    I couldnt figure out the gallery area, and i couldnt continue with the trailers and vans post so move this thread if need be.

    Apart from wiring and plumbing, boarding and putting a pipe on top for my brushes the skeleton of my trailer is complete, i am very happy with how its turned out.

    I'd be happy with that too mate. Its genius. I like the way you can detach your WC business from your car without having to own a seperate vehicle. Whenever I am driving my van I am always aware of how much diesel I am going through. Have you decided what you are going to clad it with yet?

    Yep that was the plan tolish ;) I couldnt do with having two vehicles. Reckon i'll do it in 3 or 4 mm ply now, fibreglass started looking expensive and if i damaged any panels i would have to either bodge it or completely redo it.

    Tuffers theres me thinking 'nice bloody wheelie' lmao

    Ordered a custom made tarp today for the trailer, i worked out by the time i had messed around with materials and time spent plus weight is a big factor, the tarp was a no brainer, its a bit more expensive but will look good.
    Been using the trailer for a week now as it is and am very happy with it, but this tarp cannot come quick enough so its water tight to protect the varistream and pump plus my pockets and scrim.
    Couple of grainy pics as it is before the tarp arrives, once it does turn up all i have to do is get a length of soil pipe and end caps for my poles

    Nice one...What size tank is that?
    Also just an idea to save keep humping the hose reel in and out could you not just mount it in a way that it can be pulled out on a retractable platform and even maybe swivel too?
