This is the overall "camping" cover in my Ribcraft 4.8. (no, not the shed it's in ). Not a lot of room inside but, as they say, if you've had a few you can sleep anywhere

For what its worth here is the cabin(!!) erected(!!!) on my rib.

Just to confirm a common thread on the postings a good measure of the local beer always guarantees a good nights sleep.

Regards

Mark

P.S (Mike) You are correct your night-cap and morning brew are the best Iíve come across.

Excellent. I feel humbled for even worrying about it...

Bivvy on the boat it is then. I think i will use my old poncho and tarp as a raincover and i can just about get a foam sleeping pad down each side of the centre consol so all should be fine...

and of course, i'll take a crate of 'strong continental lager' (tha can't get good beer down 'ere tha' knows...) as a sleeping pill.

I thaangu

Hi Edward,
g'day, just noticed you've got the same boat as us (is it 5.5 or 5.05? cf your 1st post)...would be very very interested as to how you turn it into a sleeping area....please post photos. I'm afraid hubby and I are not exactly sylph-like and all I can envision is us jammed between console & nose somewhere....somehow not appealing. !!! All very well for you palatial lot. And another thing. Please bear in mind we ladies need toilet facilities (at last I know what you lot use an A frame for...)

Sincerely interested in your progress please!!!

The Missus
