Give Up Tenting In The Rain – Build An RV Teardrop Trailer From Plans

homemade-teardrop-trailer-rv-by-dwstucke.jpgIf your tow vehicle is a lightweight SUV or other smaller car, you can still enjoy camping and traveling without resorting to a tent.

It’s time to stop sleeping on the ground.

A teardrop trailer is the perfect 2-person RV that will enable you to sleep comfortably on a regular mattress, off the ground and protected from the elements.

Best of all, at a weight of less than 1,000 pounds, almost any vehicle can tow a teardrop trailer!


Where To Get A Teardrop Trailer

You could go to an RV dealer, and just buy a manufactured teardrop trailer. But what if your budget is rather small?

The price tag for such an RV may be more than you’re willing to spend.

Another alternative is to build your own teardrop trailer from a kit or plans.  Most of what you’ll need is available at your local home center, and any specialty parts can be ordered on the Internet.

If a teardrop trailer seems too small for your needs, you can also order plans for building almost any style of RV or camper.  You’re only limited by your own construction skills.

These sources can help get you started on your own teardrop trailer RV project:

I’ve been involved in RVing for over 40 yrs -- including camping, building, repairing, and even selling RVs. I’ve owned, used, and repaired almost every class and style of RV ever made. I do all of my own repair work. My other interests include cooking at home, living with an aging dog, and dealing with diabetic issues. If you can combine a grease monkey with a computer geek, throw in a touch of information nut and organization freak, combined with a little bit of storyteller, you've got a good idea of who I am.
