New Vardo build

Postby prohandyman » Mon Feb 05, 2018 7:39 am

Well I think I remember saying the SlumberCoach was the last camper I would build, but you just can't keep a good man down. I bought a frame back from a guy that I sold a couple of years ago. He never got started with his project and I guess I am bored. Well...except for a herniated disc, for which I'm seeing a surgeon today, so getting sidelined before I get started. But the frame needed some welding and cutting so I at least got that done before surgery. That and the floors cut to size and undercoated, so most of the bending over is done for awhile. It is to be a Gypsy Vardo, which I always wanted to build.
6 1/2 x 12 ft, 7 ft tall. I've gotten back into wood carving so it will have lots of Gingerbread, old world style door and Windows, a porch and some crazy decorative painting. So...number 33 takes off!

Been awful slow going with the back pain but... Got he floors ready to screw down and started bending up the aluminum wheel wells. Surgery is Fri so progress comes to a halt for awhile .

Ok surgery is over and went good. Now a little rest and rehab and we will get back on this camper. Visiting a architectural salvage store later this week hopefully to look at doors, windows, etc.
