If you are planning your trailer, this is the point in the process where you really have to think far, far ahead so that everything will be where it needs to be when you get down the road.
This is the first video in a series where I’m going to cover, from start to finish, with videos, how to build your very own teardrop camper. Let me first say that this is in no way the only way to do it, this is just the way I’ve done it and I am happy with the results. My videos … Read More
Well, if you have been reading my blog for a while now, you know that among other things, we really like to camp. Part of our camping adventure is that I built our Teardrop (ish) camper that we currently camp in. I started a series of posts a while back that covered the what and how of our camper build. … Read More
The roof of our camper was built in a few easy step. Since were are using the “inside out” method of construction, we actually put the inside ceiling in before we added the framing. After we assembled the walls, one of the last things that we did was to cut a small strip of wood out of the top of the side walls. This would provide a ledge of sort for the ceiling to sit on once the walls were stood up.
Well, it has been a while since we returned, so I figured it was about time to do a Road trip roundup of our adventures this summer.

As a result, we were able to run the wires inside the wall, completely hidden from view. Also, we were able to insulate the walls and make … Read More
It was seem as though the options for building a floor for your teardrop camper would be relatively straight forward, but you actually have quite a few options here. The name of the game when building your camper is weight and space. It’s a balance, and if you want space, you almost always have to sacrifice weight. Materials used add … Read More
This past weekend, we decided it was time to take the teardrop camper out for a little fun. Actually, we decided this about 2 months ago, and even then, we were a little late to the game. We first looked (as we always do) at the state parks. We have stayed in a few Florida state parks in the past, … Read More
I was recently contacted by the folks at Point Elevate, asking if I would review the Elevate Grill. Heck yes! I have been looking for a new portable gas grill to take camping with us, and the Elevate Grill seemed to fit the bill pretty well. The Elevate Grill Specs: 286 sq inches of cooking surface Fold up design Easy setup … Read More
