So this is what happend to Sharkey's forum

Postby Graynomad » Fri Jun 20, 2014 12:49 pm

After searching several times with no luck for Sharkey's site over the last year or two I gave up, now I just found this by accident.

Great stuff, and my login even worked :) Thanks for doing this.

Welcome back.

Yes, Sharkey has taken a leave of absence from the internet.

Although on the rare occasion, you will see a reply from him, on The Flying Tortoise blog.

Your timing couldn't have been any more ironic either, as you have been mentioned here within the last 24 hours, in the housetruck & bus forums.

Nice to see you here Rob, I've just re read your landcruiser trip. Bloody great journey in an old truck . Fantastic photos of the country side , thanks for sharing :)

The new truck camper proposal is close to my heart , after all the time I have recently spent in the old Chev. I look forward to the build log :thumbup:

Thanks, found it, I will add a post to that thread.

Bloody great journey in an old truck

Yeah that was a great trip, I loved turning up in the middle of nowhere in my $5000 4x4 and everyone else had $95,000 vehicles :)

It's thinking about that trip that was the the catalyst for deciding to build another Landcruiser camper. A vehicle like that can go so many places Wothahellizat can't.

I look forward to the build log

Probably be a year or more, we're a bit short of cash right now and I have a container house to build first.

Hello Rob ... yeah, we all miss Sharkey, but good that Stuart took up the torch ...
I agree with smaller vehicles ... had a PopUp Camper on an old Toyota, took me many places where larger vehicles couldn't go ... camp out of a low topper on my 2011 Toy Tacoma ... thinking about an off road trailer for the old pop-up ... frees the truck up. been looking forward to a new jewel of a TAB by Little Boy ... due out after Christmas ... maybe my age but looking forward to a rig that doesn't require set up ...
Love to hear of the Oz adventures ... maybe someday ...
Glad you found the site ... keep posting. GoodClue.

TAB by Little Boy

Is that the tear drop?

I'm not a huge fan of camper trailers but love tear drops for some reason, must be the retro look.

... Yes ... http://www.golittleguy.com/ is the traditional tear drop ... reputable dealer ... the T@b is their larger cousin. They are introducing a European version of the T@B to the US ... can't get the link to work ... after Christmas. I'd like to check it out.

Their are many off'-road tear drop builders, Littleguy has a good rep in the States. Model links at top of page.

Yeah, like retro ... my 46 Chevy bus and more attest to that ...

Sweet units, they have gone away from the traditional design with the kitchen at the back and outside. They must be a bit larger than traditional to allow you to live inside rather than sleep inside.
