Thanks man! Shes coming along nicely so far I'd say, especially for having it for a few months only..
Dude, where did you find that trailer?? Or at least what is it called? I've been looking for exactly that kind of trailer. I don't need a ton of headroom, just want something small that I can take camping and sleep in. I hate packing up a wet tent because I live in a condo and have nowhere to air it out later. Also would love to take it on wheeling trips and not have to leave all my stuff out it the open at a campsite when off crawling.
Sadly, its home-made. My girlfriends parents had it for years and only used it maybe twice in 10 years.. so when I came over to her house for the first time I saw their lawn ornament and fell in love with the thing. It has its problems as you can see, but regardless its not much work and its practical! Lights work, tows straight, roof doesnt leak anymore, and its just big enough to sleep a 6'2" guy and another body just fine. I added curtains, redid the framing, added insulation, caulked all the seams, and then added some FSK moisture barrier insulation on the floor. It held up great during this past weekend with all the rain, but found I still need to seam the windows up better. Other than that, it was dry!
Its a cool rig no doubt, I dont know where you could find something like it. Ive heard about the 'teardrop' style campers, but I just happened to inherit this. And I agree about packing things up, I used to always just camp in tents, and this was a huge convenience to just wake up and drive home. Best part was passing other peoples campsites and they are rolling up their tents in the pouring rain and wind, yuck!
Heres some progress pictures before our trip out
The cat decided she wanted to get pet as I wanted to cut the plywood.. You should probably move
Stuffed the crap out of it with some ecobatt insulation
Side panel piece cut with lots o insulation too
Made the headboard and then stuffed with some padding and ofcourse you got to have matching plaid flanel!
