I mentioned previously that due to the limited storage space for bulky items in the motorhome we were going to design a trailer to pull behind it.

Well yesterday I picked it up.

Just a few features you will see on the photos below.

It is an enclosed 7 foot by 5 foot trailer.  1000 kg ATM with a tare of 320 kg giving a payload of 680 kg.  Has manual override brakes.

Has large doors either side and the rear opens up completely.  All doors are sealed with automotive style rubber sealing.

Has a full length shelf suspended from the roof.  There is a basket on top that is designed simply at this stage for throwing wood on when camping.

On each side running the full length is a work bench.  The front has a tool box as well as a jerry can holder and a gas bottle/Choofer holder.  (My Kingaroy Choofer will sit in it nicely.

Now for the fun of fitting it out.  Going to add two 85 litre fresh water tanks that can be connected to and pumped direct into the motorhome water tanks.  This will give us with the current motorhome tank a total of 315 litres of water.

Will also add some compartments and other odds and sods.  Going to be fun.

Now that I have it and am able to measure will be booking our trip to Tassie in February.

Derek....just remember the 2 water tanks will take 170kg off your 680 kg allowance

Yes it looks good

I removed the swing down jockey wheels like that from my camper trailer and caravan....both got caught on curbing ...

Dave, I doubt it will ever get anywhere near the ATM.

I am already eyeing off that jockey wheel and yep, I think it will have to go.

I will most likely get a removable jockey wheel with a larger blow up tyre.  It should fit in the front toolbox when travelling hopefully.

Now I need a 17 inch Hardings to put in it, just for those occasions a big one is needed.

Anybody got a spare one hanging around they don’t need anymore.  Cool

Or what about an 18" Billmans.
