No wasted space

May 18, 2017  •  1 Comment

Had a thought last night about the gap between the pod and the awning. It is about 22-23cm wide and it looked pretty terrible. Another issue I was facing was charging the battery as I wanted to give Michael my 60w solar panel as it was a bit bulky for my ride, so I was looking at 20w to save on space. What I found was a 5w panel, with dimensions of 25x19. How handy, 4 of them in parallel gives me the 20w I was after and run the long way I get an overall size of 1m by 20cm (with rail). So I built a frame with some metal Michael had. Popped it all together and strapped it down. Now I have solar all the time without the need to pull it out of the car. And it looks pretty slick.

Beyond that it was fit the curtains that Kez stitched for me last night. I will still need to sort out 4 of the windows, but I have 2 of them 50% done. It will be a project for while I am on the road. I also picked up some food today to start it out. Looks like I will be going tomorrow and heading west to Rainbow to meet Michael for a bit, then off to Adelaide for the weekend. Then back to Melbourne to pick up supplies and last modifications. Also made it a bit more homey in there with quick access to umbrella and other things!

Test flight starts tomorrow!
