Re: Adventure Overland 2018 - Sept 22-23

Disappointing turnout on the adjacent Leafers Overland stand with only 3 vehicles turning up - me, Paul Kellett, Mick O and William - in all 6 of the original Moroccan crew from 2011. Too many fair weather fairies sadly, their cards are marked! Apart from the show, the bands on Friday and Saturday n...

Re: Dormobile roof aperture dimensions

Thanks Simon, I checked Mick O's out last weekend so I have photos and measurements now. However I think I might give this one a miss, I find the task rather daunting. Reading Teri-Ann's detailed decription, it's clearly pretty complicated, not something I have the facilities for let alone the energ...

Re: Dormobile roof aperture dimensions

Got the instructions, thank you. I didn't think the exact aperture size was critical, especially as I don't have the Dormobile bunk frames, although I might adapt a 'stretcher' type to fit. A step nearer....

Re: Dormobile roof aperture dimensions

Thanks Rob and in answer to your question Michiel I do have a spare LWB roof (2 in fact - one is a tropical job) and the plan is to make up the dormobile roof using trestles, then take off and mothball the 'pristine' roof which could be re-fitted later. Attached is a photo of what's left of the fram...

Re: Dormobile roof aperture dimensions

Now we're getting somewhere! Thanks Michiel, that's the measurement I was after, even if it's approximate. Yes I saw that Dormobile will supply one for £225!

Re: Dormobile roof aperture dimensions

OK Michiel understand all that - one long side of the frame is missing entirely and the opposite short sides have rusted to the extent that I don't know how long they should be so I can fashion a replacement.

Re: Dormobile roof aperture dimensions

Yes I've got all the photos Michiel but need the physical dimensions so I can have a new frame made up.

Dormobile roof aperture dimensions

I'm getting a bit closer to fitting (with a lot of help for sure) my Dormobile roof kindly supplied by AlexB. The metal aperture frame needs replacing as it only has 3 sides - the fourth one rusted away so I need to know the dimensions of the aperture so I can get the angle grinder out and/or the di...
