Sankey Gourmet Kitchen Trailer Build

Hi Guys,

I hope you are still chuckling at the title of this thread, Some time ago i decided to build a sankey off road camping trailer, I have to admit to being somewhat inspired by "wiggs". i love his ideas and Hi Tech approach, whilst my build uses similar components to his it is constructed using a different body work design with some of my own mad ideas.

Over the next few months i will update pictures and continue to post updates here

I should really start by thanking "Bodsy" for all the help he has given me, firstly by collecting the trailer in the UK and delivering it to the ferry for me back in July of last year, i am ashamed to say that it just sat there until about three months ago when the summer is coming panic hit me. And secondly for being my UK address for deliveries from UK company's that cant manage to ship all the way to Ireland !!

I got stuck in cutting bits out of the chassis and welding bits back in, i modified the chassis by extending the draw-bar by 2 feet to make the trailer easier to reverse and give more room for the extended body, i added brackets to hang a 70ltr water tank just slightly in front of the axel and more brackets to fit a 20ltr LPG tank at the back of the chassis.

I stripped and copper greased all the parts of the braking system that needed it, i had to replace the brake pipe after extending the draw bar, i then checked the operation of the breaking system.
After that cleaning and painting took place, the chassis got two coats of hammerite black, the next step was wiring, i stripped all the original wiring from the trailer and replaced it with new, using a 13 pin plug. I added wiring for the gas tank and water tank contents gauges and allowed for the trailer alarm system to flash the indicators as well.

Next instalment: Fitting water and LPG tanks

i know what you mean about the burger van look, maybe it will be ok when it is silver, the main thing is it will be well functional.

Sankey Gourmet Kitchen Trailer Build

Part 2, Water and LPG Tank Installation


So i wanted to fit a water tank under the body of the trailer, on the chassis. It took me ages to find the right tank, then i discovered the Fiamma 70ltr tank was the exact right size to fit into the chassis just over the axle. This requires you to cut a bare out that is just there for wires to run across, once its out the tank will fit in the space with a few simple brackets to hold it.

The LPG tank was fitted in a similar way, i had to remove two bits of angle at the rear of the chassis, there purpose was to reinforce the towing point at the centre of the rear cross member. By removing these i was able to mount the LPG tank 4" higher. I simply replaced them with some flat steel arranged to do the same reinforcing job but on the top of the chassis instead.

The tank i used is a 20ltr steel tank, this was chosen mainly because of its size and the fact that it fits between the chassis rails perfectly. Both of these tanks were fitted to the chassis to make more room inside the trailer for other goodies.

Next Instalment: Body and wheel arches.
