    Re: Bush Lapa mods - Fridge drawer support pole.

    I thought of this but my reasoning was that those things was designed for stationary use of the van, not tugging. Also, attaching a pull strap to them would probably require some modification. I then...

    Die stort se pale gaan saam die stortseil in die stort se sak soos die awning se pale in die awning se sak ingaan. Daar is genoeg plek en dan is alles wat saam werk bymekaar.

    I actually prefer the old/current roof, positioning the solar panels optimally with a 45 roof is easy. I believe set-up and breakdown would be faster as well than with a pop-up.
