All I can say is..... :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

Started after my simple (by comparison) boat trailer and finished before..... Although I can blame the unexpected arrival of "The Firetruck" as that has taken a lot of my time over the last 2 weeks.

Wel gedaan Peter, rugged en prakties en met 'n toepaslike "sticker" ook.

Lekker kamp.
Groete/Regards,

Piet

Wanneer begin jy bestellings neem?

Meer ernstig, ek besef hierdie tipe van werk, soos bumpers bou, wil jy nie twee keer doen nie.
Maar jy sal dit dalk wel wil oorweeg om die plan op skrif te sit en te verkoop?
Daar is mense wat bereid is om sleepwaens te bou vir geld, en mense soos ek het nie die gawe om dit self te doen soos jy nie.

Alex, dit sou eintlik nie te moeilik wees nie, aangesien amper alles reeds opgeteken is.

Jeez Peter, very impressive! How is it performing so far? I'm scared to show my wife in case she wants one..
The outdoors life for me, thanks.

Rhett, there are a few issues. I think it may be my UK heritage coming through, but I have two leaks. The one is on the main tank and the other is the tent.

So there is still some work to be done. Other than that, it's been working very well, and the wife is pretty happy.
