A camper. With style.

« on: October 18, 2013, 08:37:58 PM »
I have been wanting to build a teardrop for a few years now. I kept putting it off for other VW projects, house projects and what not.

So this year I said the heck with it. August 7 I started. I took it camping on oct-10.

Here are a few of the progress pictures.


First cuts


Door jig


Walls up



Interior roof skin and spars



Cabinet divider



Hatch frame


Rear cabinets epoxy coat on walls


Headliner and lights


Epoxy coat


Trailer frame


Roof skin


AC plenum


Side panels and fender test fit


Door test fit

Inner


Fenders on




Tongue box w AC



Interior headboard



Hooked and ready





Using it!!




Tnttt.com has a huge resource for building these or buying a used one.

I plan on building a 9' version for sale w the extra metal I have.

Mine is 120" long 60" wide and 51" tall. The sleeping area uses a standard queen mattress. We bought one from ikea. My wife made the curtains and the headboard pillow.

Everything was built from raw materials no premade doors or panels.

It has a marine 120v/12v battery maintainer and power center. 30a 120v service and 12 12v fuse ports.

Going out again November 8-10 to Tim's ford state park.
