Grasshopper profile/dimensions?

Postby kludge » Tue Sep 22, 2020 9:56 am

Does anyone have dimensions of the Grasshopper? Can't find a good/accurate source here or googling. I'm not looking to rip it off or clone it, just wanting to have a starting point for comparison.

TIA

I have been working in an idea for a trailer for our son and his family. With this size of trailer, I suggest you follow the build of Shawnee Hills Workshop. His off road trailer has some really good ideas for making a trailer of this size. https://www.shawneehillsworkshop.com/

The pop top and the shower will be greatly appreciated on a short trip, but really loved on a long excursion. A rainy day with 2 kids and the pop top might even save your sanity.

A few things I would consider changing, it is HOT here in Texas, so a good AC is not an accessory, it is mandatory. The shower, as discussed on another thread needs a base and waste water collection system. An enclosed vestibule/screen porch would also be nice.
