"I" don't let NUTHIN git in the way a MY Coleman addiction !! Or any of my other addictions either..

But... a test "camp" in the driveway is a MUST !!

Heck.. I do them ALL the time ! Why jus last week I slept in it.. in the car port.. ( "I" like to call it the TEAR-PORT cause it ONLY fits the teardrop)

Congratulations! You're campable and more than half-way to complete!

Now, if the weather would only cooperate, you could take it out for an over-nighter! (Phooey on this early-in-the-season rain!)

PS. Love the name you chose for your trailer...Little House of Coffee!

Hey Kirk

Congrats on getting it campable. So your wife wants to test camp in the driveway. My wife likes that idea. All I can say is if my wife wants to test camp she better hurry up because this weekend we are camping in the great outdoors and not in the driveway. :lol: I hope :worship:

Sorry about most of my pics. I am changing the sizes they were all to large and now I am more capable of that stuff so it might be a while. All new pics wont be a problem.

First I want to say thank you to everyone on this forum who helped me, commented or just read. Thank you Mike S. for having this site and being so passionate about tiny trailers and camping. Thanks to Sharon, Cliff, Larry, Tom, Marc and everyone else who built their tears about the same time as I did.

Well here it is . Its wired, painted, road worthy and weather proof ( well kind of). Anyway we towed today and all the lights work and it towed perfectly. I did a driveway camp in it last Tuesday and all was well. Its done.

Soon we will take it on its first road trip and then off to the Dam Gathering In May.

As many of you know I have been hanging out with Doug and the Vintage Camping folks over on the Vintage Camping thread. I have a real bad case of Colemanosis. So see ya in the spring.

PS we changed the name again and I think this one is final!
