This is a little teardrop I built two summers ago. Built on a 5×8 four wheeler flatbed. The wood stove does double duty in my portable shop. This was a fun build but took 168 hours. The mahogany butterfly skylight was almost 40 of it.

That’s very nice Jessy. Imagine your boat building experiences really helped.

Great work. The skylight was well worth it.

Very nice trailer. I built one a few years ago but not nearly as nice as yours.

That is a great looking tear drop camper. The stove really makes it look like a vintage camper.

There is a Corp of engineers camping area near here that has a retro, small camper weekend that is a big hit. Plenty of nice tear drop campers like this one as well as vintage campers. It’s always fun to go through and look at the different versions and see the creativity.

Pretty nice and comfy to. I would think you would have to have a small fire or you would roast yourself out.

For me I would love to have a few acres in WY or MT with a small stream to go fishing at. I was real spoiled while stationed in Mt for 8 years and all that time I never got my elk but helped 12 others get theirs during Bow season.

Arlin, the elk hunting is good in the Bighorns. They have fed my kids many winters. Where were you stationed?
