  7. Re: Touring Namibia with a standard 5ft Venter trailer

    The only spot welds are on the original frame, which I agree is a weakness and was where there were some cracks, which is why it is now reinforced. There is no welding on the reinforcement.

  8. Re: Touring Namibia with a standard 5ft Venter trailer

    I took an old 6' Venter and added a 700mm high home built frame on top for a kitchen and rooftop tent on top (there's a few examples on the forum if you search).

    Re: Ranger T6 dual battery

    There's also the option of running your cables through the chassis rail. A bit fiddly and you will need a feed wire to pull everything through, but probably the best way to protect the cables if you...

    I bought 2 of the Tentco 10cm and while they don't self-inflate to 10cm, it literally took 3 breaths in each side to fully inflate.
