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

Derek I am not a fan of pump up tyres on jockey wheels, when I have used them they never seam to stay up. I have used on my new camper a larger solid wheel.

Can you reverse the mount so the blue handle is at the top, much easier to use if you can do this. Also turn the wheel side ways and drill a hole through the bottom of the main tube and through the inside tube and fit a pin through it. This way the wheel can not get damaged if dragged over any thing. I also have a shackle welded onto the A frame so the handle can be locked up as well.

The new trailer looks good though.

Nope.

Towed it home and parked it in the shed.

Then Christmas took over and now we are away again.  Will be home next week and will start playing with it.

Definitely taking it to Tassie.

Today I ordered a 140 litre water bladder to go in the trailer.  Will be placing it in a ply box pretty well centre over the axles.

This will give me a total of 260 litres of fresh water if needed.

When it arrives I will work out the best way to pump it to the motorhome tanks.

With your trailer loaded and unhitched, moving it around on that jockey setup is going to cause you a hernia  Cry
Our van is 1850kg. loaded and I have one of those jockey wheels with a lever and ratchet system to move the van around.
I have to rotate the van in its own length here at home which includes a small slope. This jockey wheel makes for very little effort and just stows in the front boot  Cool

Have been looking at them Michael.  Son-In-Law has one on his camping trailer and yes moving it is pretty easy.

You do need a fair bit of weight on them so that they get the grip needed I had a dual mako-mule for the boat but on the sloping driveway it was usless even with the tyre pressures dropped it would just slip  {gave it away}

Fully loaded I am only looking at around 850 kg for the trailer so don’t expect it will be that hard to move.

Fortunately we have a large yard at home and I can reverse  Cheesy

I got enthused today and did a little bit of work on the trailer to set it up to how we want it prior to heading off in a couple of weeks.

I built a ply box for the 140 litre water bladder. All glued and screwed. The box will sit a tad to the rear of the axle for weight distribution.

I am still to line it with carpet but sat it in the trailer to see how it was for size. It will be bolted through the floor of the trailer. The bladder I blew up with air just to see how it fitted in.

Made a lid for the box. While I dont expect any water to get in there I cut some holes just to ventilate it.

Put some stickers on the back to personalise it. Yes, they are a little crooked but Maggie tells me that gives it character.   Grin Grin

First load of water to test how it sits.  Note the ties on top to for a bit of stabilisation.

I have set it 100mm rear of the axle centre and with the bladder full no additional weight on the towball which I need to keep below 100 kg

That bladder of water is now draining.  Will run another one through it then pull it all out and line the box with carpet.

I am happy. 140 litres is a lot of showers

The box has been lined with an outdoors type carpet. It is sitting lose however the top is pinned with upholstery pins

It fills from the bottom and all I have to do is click on the hose, turn the tap on and open the stop cock

I have extended the breather on top in the event she over fills water runs outside to the ground. It simply unscrews and I screw on the stopper.

Since photos it is now bolted through the floor with six M10 Cup head bolts.

I am happy.

Starting to pack ready for the road. Stocked up on the good Heat Beads at Bunnings this morning.

The Kingaroy Choofer has it’s own timber crate rather than rolling around.  Smiley

Was always intended to be a lot of room in it.  One of the main reasons for having it is we hate clutter inside the van.  Just want it all clear so that there is no mess around inside.

I see people pulling up sometimes and they cannot get in their van before they have to unload it.  I just want to be able to turn the key off walk inside and it is all ready.

On my old caravan towball scales I am 80 kilos on the tow ball and am happy with that.

Derek how does it feel towing with the van, I think I read you said it is a front wheel drive.
I have only towed a box trailer behind our old nissan  pulsar. I found I had to be careful as it could loose traction if not on bitumen, just spin and go now where.

Very conscious of that John.  On bitumen don’t even know it is there.

The Fiat does have traction control which should help but will still need to be very cautious in wet areas.

I have bought a set of maxtrax type tracks and a shovel. The tray are rated at 10 tonne each. Grin

You will need to run a hose and tap ready to go, up to the roof rack. Smiley

Never did finish this off as to how I would fill the motorhome tank from the trailer.

I could have done it with a bucket but very time consuming.  Instead I opted for a small 12 volt inline pump.

I attached two small sections of hose to the pump with attachments for a hose on one end and my filler tap on the other.

Simply run a hose from the bladder, connect it all up, plug the pump into a cigarette lighter socket, turn the tap on at the bladder, allow it to fill with water to the pump and turn it on.

I do need to put a couple of hose clips on the pump to hold the hoses as one popped off.

Today Maggie wanted to do three loads of washing in the washing machine so I filled the motorhome tank back up from the bladder.  We do recycle the washing water to conserve it a little.

Very happy with it.
