It was great to tow apart from me stopping three times to check the welds as I am not a welder and had visions of leaving it behind :roll:

Its for sleeping in which is why I am calling it the Calavan :) the main area is bigger than a double bed and the boot space is the 'kitchen' space, it has a 240 volt power supply for the camp sites which plugs in via the fuel filler cap, it is a LONG way from complete yet but is usable and just survived a weekend in Ingoldmells for which the weather was shocking Lol, I was nice and warm in there though with the blow heater coming on and off all night 8)

Looks pretty awesome!

Nice work mate.

Question about the registration on the trailer, does it not get registered separately to the vehicle?
