An interesting build. Shame the windscreen on a Landy doesn't open up like an old splitscreen VW combi, that would be perfect for ventilation.

Don't know whereabouts you live, but why don't you bring the trailer along to LandyLive! at Stratford-upon-Avon Racecourse next month? No matter that it's halfway though the build, the fact is folk tend to find that far more interesting than the finished article.

Over to you!

A mate of mine has just built something very similar it's a sanky base with a disco rear (disc braked) axle and a defender rear tub / cab cut and shut with military side windows he's also left the windscreen in place with wipers although they now work manually so he can open the curtains and wipe any rain off the glass for a clear view out. He's fitted levelling feet to all four corners and last time I saw it he was about to fit out the interior with cooker, sink etc.

I did think of the defender tub, but it made it more restrictive on space inside, and i am not a small guy! love the idea of the wipers!

My sankey is already braked so i havent had to mod anything there - just need to find a handbrake lever as this has gone missing down the road at some point - once this is fitted it will be fully braked (once they are overhauled!!!)
