Tailgate removal

Postby zildjian » 30 Jul 2017 12:57

Substantial lump of steel (around 20KG)
in terms of support it adds little benefit to camper, most of us remove them to decrease weight at rear of vehicle

Some tailgates have a camera installed, some have a third brake light too, most have check-straps or chains to prevent them falling completely open onto rear bumper, most of them are held on by a couple of bolts either end
and a multi plug for anything powered inside.

Our service van has a clever move-able 'wall' in the back allows heavy cabinet fitters tools in roll boxes to be pushed against it or pull some of these pins out of looting holes in floor to carry large finished items (desks, cabinets etc)

something like the smaller of these two
