We finally got the WHOLE camper trailer set up today. We’d previously set up just the main bit as our house is on a slight (45 degree) hill, and the swear words that were uttered that day meant there was no way that we were going to attempt the annexe too. Pretty sure there would have been bloodshed and/or divorce.
Very thankful to our good mates The Howies for letting us use their backyard and also their expertise. Having recently acquired a camper trailer themselves, Jase was a bloody gem and has given us some great tips to make the whole thing a lot easier.
So we’re in the wetting it down process. The good thing about it being at The Howies’ place is that “wetting down the tent” becomes code for “having a quiet lager”.
That’s us, minus the dog, out the front of our new home. We went with the Sandpiper model from Swag Camper Trailers, and upgraded to the 12 foot tent. We had considered the extra room as well, but now that it’s up this is plenty.
There’s a few things to do, put some saddles on some water pipes and a bit more mucking around, and she’ll be right.
