    Teardrop Camper Made of Wood

    Any truck stop near you should have a set of CAT scales. you drive up onto the platform, and wait, then for $5 it'll give you the weight.

    I was looking closely at the overall cost of the build. Just some observations, $350 for a trailer, $800 for the doors, $500 for all the electrical components, maybe $200 in plywood, and $100 in fasteners? I'm sure there's more to it than these costs, but that puts you somewhere in the $2000-$2500 range for the build.My question would be, if you had to do it all over again, would you consider buying a pre built teardrop trailer already configured, or would you build it from the ground up again?
