Mike,
I've always liked your WW design and I always thought the Odyssey would be cool to re-create. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with. We've put lots of miles on the Sunhopper for 7 years now, but I think I'm finally ready for something a bit larger or some kind of pop up trailer. I've been trying to re-design the Sunhopper into a standy of sorts using SketchUp. Anyway, I'll be following this thread with interest.

GPW,
Building a quick model is a great idea. I'm going to do this. :thumbsup:

After some rainy day Studio cleaning , we found some Big graph paper and am going to try and make a scale drawing to build a cardboard model “Folder” ( plus boat) from … Just to get the basic idea of what to expect, how it works … It seems simple , but there’s always something that needs “adjustment” and a drawing then scale model will help us visualize that . I’m starting with the idea of a 10' X 4’ cabin , which would make a marginally wide camper trailer and a very wide Boat ( should be really Stable in the water). Yet still not be Too Big to handle .
If we only think of a folding trailer( no boat) ,we can make it most any practical size … :thinking:
