Everything was looking good with the fit out so far so I pulled it all out and started I started the drilling, screwing and gluing process. Still going together okay. Just sorting out the supports for the foot of the bed base. Hopefully the weather holds out tomorrow and I can get more done. Need it all done before Monday.

I am so envious, I can only throw a tarp on the wooden tray with one over the top of a bit of a frame and go for it.:mad:

al's very fond of tarps - we generally carry a couple with us, which has come in useful at times...the most recent being our last camping trip with kenny koala!!


i would like to say here, that i'm very impressed with the care that al is taking with this camper project. you're doing well babe!

ha ha still have the big tent Paul. Hopefully this turns out to be a bit more versatile as in where we can go camping and still have a bit of creature comfort when it's needed.

Got some more done today, just about finished of securing what I can until after Monday when I get the steel work done to reinforce the bed bases. Also had my first drill malfunction today. While drilling the second last hole the drill bit snapped off.

It's always reassuring that after you have secured the supports the base still fits as it should.

Image

Main supports all secured

Image

The rest of the bed base fits in place

Image

This section will be hinged and lift to access the storage area

Almost time to sit back and admire the view

With some help from Kenny Koala the frames for the bed bases were done today. Just have to paint them now and secure the frames and bases and nearly done.

Now that I have had my op and hopefully the heart returns to normal I have tried to make the most of the finer weather of late and get the bed at least finished for JLW

Secured the frames to the base

the cooler weather has taken the leaves off the frangipanis

Where were these little beauties back when I was making a tourer out of the old Hilux's and Troppie
