Hi my names Greg, You may know me from such places as Gregs Ice Cream. https://www.facebook.com/Gregsicecreams/ Or other places like Midnight Upholstery Ltd, Greg's drag snags and so on. Anyway the time has come. I got sick of bidding on rubbish caravans and them blowing out of budget so its now my turn to build one that will hopefully stay under budget. Well really it started with liking ice cream and realizing how easy it is to buy ice cream and it takes nothing to sell it, and a word to my accountant while the wife was with me it wasn't to hard to twist @Mrs 64valiant arm into allowing me to get the go ahead on it. And yeah caravans going out of budget, so time to build a caravan. I ended up drawing what i thought would look good on the floor at the shop, its based of a size of caravan i was looking at buying Worked out how much steel i would need and worked a price on everything else and got the go ahead. let the fun begin. ideally would like up and running before the end of Feb and the very latest March
Went and had a gander at this and put a deposit on it about a month ago, and finally organised myself to go get it yesterday. Formerly owned by ESKIN8R who i think originally chopped it up and put it together and then Zebra Dude, who got it painted and sorted the draw bar etc. //oldschool.co.nz/index.php?/topic/26688-zebra-dudes-esky-van-trailer/ (photos are down) I knew i was in the right place! (you will know their works by the trail of bodies) Needed the lights wiring up, + some beers and Ben didnt finish till 6, so by the time it was ready to roll it was pretty late! Ran the gauntlet no troubles at all, and tows well, will go even better with some weight in it. I also managed to convince Ben to through in some schwweeeet rims. In case you are not a wheel aficiondo, they are * 13 x 6JJ * CHEVIOT * TURBO * Anyway today started getting into it, cut down the roofies from the van ( ) hung a gas bottle from a handy attachment and pondered on how to cram a LWB sized vans worth of camping stuff into half an Escort... Solution - Make the small thing bigger with Extentions! Roll * 13 x 6JJ * CHEVIOT * TURBO * to entice only the hottest classiest babes into the stabbin cabin. Need to buy some hardware to mount the doors then start thinking about the interior. Its basically going to be a bedroom for the boy + bathroom and kitchen that I can tow with the 2300, 125 or my daily
