YET another fella who wanted to be different and stand out was Glen Bower. Glen’s Troopy has custom front, side and rear barwork knocked up by Thorburns Fabrications, a Sydney based mob that’ll seemingly have a crack at anything a customer wants. Glenn has coated all mods in a beaut blue drop, except for that shiny work-of-art stainless-steel snorkel, which is also a Thorburns creation.
Glen has added a fulllength K9 alloy roof rack onto which he has solar panels feeding his battery pack, which in turn powers the fridge. Glenn has made full use of every square inch of internal cavernous space to fit his Troopy out for long-term travel with his fairer half, Peta. Glenn consulted with ORS for custom shelves, drawers and drop-down tables. An awning and detachable side room makes for the perfect escape machine, and Glen escapes with a recent fitting of front and rear Elockers.
A smart addition to Glen’s Troopy comes in the form of split CV boots, from Gearing Dynamics, which keep the swivel housing and king pin bearings clean. Another great addition is a full set of Tyre Checkers wheel nut indicators, which visually warn of impending loosening of nuts prior to catastrophic wheel separation.
Lots of thought went into making this silk purse. And money.
there’s a Troopies can be easily modified, and huge choice of aftermarket gear
