We are in the process of completely replacing the galley in this teardrop. It is a homemade trailer so it goes without saying that it is NOT square. I have used popular sticking to build the frames in place.In the picture the drawers are layed out and in place. As you can see from the second picture, the wall slopes to the right. That made for some real challenging drawer fitting. I will finish the framework using wild cherry. Next comes the upper cabinets and work area.

A teardrop trailer is one of those projects I really want to build. They are a bit on the cramped side though. I need to figure out how to build a teardrop for 4. (Mom, dad and a couple of munchkins).

This might sound like a silly question, but why not square it up?

Since the skin is metal formed over 2 sheets of 3/4” plywood I decided I didn’t want to start from scratch with the trailer because I have many on-going projects. This way we can still have the shell for camping. There are larger teardrop trailers with a queen-size bed and 2 bunk-beds. Mine has a regular-sized mattress in the sleeping compartment.
