sorry been kinda quiet on here lately about the build but was going through some major tooth pain and getting ready for some major work on my teeth to fix some issues starting the 1st.

but anyway i may scrap the teardrop for now cause i just became the new owner of a 1976 starcraft pop up camper. its a little rough but fixable and useable



will get more pics once i fix the busted lift cable on the front corner


cant beat $100 price tag

use it or take some of the interior pieces like the fridge, etc and use it in the one you're building. we got one for like 100 bucks, scrapped everything out of it, got our money back..and then had the trailer itself for fun.

I am currently in the process of modifying an old pop-up trailer frame to serve as a Tiny Travel Trailer and Boy Scout Gear Trailer. Soon I hope to be put up a build journal on TTT.net. Good luck on whichever way you go.

My uncle basically gave me a pop-up camper, set it up and everything BUT the canvas is in great shape. Lot's of great stuff (stove, sink, frame, etc) to build my tear drop on. Mines going to have 12v and 120v. A/c, tv, windows, etc.

I love the tear drops. TNTT is a must visit forum if you're planning on building a tear drop!
