    Here in Australia, 2 axles only needs a Medium Rigid licence, but as soon as one goes to 3 axles, one needs a Heavy Rigid licence but the killer is that: the insurance/rego suddenly goes through the roof. I have heard of horror stories where the rego was simply unaffordable. If I could find a 6x6 at a good price, I'd be removing the centre axle, as its not doing much for motor home usage (not as if one is hauling a 1000 tonne train around) but the longer frame could have benefits.

    Hi, Where did you get the ladder on the side of the cab please?

    By the way: For noise, I am told that good noise cancelling headphones actually work.

    It starts with this post. The whole thread is worth reading. He puts a lot of detail in his posts.

    First up headed to a friends house to bend some 1.25" tubing for the side rails...Man I need to get a bender, soooo many things I could build.






    Notching tubing for the steps




    Steps and mount plates




    Two of the mounting bolts will go through the rear double lip and have lock nuts on the rack, the rest are set with rivet nuts.






    And one rail in place, more to come tomorrow.
