Please excuse me if this has been answered before, but I am new at this. I intend installing external additions such as a ladder up the back to the roof and a specialist mast to my new BT. Is there a way of determining accuractely the position of the alumunium framework so that it can be screwed to? Or is it drill and see?? Len.

Len, I read a tip somewhere that said put your caravan into a very cold environment overnight and the frost or condensation will highlight the aluminium framework for you. Then mark it with tape so you don't forget it for doing the work you want to do. Might work. Angie

Thanks Angie. I should have mentioned that I live in Cloncurry. Todays temp is to be well above frost level, but thank you for your response Len

I think all Bushtrackers have a standard frame apart from window position, so a call to Tracey might give you all the details that you require. My van is 2 years old now and a small section of ceiling that was only glued up at that time, and not pop riveted as well came loose.Bushtracker staff knew exactly where the roof cross members were and in no time drilled a couple of holes and put pop rivets in for us. I have found their after sales service excellent. I had a heater fitted yesterday and and some electrical wiring changed and again the service was excellent. Brian.

G'day Len, I did some repair work (improvement) on my aircon unit on the roof. Before I stood on the roof I found the frames by pressing the outer sheets slightly with my thumb until I felt a frame and marked it with permanent niko pen for next time or the annual clean. You might be able to do this on the rear sheet as well ?? If you get frame spacings from BTi you might be able to confirm with the thumb method ?? Anthony
