    The following mods on my Wilderness 450
    - Rubberizing of crucial parts (front, sides, inside wheel arches, etc.)
    - 220V AC Input with 2 x 220V outlet plugs on both sides of the trailer
    - Include a Power Pack & 105ah Battery in the nose part
    - 12v DC Led lights all around and inside of the trailer (nose, kitchen, inside trailer and at the back)
    - Replaced gas stove with Electric 2xPlate stove.
    - Include a spice rack inside the kitchen part.
    - Kitchen part lined with rubber lining
    - Built a steel frame that fits over the existing back slide drawer and boxes and add an additional drawer system on top of the steel frame. (now accommodate 8 x ammo boxes)
    - Add a checker plate/door over the opening above the spare wheel. (Smaller items and table are secured)

    Attached are some pictures to look at.

    Some nice Ideas here, I am just getting started kitting myself out for camping but the one thing I've done specifically for camping is a Dual Battery system for my Triton. I only have a small battery in it at the moment as it was a battery I was given and is ample for my current needs. The battery is in the engine bay connected via a cole hersee solenoid linked to the ignition switch. There are 2 outputs running to the back, a 25mm cable with a 50 amp fuse supplying 2 x brad harrison plugs in an aluminium housing I made. There is also a 2,5mm 5 amp line supplying 2 x "Cigarette" 12v outlets built into the same box. The wire coming out the top of the aluminium box is a power supply to my canopy light which is a 27 LED National Luna on an adjustable bracket.

    Like your setup. Now looking to do the same. Can you give me details of the track system you used, where to get or the make.

    Must also say, love the kitchen amo box, very neat.
    Cheers,
    Victor
