I’ve come up with a new design for a Tent Topped Camping Trailer. Similarly to my Explorer Box, it’s compact and tailored to smaller vehicles. For this one, the front galley area has been removed and replaced with a nose box.
As with the Explorer Box; it uses a glue and screw construction method with corner blocks. The screws are used as clamps during gluing and left in place for added strength. I use trim head screws to minimize the hole size and avoid the extra step of counter sinking the holes. For durability I used a roll-on bed liner material to coat the exterior.
