    Try to contact the guy at Choongi #26 Tarnol, where they have auctioned vehicles. One of the Kabaria on the right side knows some one building Caravans very near to their compound. Once he told me about couple of foreigners bought a Army auctioned truck from him and it was converted in to Caravan.

    hi jeepaholic, i can help you in this regard but will have to see the trailer to make an assesment of the work required and then can guide you accordingly. I got few caravans fabricated in isb from different people, but let me remind you it may become a costly project.

    Your digital camera should have a cable included, to connect camera to your PC through USB port. Using this cable you can download the pictures to your PC.

    I have posted something for you on this subject on other forum.
