My building experience was like a bell curve. The most rewarding part was mid-build, after the pain of ordering and acquiring was done.... near the end, I just was trying to finish up the 'punch list'.....

Traveling, it was always nice to have my own bed at night..

Since I didn't build mine, I guess it's the camping part for me.

I Can honestly say that I enjoy bulding my trailer then camping. If I just enjoyed camping, I would use a tent. MAYBE I like to do both. I'm starting to get a little fruedian. :D :twisted:

Why not start up a campground where each site comes with a teardrop build kit? The fast you build, the quicker you get out dah the rain!

They need to do a new TV show... Instead of the dirtiest house, it would be the most messed up Teardrop. Then a team comes in and redoes the teardrop... You wouldn't recognize it when they are done!!! :lol:

How about the 'Torn Up Teardrop Decor Show'.

Since Kate and I didn't build our tear, we tend to spend more time decorating it. We're always picking up new and improved nic-naks and such. There might not be much room to sleep in it by next summer!

Kate would love to host the show!

I enjoy both aspects. I build at all times of the year and camp year round as well. I think they both compliment each other. Building is very rewarding and taking it out camping is where strangers tell you what a good job you did. :thumbsup: The male ego is a very complex thing.

Happy Trails

Well, I'm just starting to build and am looking forward to it but I really think I will enjoy the camping the most. We've been tenting for 20+ years now and I'm getting tired of battling (and losing) the weather.

As far as new TV shows, I would like to see a show called OVERTeardropHAULIN' where you guys all come grab all my parts, tell me it was "stolen" then return a week later with the coolest teardrop ever made.

If there is any chance of that, just remember I'd like the following:

Fridge
AC
5x10
Queen Bed
DVD & Stereo (Yeah, sort of a Pimp my Teardrop kinda thing)
Some incredible paint and graphics
Some nice bling bling on the rims

Shoot, you could throw in a nice '68 Camaro as a tow rig. Wow, you guys ARE great!!
