Thread: Building a sleeping / shooting box

    Building a sleeping / shooting box

    Well, surprised me when I was given an old caravan chassis in good shape on Tuesday this week and am now planning to fit it out as a 1.60m x 2.00m box on top of it with 4x shooting windows 1x access door and a sleeping bench for those long vigils for catching marauding boar working out on the maize.
    So far no money invested.

    Chassis was shortened today to be more flexible when reversing and so as not to annoy the farmers by covering too much crop area from the farmers field then it was welded back together. Took 3 hours to do so far spent nowt cashwise on it.

    Now it is all painted battleship grey (all I had left over) plus I added some M12 bolts passing through the two (one inside the other and then welded together frames) to function as shear studs to stop any risk of the chassis starting any horizontal movement when starting towing it after it will have been sitting out for some months in one position and then everything locks up a little which would then be stressing out the welds.
    Now it is up to the other hunter on this lease to add the shooting box on top of the chassis.
