Does anyone have a teardrop camper? Curious to get your thoughts on them (real-world experience).
Kismet said:They'd be perfect for me, if I was still in my 20's or 30's and limber. Now I just wish I was and know that minimalist stuff is fine, but my body's sense of what is "minimal" has escalated a little bit.
Why, I could make one at home and save a bundle !!!
GTS225 said:It would not have to be exactly, a "teardrop". There's quite a few out there that have been fashioned as a "squaredrop", and also "CTC's", or cargo-to-camper conversions. Nothing says you can't "roll your own", as it were. Only your imagination is the limit. One of the more recent methods of construction is structural foam, laminated with 1/4" plywood for walls, and even cabinetry. (Yes, the 2" foam sold by the home improvement stores.)

(Not sure if this was tongue-in-cheek, or he really meant it.) Why, for fenders, silly! Some states require fenders on trailers.

I really kinda of like the rustic home-made trailer, but I'm old and a little...er...let's call it eccentric. :roll: :roll: :roll:
I think the washtub wheel wells are, lessee...uh...hmmm....thematically congruent.
This is supposed to be fun, guys. :lol:
I used to have a Grady White 208 with a full enclosure that we would camp in much like a teardrop. At the campground the tent was mainly to hold our spot. I had propane heat and burners and LOVED to spend a weekend in it. We would get out early and when the morning bite would slow, we would sizzle up some bacon eggs and toast and make coffee. Other fishermen would get MAD when they smelled the food on the water. I've actually had guys cuss me when I wouldn't sell them a sandwich, ha ha!
