I have finished the two a frame sections, and welded the front brace. I will fit the plate for the hitch later on.

...

I have run the pull through wires through the front brace, trailer lighting down one side and 12v power to charge the batteries, down the other. There is also allowance for the brake wiring as well.

I am now working on the front main chassis rails. Once again I am trying to minimise weight where I can, I have cut the sections to still give cross brace support and the two pieces don't have the holes in the same area.


...

I hope I can get this welded today and fitted to the chassis.

I have finished welding the rails together, and I now can put them together to the a frame. Once in place and checked for square and tacked ready to weld.


...

...

I am using gas less wire so I am trying this product, I think it makes it easier to clean up after welding, just a quick brush with a wire brush and  no grinding.

...

The front chassis is now together.

...

I just need the cross braces finished, which I have started.

...

And then the frame for the front storage compartment to be fitted.
Also the supports for the water tanks as well need to be fitted.

It certainly is but it will be all worth it when finished.

I am planing on fitting two water tanks under the camper, but I am allowing for a third if needed. This has led to my first mistake , some how in the planing in measured the tanks 15mm narrower so two tanks make 30mm.  I found my mistake once I tried to fit them in place.
Luckily I had only welded one of the cross braces so I removed it and moved it the 30mm forward.

...

The extra front tank might never be fitted, but better it get it right now, so if I want I can just bolt the extra tank up.
