Hi Bretto

Very nice, great job.

Smart way to get what I assume are openable windows in the Bedroom. I replaced a few of mine with sheeting and then cut windows into that.

thanx for posting the picks

MMa2S: yep, that was the plan BUT I would never do that again. Far easier to kick a glass panel out and then metal fill and cut out for hopper windows.
Colin, it worked !!!!!! woo hoo ! :D

Very nice. I'll be sending my dad a link to this, he's building one at the moment. I like the blinds at the front. Lots of good ideas in there. His is a 1978 IBC. Flat floor, rear engine. It's about 3/4 done. Not quite livable yet, but they get out in it occasionally.

Colin,
CC53NN and has a Detroit label just below the plate, but before you get close enought to read it you can hear it in another postcode ;D
Hayseed,
The shitter feeds into the "black" tank - a 215L blue drum used for stock feed which costs $15, add a 2" dump valve from Bummings at $30,mount a porcelain shitter on top (also from Bummings) at $95 and there is the number ones and two done ;D
Do the same for the "grey" water tank - another 215L blue drum used for stock feed which costs $15, add a 2" dump valve from Bummings at $30, plumb the shower, hand basin, and kitchen sink into that and then that is two from two done. Easy peasy and cheap.
Fresh water is a purpose built 450L poly tank from award tanks in Qld - they cost $1 per litre of capacity (min 300) and a bloody good tank too.
cheers

In the 1960s, I recall a caravan named 'Sally IV', a pun on 'sally forth'.

Here are two more mobile homes converted from Flxible Clippers.

very nice Bret, that's quite a living quarters. How much do you take her out? And the GM looks spotless! How many horses is she putting out? Might have to talk donaldson exhausts when you visit too...
