• Just back from 3 days in the Yorkshire Moors where polycarbonate shield under Lewmar hatch had a good test. Stayed one night in a howling freezing rainstorm right up on the tops. Just the faintest hint of condensation around Lewmar perimeter frame and no discernible heat loss through polycarbonate shield / hatch. I had been worried the internal temperature round the front bed area under the hatch may be a problem in very cold weather but thankfully it's not the case.

    Also hit some tricky sections including a 75cm deep fast-flowing river ford and a fairly long 1:3 (33%) climb. The truck just got on with it using 3rd gear in low ratio box for both scenarios.

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.
