6x10 Cedar Benroy

Postby bam1028 » Wed Sep 28, 2016 8:36 pm

This will be our second trailer build. The first was a 4x8. Lots of fun but Im kinda of a big guy and I wanted more room. The first camper was just a shell no hatch. It helped us decide what we wanted and needed in the second build. We are not to far along but this is me trying to catch up.

How are your walls constructed? Is that 1\4 cedar tongue and groove over 1\2 inch ply glued? Looks great thanks for posting.[SMILING FACE WITH SMILING EYES]

That is going to get some attention in the camp ground! I like that wall paper too.

That is going to be a real beauty when finished. Heck, it is a beauty now! And yep, you will find it very difficult to get out of a campground, gas station, any parking lot without lots of comments, desires for tours and wishes for photos!
