    Default My Aluminium Canopy - Isuzu

    I managed to build my own canopy - WHOAA.

    I am not going to write a short story, but will let the photo's do the talking. In the near future I will do the roof rack, the awning mounting, roof top tent mounting, kitchen unit, recovery box, fridge slide, drawer system, etc, etc, etc.........PHEW

    I Enjoy doing this so much, I normally finish it, sell it, and build new ones, but that's just me............

    Here are the pictures, I will update this post as I go along. ENJOY

    You will see that I built the back door in the same shape as the canopy as I do not want the unpractical square door at the back. I use the canopy for other things than camping.
    The "kitchen" & "utility" boxes going in on the sides will be made removable, as to maximise the usages of the canopy.

    About the same as a new glassfibre canopy

    Plus minus R 8000, should be able to do kitchen and utility shelving for less than R10 000. I need to build another 4 in the near future, selling them for ten grand a piece, plain, with 2 windows, and one door either side - double cab.

    Hierdie is 15 maande se beplanning, en spaar!! Toe ons in Junie 2010 in Botswana was, was dit een van die mees bespreekte onderwerpe.

    Hi Pieter,

    Hoe het jy daai Pressure Locks gate sny benader?

    Ek het ouer Alu-Cab wat nog met daai bayonet tipe locks toemaak. Ek het nou dieslefde soort locks gekry as wat jy hier gebruik het, maar wonder nog hoe gaan ek die gate maak, en ook hoe ek gaan verseker dis op die regte plek.

    Mens wil nie graag 'n gat boor/sny/vyl en dan agterkom die ding pas nie reg nie.....So hoe het jy dit gedoen?

    Hodg,

    Ek het die slot uitmekaargehaal, en die "blink" gedeelte wat aan die binnekant kom, vasgehou teen die plaat. Met 'n kokiepen het ek die binnekant uitgemerk, en 4 klein gaatjies deurgeboor na buite.
    Een van die gaatjies groter as die ander.
    Ek het dan eenvoudig met my jigsaw uitgesny. Wees versigtig, jy het nie baie speling nie, anders koop jy plaat!!!

    Netjies Pieter; dit lyk asof jy duim square gebruik uit mild steel? Is daar enige rede hoekom jy juis dit verkies het bo Aluminium?

    Theunis,

    Ek het 38x25 rectangular tubing gebruik vir die hoof raam, en 25x19 vir die deure se rame - hierdie het ek so bietjie "overdesign" vir klein deurtjies, maar so leer mens.
    Die rede hoekom ek staal gebruik het en nie aluminium nie: Die voltooide staal raam is slegs 15% swaarder as met soortgelyke alu. Onthou om dieselfde sterkte te kry, moet jy baie dikker alu gebruik as staal.
    Dit werk makliker, goedkoper, goedkoper om te sweis, ens........

    Ek het ook my rollbar afgehaal, en het my konstruksie so gedoen om so veilig as moontlik te wees in geval van 'n gerondrollery.

    Dankie vir die kompliment.

    Pieter,

    Ja - dit klink of dit kan werk. My probleem is die duere is reeds vas - en die canopy op die bakkie. En ek sien nie dat ek hulle gaan afhaal om die gate te maak nie, so ek sal versigtig moet boor en sny....op daai hoogte en daai angle....

    Dankie vir die info.

    I used a "thinner" tubing on the door frames, ie: 25mm outside frame, 19mm door frames. I then put a 25 x 3mm flat bar on the inside, and stuck "small-d" rubber to it.
