Hi Dan--

I'm a newbie to, well, pretty much everything--teardrops, carpentry, Sketchup--and I just wanted to thank you for your excellent and thorough youtube series on SketchUp. I spent all morning trying to figure out how to translate the Grumman's curves into SketchUp, only to discover that you had already done it. I've learned a ton from your series. I'll try making my own from scratch following your instructions, and if I can't make a go of it, I'll edit (mangle?) your file instead, which should get me where I need to be. Thanks so much!!

Hey Guys,
I am new to all this too but I do like your Grumman designs. When I build I'm leaning towards a 5X10 (over all trailer 14 feet) in a true tear design like that one. I don't know if you have seen this Wyoming style before but here is the link I found. I just wish the designer had it in a 5X10 instead of 5X8 or someone could re-design or admin to it (stretch it out) somewhat.????

If that link doesn't work try http://www.teardropbuilder.com It appears to have a sketch up design plan attached with it as well. Let me know if this helps or if anyone can pull off a 5X10 for me in a Wyoming or Grumman style.
Thanks D.Mooseman

There's a 10-footer in the design resources:
