I have about 500 hours in this trailer. I wanted to build a cool trailer to match my truck. I also enjoy taking it camping but can’t avoid the crowds.

Very Cool Trailer! I can see where you would have 500 Hours into it. It even has an “Eavestrough” over the “Screen” door! GREAT Workmanship!! You can be Proud of this LJ Project!
I happen to like Morris Minors 1,000’s. (Rent A Wreck Logo) Probably because it was my first car, all 95cc’s of it…LOL…
I have a picture on my Computer of a completely restored 1965 Morris with a Trailer somewhat like yours. His trailer is a Morris Traveller, the “Station Wagon” version. He took off everything from the Firewall forward and redid the rest as a Trailer. Needless to say the picture is from the UK.

When I first joined this site—not long after I started butchering wood—pictures like yours were really discouraging to me.
All I could think of was … I’ll never be that good.
But now … pictures of work like you’ve done, here, ... well … they inspire me. They let me know how much I still have to learn (most of it!), and how much room to grow there is.
So … as the former owner of a 1981 Airstream, and a guy who—if SWMBO still had “camping” in her heart—would probably own a teardrop trailer …. I applaud you for a job really well done.
Thanks for spending the 500 hours, and for taking us along for the ride :-)

Cool! I’ve got a commercial ‘little guy camper’ it’s a teardrop too. I just purchased it new/used. I’m looking forward to completely remodeling it this summer and doing a cross country road trip in the fall. Very nice work btw..
I was considering building one but did a craigslist search in Maine and found one 100 miles up the road for a super price, so I couldn’t justify making one. It probably would have cost about as much in the long run. Viva la teardrops!
here's a post to my blog that has my trailer

Looking like that I can see why you can not keep the crowds away! Nice craftsmanship!

That is fantastic. I also have a Yellow SSR. I can’t wait for it to get warm enough to put the top down. I had thought about making or buying a teardrop trailer but I don’t have anyplace to store one. I will go look at your blog now.
