my troopy setup...

Post by oneday on Sun 26 Jul 2015, 6:53 am

will post a series of pics on what I have got nailed to my troopy to make life easy in the bush.

everyone to their own and always on the lookout for any new ideas.

a summer time must have--shade. A awning nailed to the side of my vehicle is a priority and its on the RHS of the 4by.. why --coz I have a solar panel on the roof and I always face my vehicle North so it recharges my 1200cca battery and I get the afternoon shade.

I also have 2 LED worklights on the rear which adjust up and down and swivel 360*

homemade draws are also a must for any vehicle and mine extend 2/3rds of the way into the back of the vehicle. The RH draw has heavy duty roller hinges and are worth the expense. The 2 draws on the Left are friction only.

Toyota must think we are all camels in the West and don't drink coz they forgot to put in stubby holders -- now we have 2 fitted one either side and they work a treat. $2 each out of Kmart-bicycle section.

yep those in the know have a troopy --we carry a shit load of gear when we venture out--note all have bull bars-spot lights and the ever popular LED light bars on the front

This camp fire drum has been with me for that many years I have forgotten..
u will use a very small amount of wood and still stay warm and cook a decent meal.

a drop down slide for yah fridge and those that are vertically challenged is a god send--expensive yes but an absolute necessity. Life is so much easier seeing inside the fridge.

80w solar panel teck screwed to the roof charges the battery which is hooked up via a smart charger which has a feed from the alternator. The two batteries under the bonnet work totally independent from the 3rd fridge battery.

a roof rack and dual spare wheel carrier is a priority plus I have a 3rd spare wheel underneath the vehicle.

that should give a few folks an idea or two.
there's a heap more but later.
