I thought I show you the first one I did. All three are here so you can see the evolution of my work.

A nice elderly lady bought this and I warned her that she would get a lot of attention at the campgrounds. A couple months later she had it for sale. She hated all the people coming over to see it and had to keep the bed made. Wonder what ever happen to it.

Wow. I’ve always wanted to build one of these. I just can’t talk the wife into it… Soame old song and dance there, I guess.

Any details on the chassis?

Trailers one and two were on a Habor Freight Frame.

#3 was a old frame that a buddy had in his driveway. It had a 4 inch drop axle and would allow for the larger wheels and fenders.

The sleeping area, the bed is 6’5” x 4”. Plenty of room. Remember it is built on a 4×8 sheet of plywood so it you are really tall you have smaller drawers in the galley.

Nice 2 night weekend unit. I like it was built on inexpensive frame. Propane and a/c would make it wonderful for summer night sleeping. Thank you for sharing.
