Driving me nuts.

Postby catsmith » Fri Nov 17, 2017 10:59 am

Help please. I have looked at hundreds of builds in the last months. There is one I really like and want to find again. I thought it was a foamie but maybe not.

It was on a old bass boat trailer, built the camper between the wheel wells. Even added steps or runners outside the frame that came out to the wheel wells.

For some reason, I think he got the trailer free because there were plenty after the years of bad weather in South Louisiana.

I want to do something similar.

Aaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh! Killing me! :cry: :cry: :?

Thanks for any clues on where to find it. Happy early Thanksgiving.

Sounds like Glen's foamstream.

Got me wondering too … Nice boat trailer like that … :thinking:

It used to be easy to follow Foamies , but it’s been some time now … Many built … Maybe we need a Foamie Hall of Fame (for Everybody !) ? Just to keep track of all these . :thinking:
There’s no place like Foam !

Does it look like any of these? https://www.pinterest.com/pin/498914464 ... 9/?lp=true

Was it a teardrop or a standee?

There *is* a foam builds roundup sticky, which I think was meant to be a list of all of the build threads for exactly this reason. Going through and making a new one or updating that one so that it’s up to date just takes someone willing to undertake the time and effort, I think.

Possibly the same one I've been looking for. Standie with rear entry, toilet closet to left of entry, galley to right,center walkway lowered to boat frame, possibly a murphy bed forward. That one? Don't believe it was a foamie.

That may be it. Or maybe I dreamed it and should build it! :oops:

Send a PM to the builder and ask if they have any pics or details that they can share.
