as you say "built inverter *into* storage unit" hope you have left plenty of free air space for cooling around the inverter in the storage unit, just so it does not overheat and fail or worse still create a fire hazard :-((

Gday Mainey, yeah theres heaps of free space around it.It is fitted beside the draw system, where the wheel arches are in the way.At least 75mm around all edges and open on the back for 900mm.

G'day Nick

Just interested in how you built (and cost of it) the flip over rack for the Tambo??

We have a Tambo and are taking off for 5-6 months next year with a 10 & 15 yr olds in tow.... who both want their OWN tourer tent, so they don't have to sleep in camper with Mum & Dad.

Obviously, this means more gear to carry and we have often discussed the fact it would be so handy to have a rack on the camper.
