Just goes to show how nothing is standard.
The Door or flap in the awning is offset.
There are more guy lines than I've ever seen.
Is the kitchen original or a late add on? Mine and the other early ones I've seen may have had sinks but stoves were rare.
It has the earlier wooden arm support for the seat that was replaced by two poles early on.
The lino is the same as mine but there is a covering over the side walls I don't have.


As an aside I see one of the heaters that are meant for the briefcase cookers. Are you having success with that?

Yep the Door/flap is slightly offset, i will post some more awning pics soon. the sides have about 8 guys each side i think. ( takes longer to peg, the awning. Than setting up main unit and making first brew )
The Kitchen as far as i know is original.
The only major change is the inside trailer panel's replaced to aluminium sheeting and covered in carpet.

Yer the Heater works Well. Only thing i have ever noticed is, you feel a light temp difference, in the trailer well. ( i saved gas the other night by putting kettle on top of heater. took a bit longer to boil but worked.

We've looked and looked and looked for a number on ours, but I think it's buried under 40 plus years of paint. On our jobs to do list is strip all the paint off and have another look. Sorry, I'm not much help. Rolling Eyes

Another post I previewed but never sent D'oh.
And D'oh again I see all the differences bar the most obvious.
All the above have awnings or sun canopies or an awning that doubles as a canopy And the sides are vertical.
I've got sloped sides a'la the top left hand corner of my avatar.

Wow it looks fantastic in that setting, perhaps you should enter the dandy of the month with one of those. Very Happy

How brilliant to have pictures of it from way back.

That unit really is awesome. lovely pictures. a bit perplexed regarding the number and size of the air vents on it. We have only 1 at the front and 1 at the back.

Having the extra vents is good and bad.

I am thinking about putting sliding vent covers on some to help keep the heat in at night.
as you can see from the old pic.s nothing has realy been changed or added since my mum bought it.

Good points.
Good air flow on wet and rainy days. (while keeping back window shut)
easily cleared my step dads farts Idea
Defiantly helps when awning is up.
Also im a Twisted Evil bad bad boy and still smoke so deff helps ( yes im trying to give up)

Bad Points
Sooo want to be able to shut them at night.

Starting to think, they must of played about, with design when making these. as seem to be a few slight changes in the Green ones
