• Instead of just loading some food and heading off for Ukraine as planned I thought I'd cut a big hole in the roof. Can't beat a bit of last minute anxiety.

    Seriously, it's been planned for quite a while. The hole is to be filled by a Lewmar boat hatch which offers a few advantages over most bespoke motorhome hatches, not least that it can be fully opened. This was a fundamental quality as the 'hole' has two main purposes: escape hatch and wildlife viewing. When sitting on the front bed the hole allows pretty unrestricted panoramic views. Ideal for a casual half an hour with binoculars.

    More details will eventually appear in the 'Tweaks' pages.

Tweaks and fixes are an ongoing part of the project. This series of pages form a blog - of sorts - and is intended to give a flavour of the day-to-day realities of living with the truck as issues crop up and tweaks and fixes progress. Many of the posts eventually end up getting written up properly and included in the main body of the Trip Truck site; so if you think you have read any of the older posts somewhere else, you almost certainly have.
