Time for a roadtrip.
Cool. Is that custom made? Or commercially available?
Hi Blue Heaven, that indeed looks really cool! Good gear for endurance driving...
Where did you get that one made?
@Dylanpete @gcgp, went to the local bedding store and purchased a 5 inch double foam mattress with cover for $110, unzipped the cover and cut out the wheel arches, replaced the cover and tucked the loose part under to to neaten the finish up a bit, there's enough flexibility to fold the seats up right and fold the mattress over itself.
Hi Blue heaven - where are you going?
It's a mystery!
As PJF000 says, it's a mystery, I've made all the pre-trip phone calls and emails but I'm not expecting all the 3 phase plugs to be working correctly when we arrive at each location, we have a few spare days up our sleeves in case 10amp trickle charging is the only option, had a great day today, met some really positive people, stay tuned for more.
Make Bjorn Nyland style videos. This'll be really interesting.
Don't you have to do a tremendous amount of pre-planning and phone calls Blue heaven when you plan a trip like this? I end up with pages of tables and printouts. Great fun!

It will be interesting to see the tables for the Melb-Darwin trip your planning.
You may need to bring some spare wheel on that mystery trip!
Different road, 3 of those signs in WA and at least 5 in Australia.
Wish I had a dollar for every time I said the words three...phase....power....outlet.
There's no shortage of power available, no shortage of 3 phase, it's just a matter of are they 5 pin, do they still work, and how much junk is piled up against them.
I picked up a spare the first week we got the car, also carry a repair kit, last time I drove the Hedland/Broome road in the ICE it was 43 (early April ) destroyed 2 tyres in a 3 hour stretch.
Rolled into Exmouth without any problems, got to our overnight accommodation, the pre-organized 3 phase plug was in poor condition, the replacement requested by the owners was not followed up, we went for a walk around town this morning and found a mechanic happy to let us charge from his 32 amp 3 phase, the outlets are there it's just a matter of persistence, hopefully this town will have a destination charger fairly soon.
Plenty of power in the middle of nowhere, 1400kms North of Perth.
56 metres, 190 tonnes, 600 horsepower, 1800nm torque, I think we got him on power to weight ratio though!
