Neat concept. I thought of an A-liner for a long time, but ultimately decided to build a teardrop.
Done? Surely you jest. A teardrop is never "done".

The Compass Rose build thread: viewtopic.php?t=23213

Inspiration: http://tnttt.com/Design_Library/Trailer%20for%20Two.htm

It's got a cop motor, it's got cop tires, cop suspensions, cop shocks.

Also, the Cabin is setting on 2x4's to allow us to set the side walls at the same level as the bottom of the floor section.

I think that is coming along great. It is going to turn into a great finished build.

The lower body is fully skinned! Now it's starting to look like I imagined.

Here's a view from where the door will be located. Obviously the cross braces will be cut out before installing the door. I think it's time for a tall cold one!
:beer:
Next step, after cleaning up the garage, will be mocking up the bed frame and the cabinets. Unfortunately, Vacation is over and back to work tomorrow... It may be a few weeks before posting more progress.
