Here are a few pics of our home built Bush Trailer. We call her Bush Baby. Took my wife (Janette & myself) 2 months to build. Have had very many ideas since 2008. Every place we camp, the ideas were re-invented or changed until we decided to build our own bush trailer which meets our requirements. We will probably think of building another trailer in the nearby future. Enjoy .. Bokram

Hi Bokram,

Welcome to the forum!

I agree with Leon. The good thing is that "YOU" built it according to your own desires and will always have sentimental value! When you want to go bigger or better you will become so attached, you have difficulty in letting it go!

You're quite right, we've had a few camps so far. After every camp we come back even more excited and make a few changes to make her even better, but we're all fired up to build another one soon.

Welcom to the forum. May I ask what the cost of this build was?

Give or take, a few extra's still to be added, approx around R95 000. But you know it never stops there, because the longer you camp, the more one likes to be organized. I do however intend building another one, together with my wifes input, with a very more accurate costing structure. Building this type of project with ones partner is an all time high, especially when you get to test it for the first time.

Leon, agter elke man staan 'n hardwekende vrou!!!!, met baie idees, en soms werk dit nogal!!!!

Sonder 'n vrou soos myne wat 'n ware raakvatter is, sal ek self nie aldag die mas opkom nie, ek kan dus nie anders as om haar net baie lief te he nie... sy is my anker en my inspirasie. Waaranders dink julle kom al die blink idees vandaan?
