it wouldn't be a rover project if it were any other way ...

still admire your skills and looking forward to the finished project !

I'd say the job was 5x better than me rattle canning it. And I really like the color, may have to build up a 110 in the future in the same color.

Everything else is ready to install once I get the tires and wheels out of it (d90 stuff) early next week, can't haul 5 wheels and tires in the 90.

A little more work today..

Front Box is now complete except for the extra ground cable i forgot to put in..
Battery tray and all wiring runs are done for the base electrics (Fridge, Rear switch box, Box fuse box).

Ended up being more work than i thought to get it mounted and everything else done, 4 u-bolts and relocation of the trailer jack to the drivers side, mostly b/c having it on the passenger side sucked. painted all the holes.



I cleaned up the wiring runs since this picture and installed all the covers

Also installed some swanky LED tail lights that amazingly lined up with the existing tail light mount holes so i did not need to fab something up.

So plan for tomorrow is to finish the fridge through tub wiring, and get the switch box mounted in the rear, and buy a G31 battery for it and fire it up.
And then hopefully wire in the interior lights, the exterior Flood lights and we will see... I'm thinking about building a bed platform for one inside, since its pretty much just going to be me camping in in.. I'm totally undecided about a RTT for it.. for now the girls can use the OzTent

Rear switch system installed and fully working, interior lights for the bed done as well, and the fridge plug is plumbed.. Pretty much ready to roll..

My tongue box electrics work right out of the gate as well! Battery charging on shore power and all other systems functional.
Wahoo !!!

Thanks Brian..
Here are the interior lights, they are actually rock lights that came as a pack of 6, 2 is plenty for the inside of the trailer at night.
so that leaves me 4 more for the gull wings and whatever.

next up are installing those, installing the 4 LED flood lights for the perimeter, the rear scene light and then i think i'm out of parts..

I'm trying to decide where to mount the flood lights (4) current thinking is use an L bracket and mount them off of the rack front and rear (brackets will run in line with the trailer, and lights will be turned to the sides if that makes sense)

I don't want to put big holes in the rack if possible.. its definitely not as strong as just drilling them and installing them but it does tuck them behind the width of the trailer. For 90% i think it will be fine for long stretches of washboard dirt, not so much..

Plans for the rack include a couple of awnings (foxwing/arb dunno yet) and maybe a roof top tent for the girls.. For now the Oz is fine and frankly easier all around.

Great trailer, please keep posting pics. I'm working on a Sankey wide track and it really helps to see what others are doing.

Rob,

Just saw this at lunch today! Damn son you have some mad skills! I am a little jealous! As I have had that 6 way blue sea panel to install in my trailer lying about, well since Last Oct's trip! Can't wait to see it in person, and come early to Safari and park in the trailer area! LOL!

And the flood led placement.. I'll install with some reused Yakima hard turn bolts so I can swivel them.. While not dirt road proof it should be good/better for my uses and allows for awnings

Floods and rear porch light are in and functional.
All light is the picture is supplied by the trailer running on battery.

Projects left before we're going camping next weekend are..

Kitchen side lights (shelf back lighting and full wing door lights)

Fridge tie downs and a set in the front for wolf boxes..

After we camp we'll see what needs to change, be added, removed...

Detail on the flood light mounts... L bracket (will probably need to be replaced with reinforced ones) Hand turn Buckle from a Yakima rack with matching bolts and lock washers allow me to swivel the front or rear quickly Right/left are switched independently via the rear switch panel. Everything is run through the roof (I need to silicone it next)

And at $3/mount I can experiment a bit with it..

Curtains and pulled by a horse, and you will qualify to read palms, and play the tambourine!

I love it!
