I've got the fridge where your feet are at the moment. I can access through the back side window, under the awning, or from inside the back door. I have gull wings coming from both rear side windows, mainly for visibility sake.
I'm now having a conundrum regarding the external fold down table. If I put it on the drivers side (same side as the fridge), will I still be able to lean over enough to pull things out of the fridge? If I put it on the passenger side, I'll not be able to have shade from the awning...
So I haven’t done anything to the Troopy since the Salalah trip, short of driving it, enjoying it, and cleaning it.
I took it out in to the desert a couple of nights ago to get some reasonable photos of it now it’s (nearly) externally finished. It’s still low-40’s (Celsius) in the afternoons, dipping in to high 30’s as the sun drops, and humidity is climbing up to crazy figures again, a sign that winter is on its way.
Work to be completed, hopefully by the beginning of October, will be the passenger side of the interior, an underbody watertank and Gullwings, which have finally been dispatched from Australia after 15 weeks of waiting.
I need to do something with the brakes as with these tyres, and all this weight, the stock set up is really struggling.
Off to Oman this weekend again, in search of cooler climates at the top of Jebel Shams. 3000m - the highest mountain in the Arabian Peninsula. Should see night time temperatures drop down to 20c.
