Sankey camping trailer build MK2

Here's my second trailer build . Had many good years in the first one , but a few things were bugging me . A new awning purchase made it impossible for me to have things the way I wanted . So time for number 2 . Iv kept the same trailer running gear as it tows great and is already extended .

It will basically be the same sort of layout as before , constructed from GRP panels this time . Unfortunately if I want to make the most of the awning the roof tent will have to come off the side . Not a problem for the tent .. But the downstairs awning is then going to block most of one side of the trailer Sad

I have a few plans to hopefully still make the most of it though .

I have to say a big thanks to Chris Tyler for a his help and endless questions . I think my trailer will end up looking like his twin Embarassed , but I think in some ways he improved on my original design Thumbs Up

It's probably not going to be as well documented as the last , but I have 6 weeks to get it to a reasonable State as I'm off camping at Easter Shocked

Let the build begin

There here .. I got them from a place in Leeds . I had emailed 4 companies .. Only one bothered to reply , so they got my business . Don't know if the price was high or low as there was no comparison Shocked

They took 4 weeks to be made to size.

I want to be able to still when needed use my Sankey as designed, it's been my skip replacement for circa 12 years, so it's a top to mount the RT that also creates a sealed storage are for camping gear Thumbs Up

Old chassis .. Had to relocate the electrics as a water tank is going in the chassis .
While I was doing it , I updated the car and trailer to 13 pin . Need the extra functions for car battery monitoring , reverse signal for brake fluid diverter ( saves getting out to lock the pintle )















Water tank is actually round the wrong way .. But I was only measuring up for brackets Laughing

Water tank is 60 litres .. A little less than I wanted .. But I didn't want it any lower






Brake diverter




GRP ready

Off you go

Go wiggs ! Go wiggs,

good to see you got started, FFS don't make it better than mine or i will have to go again !!

Glad to see you went with 13 pin electrics, and i love the brake diverter (good idea that)

Give me a shout if you need a hand with the network stuff.

Thinking about selling my trailer after this summer season to make way for the next slightly bigger project.
