Very cool!!absolutsnwbrdr wrote:I thought that starting a thread for my second build would make a pretty good 1,000th post, so here we go! I really can't believe its only be a year and a half since I built my first teardrop! I've learned so much from everyone on here, so I thank you all!
My new teardrop design is very similar to my original convertible (the Scuttlebutt) just because I love that trailer so d@mn much! This new design is just bigger.
Its going to be built on the same 1720lb 4x8 Harbor Freight trailer, but will be just over 5 feet wide, and 10 feet long. It will be 54" tall, not including the fan cover. The additional size allows for a queen size bed, more underfloor storage, a dedicated electrical compartment, and much more galley storage! These sketches are actually from my AutoCAD model, and in the galley I have placed (2) Coleman 50qt. coolers, and a little extra something, just to show the amount of room I will have available.
Sawdust is not in the immediate future, as I need to make room by selling my current teardrop. I'd realistically like to start building in late October or early November, and finish in April.
I already have my entire parts/material list written down. And when I say entire, I mean ENTIRE list. From carriage bolts to the exact number of sheets of plywood and oak boards. Everything is already laid out in AutoCAD and I have an incredibly detailed model that I've been working on.
Needless to say, I'm really freakin' excited!
