No wonder it took you a while to make there is a lot of thought put into that by just looking at photos.

Cheers it certainly folds up more compact than what you think only if I could fit one of these to my camper :(

Fair enough.... That is a draw back with the hard floor campers I think - is the space.

Us too, the kitchen is only there for the very extreme weather. in the 4-5 yrs we had it, it has made no more than 6 cups of coffee and heated up 1 can of baked beans. Still nice to know its there for a backup or for extreme conditions.

I use the kitchen in my hard floor camper all the time, it is so much better than the one I used to have.

I do have 2 different setups though, one for longer term camping with an extra table and one for short term.

To quote my old man "you dont have a dog and bark yourself"
So the answer to your question is no - I can weld, but it looks more like bird sh!t than a good penatrating weld.

Instead I manage a structural steel works - I employ 14 people in a work shop who can weld and a further 4 who work on site ;)

Actually I wish I could weld much better than I do. I'm going to spend a bit of time down on the workshop floor this year to learn a bit more. I'm also going to spend a bit of time with one of my site boys who lives right near where I'm looking to buy a house who is actually a shipwright and naval engineer - pretty cluey fella. So by the end of it I should at least be able to do a little bit of stuff.
Hopefully I learn a bit cause it would come in handy around the house sometimes!

Thanks for the additional photos they make it a LOT clearer! Though I think if I end up going this route I'll buy one from Drifta - I'm a pen pusher and unfortunately not very handy with a set of tools for wood working (cars are fortunately a different story)

I can assure you my welds looked like bird sh!t until the grinder got to them :armsup

If you end up changing your mind and want some more pics, just sing out.
