    Shot Karel! That really looks good. Please don't make the mistake of putting the stove on tne door of the kitchen. If you do you use up all the preparation area and you get all the stuff in the kitchen full of oil splatter and steam when you cook. Rather do like I did.See earlier in the fred!

    So before I run to the nearest dealer, does anyone have the latest price from Campwolrd on this drawer extention?

    I'm really keen on something like that but just wondering if it will fit in my budget.

    Build one yourself. See what Karel has done. They want about R11000.00 and you could make one for about R3000.00 All you need is to get a contract welder to weld up a square tube frame. Then use a power screwdriver to put on the checker plate.

    Obviously there are different kind if boxes here. I dont know what u have and what the differences are. But the one I looked at from Jurgens was not R3500.

    Anyway. I started redoing my electrical system today. Will see if I can post some pucs tomorrow.

    The system will have the following working in the order it should
    1. Benten AC-DC 7amp charger
    2. CTEK DC-DC 205 charger
    3. Solar panel input (to CTEK 205)
    4. 220V input with dual isolator 32A
    5. Circuit breakers on DC circuits and AC corcuits
    6. 105A deep cycle bat
    7. Brad harrison plug to connect to alternator while driving
    8. 4 point light switch for 4 LED 5050 strip lights un various places
    9. Multi plug 220V in kitchen area with 16A breaker
    10. 3 x 12V Hella (lighter) outlet sockets

    If all goes well I should be done tomorrow and should NEVER be without power ever again.

    Lekker slaap.
    Karel

    Hi All

    I have had my XT140 now for almost 2 years. It had most of the off the show room floor extra's but decided now to customize it.

    As I had 2 x left thumbs I decided to rather get someone to do it. Yes it is more expensive, but they have been able to accommodate all my requests which would probably have taken me 12 months to do.

    Hi Karel,
    I used a normal tap because I turn off power to the pump so it makes no difference when the tap is opened, no water. That tap just looks so Kool! I want one. Our local hardware sells them. I'm changing mine.

    @ Boslover, You have bought one tough trailer. You will enjoy it so much. As you saw earlier in the thread we had a stainless steel box made for the kitchen. I then made a wooden box made which rides inside the trailer and takes the exact space of 2 ammoboxes. When we get to camp we simply place it on top of the S/S box. If you would like the plans and cutting list for the wooden box PM me and I will send it to you. No problem!!

    Sorry I only see this now. I'm the owner of the R10k jobbie. First of all, it was done before (as far as I know) the Jurgens extension was available.

    When I started out, I intended to do it myself, but at the end I decided to have it done. There were many reasons for my decision. Some of them were explained in the original post.

    Would it be cheaper to do it yourself? Most definitely, but I would like to see some comparisons, in terms of real cost, from people that made the extension and the two storage boxes on the wheel arches. Taking into account the cost of the material, 2k paint and primer, locks etc. used.

    In terms of practicality: We needed extra space for clothes etc and not other stuff. My only problem was storage for the chairs. All the other (heavy) stuff is in ammo boxes inside the trailer. My wife and I are both tall, so no problem with seeing into the bins or reaching the ammo boxes that slides into the bins. The bin in the front has a floor. That we use to store the chairs etc. It also has a compartment to store all the tent poles, which works well for me.

    In short, this works very well for us. Everybody has his/her own needs and I like to see the other ideas. Maybe someday I will change mine again. Who knows?

    Edit to add: The extension is much lighter than the lid it replaces.

    Thanks for your reply Pieter. I am still keen to to get an extension for my XT140. Every bit of info is valuable. The local Jurgens dealer quoted me R 3500.00 for their extension plus fitting.
