We have started

I have introduced myself in the newbie area. Started on our build journey this weekend. Kinda cheated by buying a partially done teardrop. See the pictures below. So this weekend is covering front and roof with plywood. So after reading a lot on this forum, decided to by 1/4" Wobble wood for front curve. Going with long bend, with 1 seam down the front as teardrop is 60" wide. Going with Titebond 3 for the wood & Elmer's Ultimate for wood to Styrofoam.

More pictures to come tomorrow hopefully

Good luck. How did you find a partially built one? Was that a plan or just an opportunity?

It was on kijiji, was looking for a utility trailer, and it popped up. The builder inherited a truck camper so decided not to finish it. It needs roof, front skinned (finished that this weekend). Was the walls, and almost all major construction done on a trailer already.
