I think it is nice looking.

It is a kit. The price for the plans is $1. The price for the wood parts is $1299.

It is small but the vehicle I would tow it with is also small.

I really like it. :thumbsup:

Sure, I'm a 64-year-old five-wide and married kinda teardropper. But twenty years ago, I'd be buying the plans and toying with the kit.

I think it is really nice. It would be nice to tow it with my little car. http://www.clcboats.com/shop/boats/development-projects/clc-teardrop-trailer.html

There are better plans for free on this site, the lack of galley space is a big problem for me

I like it! It won't work for my intended use, but I'm taking some cues from it and incorporating them into my design.

No use talking bad about it if it doesn't work for you, because it may work for others and get them into a good design that works for them at an affordable price point.

There are many things experienced builders have pointed out about the design in other threads. Other than the slick design, and mirror finish, it doesn't have the experience of many builds, and years of tweaking, that the tried and true designs do.
The designer is not a teardrop builder with experience, though he has plenty of boat design experience. He even told me that he will incorporate the issues raised by experienced builders, into another design, if he continues that way.

Just finishing up. Once I have camped a few times in it and know everything works to my satisfaction, I will install the headliner covering the wires.ImageImageImage
