    I had a request for a build thread on my Teardrop trailer my wife and I built together (2 years ago now). I'm not going to layout the entire build (I will link to the build threads she and I have posted elsewhere).
    The CrowsWing OffRoad Teardrop on Expedition Portal (mine)
    The CrowsWing, So Long and Thanks for all the Fish on TNTTT (hers) Suffice to say, she designed the entire thing on SketchUp, we had a custom frame built for us and we did the rest.

    It's an "Off Road" Benroy style teardrop trailer (we named it the CrowsWing as it allows us to fly to all the shiny spots in the country we want to see). Complete with a near queen size bed, basement storage for all our camping gear, full kitchen with a refrigerator, oven/stove, wine rack and granite tile counter-top.

    One of our many West Virginia trips

    My wife enjoyed building the trailer so much she even wrote a book about it. The Teardrop Year

    Thanks!

    So awesome! I know once I show the wife this she'll want one. We've talked about getting an airstream. Nice work!
