Starleen2's #7

Postby starleen2 » Thu Jul 27, 2017 11:46 am

After a long self imposed hiatus on building, I finally have clearance from Mrs Starleen2 to build # 7. Our adventure into New England meant that we had to sell the Texas trailer. We only used it twice in four years and you had to take the axle off to get it in the garage and out of the heavy snow. Now we have a much bigger garage and milder climate. Also my needs have changed somewhat - where there used to be three of us - there are now going to be six,(4 adults - two grandkids) so this will no be a small build nor do I want it to be a full sized Camper either. I do like the appearance of a small slipstream vs the full sized RV's. This one is going to be a 12 footer. Before we left Texas I built a small 12 footer for a friend with a dropped floor so I kind of have an idea of what to build. I plan on using an existing trailer frame, skinning the exterior with aluminum, and the roof will be edpm rubber roofing material Space will be tight with all of us. Remember we only use the camper to sleep in and get out the rain when necessary - most of the time we are sitting outdoors under an easy - up canopy :thumbsup:
