4x9 squaredrop with half bath

Postby Mark Williamson » Wed Jan 04, 2023 7:07 am

This is my second build based on lessons learned from the first. It has a 6x4 sleeping compartment and roughly 2x4 bathroom. The bathroom has hot/cold faucet and shower, and a toilet. Four foot ceiling. Here are the features:

* Skinned in 1/4" sanded ply (inside), 1/2" foam with 1/2" framing, and FRP on exterior. Very sturdy and light.
* Doors are scratch and dent cargo doors. $80 each from Affordable RVing. Will add latches.
* Bought window frames and added lexan from the old camper.
* Propane on demand water heater.
* Bathroom has sliding privacy door and dome over toilet for headroom. Shower sitting down.
* Tiled bathroom floor. Only $4! Cheapest and quickest tile job I ever did. Used construction adhesive and caulk. Very sturdy. Slopes to the drain.
* Water and sewage tanks about five gallons each. Gray water tank will be external.
* Wired for AC and DC. LED lights in cabin, external, bathroom and galley.
* Galley has butane stove, waffle/egg maker, faucet, sink and storage. Folds down in rear.
* Storage cubbies at head of bed and shelf above. Heater built into shelf.
* Tv with DVD.

My four cylinder Honda struggled pulling the old one so hoping this will do better. It should be much lighter and will sit lower.

More photos. 4x6 trailer with beefed up wheels. 13" trailer wheels. No need for spacers. The spare is the old 12".
