Here is the worlds FIRST, man made, MAN CAVE CAMPER. The pictures don’t do it justice.
Title is clear and in my name.
I do have the insides and outsides finished and after eight months of hard labor I will sell it.
Everything shown is included pertaining to the trailer.
This will turn heads where ever you go. Great for showing off, having a food stand, or draw a crowd at flea markets.
Almost everything is new, wiring, lights, except the metal frame.
New remote control 5,000 BTU -AC. New roof vent on the back of camper.
This is designed to sleep two people, good retirement or sight seeing trailer. Lightweight.
Living area is 7’x11’. Trailer is 16’ long
The exterior and interior is hand carved faux rock from coated styrene material.
Exterior Coated with a mixture of concrete, grout, sand and exterior latex paint.
The ceiling is custom made from styrene and finished in a ASTANA Bronze/Black paint finish.
The wood frame, floor and roof are all coated with water proofing inside and out exterior plywood. Roof seams are fiberglassed.
All new material.
This is put together using 99% coated screws. IT IS SOLID. I only used a few ring type nails to hold a piece to another piece until I could get a screw in it.
Now it has a new, vinyl tile floor and new 13” wheels. Better and stronger.
Also features,
(1) Five gallon waste water tank. (1) Five gallon fresh water tank.

Turn heads? Man you have said a mouthful. Everywhere I go like Wal-mart, I come out to a astounded crowd of people complementing me. (blush, blush.) It is an attention getter.

Looks like a good place to park and eat “Brontoburgers” You just need to get Wilma and Betty to sign up as your cooks. ;-)

Where’s the ‘Big’ screen at? I see the beer cooler and AC and loungers…

Maybe add a DVD projector and roll down screen hung over the door to save space… Just a thought.

Nice job but I’m a little light on funds to make anything but an insulting bid. However, my wife thinks that you could get a good offer from these guys.
