Thanks for the comments. We are hoping to get a few bits finished this weekend as well.
If we get a break in the weather next week we hope to go over to Tinaroo for the weekend, at Camp Barrabadeen.

On the weekend Bonnie started making curtains for the camper, although with the first curtain done I am concerned it is moving away from being a camper.
I also finished the door vent. It had a bit of dust in the filter, from out to in, so I think I am going to need a pressure vent to give a positive pressure in the camper.
I had planed to do this before I head of on a dusty trip anyhow.

I have been tidying up the inside of my folding walls.
There is a gap along the top of the side walls created by the nylon blocks which I fitted..
These are there for two reasons. When the roof is down the weight of the roof rides on them. Also the thickness of the blocks controls the amount of squash on the outside roof seals.
The fix for the inside trim was easy, once I thought about it. All I used was 40x20x3mm aluminium angle riveted to the top.
I am also removing the latch in the centre of the wall for three draw bolts. This has made it easier for the end walls to swing up into place. As with only one arm I found it was hard to hold the ends of the wall out as I did this part of setting up.

All the fine tuning takes time and a lot of thought John. Going well though.

I have found by getting out and using it helps, every time I go, I find another bit I would like to fix.
I also like to make look as good as I can given what my capabilities I have. Smiley

I don’t think you ever stop playing with them John.

Even with our Motorhome it’s the same.  Always doing something or changing something.

I am currently changing our plumbing.  New water pump arrived the other day. Smiley
