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?

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.

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!

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.

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.
