1 x off road, 1 x camper -build up-

Recently I started 2 off road trailer projects, First one is a H/D off road trailer for rough tracks trips with the tent using an extra cab SR5 Hilux tub.
Second is a H/D off road camper trailer using a single cab style XL body (ex Telstra) with a large roof top tent attached, complete with annex style room and internal ladder.
Both the trailers are using the same style 75x50mm ladder frame chassis, H/D Outback 7 leaf eye to eye rebound springs. The off road trailer has had the tub welded in place for additional strength and rigidity while the camper will be bolted on using the existing chassis mounts on a re-enforced ladder frame and tabs.
The pic’s below show the off road trailer in 95% finished condition, just have to complete the wiring on the12V battery power system that is charged via an Anderson plug on the back of the Patrol to run fridge and lights, buy a tonneau cover and she’s done:D.
The camper will be finished and registered on about the 4th of September with just the a little extra internal wiring and fitment of the LPG gas system to be completed, will post pic’s of it about then as just now it’s a pile of pieces waiting for build up.
The camper will ride about 40- 50mm lower than the off roader for stability with the extra weight, have eletric brakes, pressured water and between a 5-10 min setup, then your kicking back taking in the scenery with a drink and everything ready to go;):D plus additional exterior lights for night time setup.

Sheer Genius

Very tidy great work

PS Who's the hotty in PIC 2 :D:D

She be my better half Raquel:D, leaning on the alloy box that at I get reminded "till I pay her back she owns" lol
Put that photo in so you can see the height of the trailer, Unfortunately due to forgetting my camera on the day of the main build I dont have pic's of the build process on that one but will get them and post up for the Camper.

PS. Thanks for the kind words guys, the alloy plating I cut for the front really tidies up the overall look.

Looks good but how are you going to attach the bra on the front to stop stone damage to the trailer and tow vehicle.

Good question, had not really thought of putting one on it.
1 x easy to remove wing per side will be the design, will post pic's when made.
Thanks for the prompt.

17" wheels are from a wrecker with a written off Patrol, was looking for sunrasia's when I saw them - thought "YEP" they will do:D, need a tyre for the spare tho.

Love it!!!! Patrol from a wrecker. Thats the local niss dealer isn't it??

Looks good though Gordon. Could have bought a Johnno's Camper Trailer though!;):eek::D

Also love the fact you bought a TOYOTA one!:D:D GOLD...
