    I only rough sketched a design of the profile I wanted and the areas and where they would be (storage, sleeping, galley, entertainment, etc.) No plans existed except the ones in my head. As far as I know this is a one-of-a-kind camper. Good luck with your project!

    Thanks for the comment. I wasn't a physics major in school but did understand Bernoulli principles as it relates to airplane wing lift and other applications. All I can vouch for is that my profile and design helped my gas mileage tremendously and how it trailered extremely well, not sure if I lucked out or actually got something right .

This conversation also makes me wonder why bumper pull camper manufacturers never follow that teardrop design?? I don't know of anybody that does.

    Good information, Nice job! I'm starting mine now and plan to have it complete by May 2017 and hit the road for a year. Sites like yours sure do help us. I am scanning the internet finding good information, materials lists, and videos. My plans are for a reverse teardrop style but extend it to 10 or 11 feet inside (I'm 6'5" tall) I have good DIY skills and am looking forward to the end result. Thanks for doing this for us. Very good looking Tdrop, have fun in yours
