We bought a home made teardrop camper from someone back in October. We are setting out on our first real trip next weekend!

Hi and welcome. Best wishes for your upcoming first trip. I Checked out your tear on your album and that is a good looking tear you bought. As to covering mentioned in one of your post a friend of ours , desertmoose , covered his with canvas drop cloth from harbor freight , dirt cheap , adhered with titebond glue . He and wife live in Carson City Nv so tear is exposed to extremes of heat and cold and no problems for many years. Anyway please update us with outcome of your trip. Lee and Norma Twin Falls, Idaho p.s. what area are you located in ?

Congratulations. Keep in mind that everything you forgot can be bought, if you aren't too far out in the boonies. That's what a shakedown cruise is for - to safely find out what's missing !

Lee, we are located in West Virginia!

I am seriously considering putting the canvas and titebond covering on the roof of our Tear drop. Just wish I could find instructions on how to do it.

Looking forward to our trip this weekend.
