Welcome to a pretty great forum.
Figuring out the size you need seems to determine everything, eh? I'm about to start converting a cargo trailer to a combo camper/cargo trailer. (not nearly as much fun as building a teardrop, but time as well as space is dictating what I do...) I like the idea of standing up , but also like the idea of a camper being simple enough and/or small enough that I never hesitate to take it with me.
Also - I grew up mostly in Sterling, actually.
Anyhow, welcome, and cheers!
lost, but enjoying it so far.
