creative transport trailer… solar panel recycling !

In order to get our 30 banana boxes of support materials to the Gambia we needed a trailer.  But upon arrival this would be useless for our purpose.  But our friend Abdoul from Abca Lodge wanted to buy a trailer.  So the deal was made we would buy a trailer and he would take it over from us afterwards.

We bought an open trailer but it would not be possible to transport the banana boxes in this one, unprotected from rain and theft.  So Kurt had the brilliant idea to use solar panels to enclose the trailer.

Some pictures of the early stages of building, and the empty weight of the trailer.  The corps below the lifted trailer is Kurt, our solar specialist always in for a joke…
