The resorts out here are pretty damn flat, being in a national park they are very restricted in the area that they can use and I can understand the impact it would have if every dickhead were able to access these areas. I was quite disappointed to find numerous cigarette butts on carruthers peak, smokers seem to think butts are acceptable litter for some reason.

It looks like your camper has a radar blip of a small bat. Stealth technology and all.
Looks like some great spring riding terrain right there. Much steeper looking than what I have seen of the resort pics. Good stuff.

Its just a box really. It has one permanent bed across ways and another removable one. Its big enough so that you dont feel claustrophobic inside it and also as aerodynamic as I could make it whilst still fitting my 6'3" across ways.
The gas cooker and stuff I just keep under the bed in a storage area. Ill take some pics when all my gear is cleaned out.
It cost me about $3000 to build and saved me over $4000 in accom this season. It costs me 3litres/100klm in fuel (0.79 gallons/100 miles) compared to when its not on and it just slides in, 2 man job, 4 bolts hold it down to the chassis. Takes about 20 mins to load/unload.
