Camper Trailer DIY

My husband has this obsession with building his own camper trailer. Does anyone know the proper way to go about this, or have any suggestions?

If he hasn't decided on what type of camper to build, have him check out WWW.Glen-L.com for some ideas and access to plans. If it's a teardrop that he wants then have him check out WWW.Kuffelcreek.com. Hope this helps

The best way is don't!

Caravans are a curse on all things automobile - they slow up traffic, block lanes, hamper carparks and blow over on the motorway, scattering beige cushions and crockery all over the place.

If you are unable to camp in a proper tent, stay in a hotel.

Arr ! Back to your Vardos !
Compact: what a cool site (cttct.com)! Thanks! 

JKW0322: here's a video for how one person built a tear-drop:

by now you've probably found lots of teardrop options...Keep thinking and creating!

Check out www.cttct.com , lots of good home-built camping trailer information and a construction manual for a tent topped camping trailer

Goodhart- Thank you for the suggestion. I have been to that site already. I particularly liked the seventies pictures of someone's grandpa proudly showing off his new trailer.

This set of plans could work I believe.
Ignore Kiteman, obviously he was traumatized as a child by a wayward camper. If I were to build one I'd start with a Teardrop trailer

Small enough to garage build, I even saw one once made of cedar and finished bright, twas a thing of beauty.

Search around the net, there are plans.
