My camper sleeps two in a queen size bed, and one in the dinette/twin bed.
Hector modded his to sleep four, I believe. It's just under 7' by 12'. I can slouch in ours. I'm 6'2".

Yes, the original manual. Steve thanks for the thumbs up! Means a lot coming from you. We would never have started, much less finished, if it wasn't for your manual. We promote it to anyone who expresses a serious interest in building. I know we rare responsible for at least two purchases here on the west coast! ;)

I was just looking at this and realize that the ShopManual is now 8-years old
and I've sent it all over the world.
Thanks to all for the support!

Hey! Merry Christmas!
For anyone interested; until the end of January, buy the ShopManual and get the Rondack Lodge plans free. Just order the manual. Don't order the bundle.

Steve..I would imagine it is a great accumulation of detailed info for the inexperienced wood worker( you know things we take for granted yet can't quite put into precise words)...Congradulations on the contribution to the DIY :applause: Having been in this field for over 30 yrs I can relate to a lot of the building system you have come up with....And we have somethig else incomon.......

First Post here! I thought I would revive the thread and say that I bought the shop manual after reading the info about it. I'm going to use it to get an idea of how to build the trailer, I'm a pretty handy guy but I need some guidance on the design so I don't pick an odd dimension that will throw off the whole project. I'm sure the $$ will be worth it in the long run!
