The Armadillo

Postby Campin' Texan » Thu Aug 15, 2013 11:48 am

A big thank you to everyone here! So much great information and ideas. I wouldn't have been able to build my teardrop if it hadn't been for this forum. I've spent the last couple months building my teardrop. It's 99% finished. I still need to add a diamond plate rock guard to the front. It's 5x10 and loosely based off the Generic Benroy plans. Here's pictures of my build. Thanks again!

I like your tile and matching accessories! :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: (To the unitiated, that is a "gig'em" emoticon rather than a "thumbs up" emoticon.)

Hope that we cross paths camping some day.

Beautiful teardrop...Love the floor. The picture of the rear side of teardrop behind the truck, going down the road, was the perfect last picture.
Thanks for sharing! May you enjoy many trips in it. :thumbsup: :applause:
