    Got to test the Challenger trailer out this last weekend at Zinkwazi.
    We arrived in heavy rain and that remained all night. Super impressed with the tent and awnings, no leaks. Was a schelp.at first to setup as I hadn't had a chance prior to going away to set it up. But once I figured it out all was good. One thing I need to figure out is how to not pull the kitchen awning right over when I open the tent. I suppose practice will make perfect.
    Awesome trailer. I have no doubt I'll add some modifications to it to make it ours. The one issue is lighting inside the tent. Need to figure that out.

    I would camp a few time before you make any changes. We have used our trailer now for 2 years with current setup and only now changed drawers/kitchen setup.

    We have found permanent mounted lights difficult inside these type of tents. We have settled on 2 off these, as they are able to hang on zips/hooks inside the tent. We have the checkers bush baby ones. Available in orange and black. Used it over long weekend passed not charged once. also find them at outdoor warehouse. Checker were cheaper for same quality

    I took a lumeno 6 led diffused light, glued it with sikaflex to the aluminium angle on the side of the base - about arms length from the door. Can reach it easily from the tent door, and also from the bed. Ran the wire underneath the mattress to where it had to come down to the power source. Drilled a small hole in the tent base to bring the wire down to the trailer, drilled a hole in the trailer roof and fitted a rubber grommet through which the wire passed and connected to the power source. It provides ample light inside the tent (and enough light at the top on the bed as well), permanent installation with no lights or wires hanging from the tent roof. And the light is perfectly safe there - the tent cover doesn't bother it as it 'bulges" around it nicely and when in storage the light is always protected by the tent cover. I fitted the tent light, as well as my exterior lights this way and works like a charm.
