all you do then is wind the tent up with the winch. drive the 4wd under it and lower on the roof.

all this can be done by one person... cause no one else will help

enjoy

Thats Perfect.........


















....for the swallows, indian/noisy mynas, starlings to build a nest, they love a bucket of sand as a nest base. Or you could fill it with mud and then the pee wee's would love ya tooooooooo.

Na' It's good to get that little project done. Good job

Hi Greg, I dont own one of those tents, nor do I want one (not suitable for my needs), but that has to be the best explanation of how to do something I have seen. Oh, and a great set up, too.
Totally understand about the shed...lol, 'Whacker

Thanks for that Greg - those pics show it so clearly.

Personally I would have used a thicker rope, but obviously that one's strong enough :)

Greg. Shame one you for being embarrassed about the so called mess in your shed. You should as an Aussie be proud of it. Thats not a mess. A blokes shed should be a mess, or preferably a disaster area. How else are you going to find anything, and more importantly conceal stuff from the females? If you keep it tidy women want to put stuff in it. It is your duty as an Aussie bloke to keep your shed in a messy state. Aim up boy.

Thanks Greg and well worth the wait, a picture is worth a thousand words.
Looks like a variation will be have to be installed in Alice now to enable me to remove and refit our RT tent

Thanks
