The Handmade Trailer - Design and Build a Classic Tiny Camper from Scratch
Hit the road in style and comfort you built yourself...
The road trip has been a celebrated American tradition for as long as there have been roads on which to travel. Combined with our love of the great outdoors, hitting the road in search of some peace under the stars is a goal for anyone old enough to drive -- even more so in today's hectic, wired world. Millennials and retiring boomers want to take a break, especially one that reflects their ever increasing simple and minimal mindset. Enter the Teardrop Trailer. First designed in 1930's for cars lacking power, they've remerged as a smart, aerodynamic, and eye-catching option for seeking out the quiet beauty that camping offers...but with plenty of comfort. Think of the tiny house movement going camping...
Matt Berger's book The Handmade Teardrop Trailer: Design & Build a Tiny Classic Camper from Scratch hands you the keys to craft your own stylish adventure. The Handmade Teardrop Trailer guides you through the journey from sketchbook to first road trip, and will prepare you to design and build your own comfortable pull-behind Tiny Trailer. And, to achieve this you don't need much space, just a garage bay or shared workspace, and the most basic tools and materials available at your nearby hardware store or home center.
Because we all have our own "get away from it all" road-trip fantasies when it comes to comfort, style, and purpose, The Handmade Teardrop Trailer will train you up like a pro on the basics of trailer design, backed up by deep research and experimentation. Illustrations provide measurements and construction details that are easy to adapt for variations in size and configuration and more than 100 step-by-step photos illuminate every detail in the design and build process. With this handy guide leading the way, you'll be shutting down the computer, storing the cellphone, and hitting the road to find some peace in a classic tiny trailer camper you built by yourself.
