My hombuilt teardrop recumbant trike camper

Postby doris s. » Sat Aug 12, 2017 9:52 pm

I built a teardrop camper for my recumbent trike. It weighs 65 lbs. I built the trailer with 1x2s and thin plywood. The sides are made of coroplast.

That's great! :thumbsup:

I take it that there is somewhere nearby that you can cycle to and camp?

Yes, I'm going to cycle and camp on the C&O canal. It's not far from where I live. Lots of camping on the Potomac River.

The floor dimensions are 40" wide overall but the sleeping area is 30" wide because of the wheel wells. The length is 6' 2". I am 6' so I sized it for me. The side walls at the tallest point is 42" I wanted to be able to sit up inside.
