    not quite sure if it is a motorhome or a caravan, a bugger to heat at night but daytime in the desert magic. end door rather than side, no inside walls left so may even be a curtainside lorry. Great funsters tent.

    I think this concept could be adapted for a motorhome ... an awning cum safari room .. only problem is an entrance doorway

    Oh ye of little faith - in the centre of the trailer /van sides there is a window and what looks like 2 air con grills -On the opposite end to that will be the door :thumb:

    youve got it all wrong

    This trailers sides fold down so you are in the space anyway...and for all who think its an expansion of space you are all wrong......this is my prototype aaa battery charger using a single solar cell, deflecting the suns rays onto the cell.....I am trying to improve on Jims prototype..(see thread increasing solar energy...)

    Enrtrance and exit

    Im a newbie yet its so obvious to me.....the entrance and exit to the device is entirely at the users discretion.

    Step 1. buy a very sharp stanley knife.....

    For a motorhome:

    [​IMG][/IMG]

    Hinge the door wall at the top edge and it's sorted.
    It just needs marine-quality seals rather than the tube of mastic and rusty screws that motorhomes usually use.
