delica & trailer fitout
I did have a caravan but decided it was a bit much to be towing around just for
one person, besides there was no room for tools when friends asked me to go up
country to do some house renovations. I didn't want to be putting tools, shelves
etc in my new tow vehicle.
As happens, one thing lead to another and I got the idea of having a bit of a
working holiday on the big island. With the cost of fuel etc, I thought relying
just on my small super nest egg could strain the ‘ole purse strings. I needed
something that would allow me to carry tools but still have a camp site to come
back to at the end of a hard day, where I could cook and sleep. Tenting was
something I did when I had more years before fifty than less afterwards.
I took it away for a test trip over Christmas 2012 and this is how it all looks
The annex was made to my design and is attached to the trailer. It all works
fine and as with most things some fine tuning will make it work even better.
