I Made it Myself

The Invaluablist Teardrop Camping Trailer

I designed the Invaluablist Teardrop camping trailer based on photographs and information researched on the internet. It was not built from a kit, although I would have much preferred that route. Nevertheless, the entire inspiration for the trailer, including its shape and its systems, came from existing teardrop designs. I assembled most of it myself, although a few friends helped me with some of the bigger jobs, especially with welding the frame together and some of the other heavy lifting. I purchased most of the parts and components from hardware stores and home centers, relying on a few more specialized suppliers for things like marine grade plywood and the exterior aluminum skin.
