter, looking awesome! How's the jockey wheel? I think you need some final PC branding on it once it is all done :clap:
The outdoors life for me, thanks.

Thanks gentlemen!

Fanus, I doubt it, unless I can convince my wife to join me.
I wanted to take it this year only as a test, but by next year August that won't be necessary anymore.

Rhett, I suspect the jockey wheel itself may well be the most robust part of the trailer! Thanks again.
Mag ons ons kenniskry met lekkerkry aanhoukry.

Piet

Alles is duidelik ontwerp om baie laag te le.
Wat gaan bo-op kom?
Net een daktent?

Alex, daai groot dubbel-daktent van my pas presies bo-op.

Hy is 2.1 x 2.45m as hy oop is, en is verdeel in twee kamers.

Hier is die build thread van die tent: http://patrol4x4.co.za/viewtopic.php?f=56&t=2062
