I've just gone through series of posts again. I saw the chassis when we were there nearly 2 years ago.
You've done a wonderful job on it mate. I wish i had 10% of your ability in that field.

You have done/are doing a fantastic job in building your camper John. I'm sure it is very rewarding for you. I have enjoyed following your build.  Smiley

Thanks Jeff, at least now we are starting to get some use from all our work.
At present sorting out some insurance for the camper, I am going with RACQ fo now, being home made is not as easy to get insurance as brought camper.

I am getting the camper ready for it's next trip, so there are a few bits I would like to get done.
The first job I have finished is the kitchen drawers. I did make temporary drawer runner frames to work out what I wanted, which I now have replaced with folded aluminium drawers, and drawer fronts.
I have also lined the bottom of the drawers with a light soft rubber sheeting, this I hope, is to stop any rubbing on the aluminium drawer base.

Even though the kitchen drawer runners have a 225kg rating, I thought I should support the kitchen when out.
I wanted a simple leg which can be fitted when needed, and to be adjustable.
I had a swing down leg which was damaged, so after removing the damaged swing down part I have made a two stage adjustable leg.
I should be able to knead bread or do anything I want now on the kitchen bench without any movement at all.

Well that won’t move for sure. 

I know what you mean by “doing bread”.  I shake the whole motorhome when I am kneading.

I really do need to start working on perfecting no knead bread.  Cool

This week I have been reworking a few things. The first job to do is my compressor setup, I have had the Thor Air Compressor here for some time now ready to fit.
After testing I have decided to leave the compressor I have, and run the new one along side it. Each compressor has it's own airline to the tank with a check valve each as well. Before the new compressor it took around 5 minutes to pump the 9ltr tank to 120psi. I never timed it to 150psi which I want it to be set at.
With the two compressors now running with the tank empty it only took only a fraction over two minutes to shut off at 150psi.
The other job done was easy, I wanted a easy garbage bag setup. I went into BFC and brought a Croc Bin. All I needed to do is work out where I wanted to mount it, just need to take it off before breaking camp though.
