Well the Sankey trailer rebuild has been put on ice due to Norwegian vehicle inspectors only giving me a 200 kg usable load on the sankey trailer.
A local made trailer with a Land Rover defender bolt circle was available and purchased.
I can load this with a 1000kg.
The first job was to get rid off excess stuff.
Stripped down to bear chassis shows that the frame is not as strong as I would like so I have to go up a dimension in my own build.
I will make it modular so I can easily change the chasis further down the road should it deem necessary.
I am building it around the the Howling Moon trailer top tent.
It will be delivered next week.
Stripped down makes it eaier to take measurements.
Bits left over now sold - money in the kitty.
I have ordered 8 door locks from the bay of E. now I need an extra 1.
I will use the hub adaptors to fit Discovery 3 wheels to the defender hubs.
The studs are a little too long,
So they are off for machining.
The aluminium for the frame was ordered to day, if my calcs are correct then the frame should come in around about 30 - 35 kg
