Camper Trailer DIY Answered

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?


I don't know if this helps, or if you're still interested... but here is a page...
good luck :)

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.

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.
