Another guy that’s onboard

Postby BigDave_185 » Mon Oct 23, 2017 10:00 pm

I am not into this teardrop trailer build but.... I am in love with this idea of turning my enclosed trailer into the greatest toy hauler That meets me and families needs.

We are a motocross Family, camping family and big into Boy Scouts. I have camped in massive motorhomes awesome toy haulers, heated tents and under the stars on camp ground tables. I am happy to be making something new and of high quality that is something my family can continue to enjoy for many years.

I have four kids, 18 girl, 10 boy, twin 2yr boys, married for a bunch of years.

I have a 24 foot element look, with a 36 inch man door, and a fold down door. 5k axles.

Looking to insulate, add some Murphy beds of some sort and than water and electrical. We will see where else it goes

Hi BigDave-185

I'm a newbie here myself, but I love the thought of buying a longer cargo trailer. Your 24 footer seems like plenty of space to make an awesome camper! :thumbsup:

I'm really looking forward to following your build.

My trailer is currently on hold, we sold the house, loaded all belongings into and crashed the grandmas party house. It’s loaded 100% front to back, bottom to top with the home belongings. New home construction to start in a few months.

Like you I am waiting to clean her out and do all the awesome things I have read about.

Doing some $ figuring

Question,

What insulation do most people install on the roof and walls. Ceiling in my trailer has a slight curve/bow
Suggestion?

2nd
I have enough roof space for 5 solar panels but my solar source says three, four, six not five. He can get me about $0.80 a watt. And about $6k to invest in framing, panels, inverter, and batteries.

Why would I invest 6k in solar when I can get a generator for lots less ?

You are going to have the best luck getting answers over in the "Cargo Trailer Conversion" section.
