Hello I'm planning to build a camper trailer. The plan is a wooden cage on top of a 5x10 trailer, with another smaller wooden cage on top that will sandwich together.
The idea is you can fold it down for towing reducing air drag, and unfold it once in the camp site most like a pop-up camper would do.
For the rolling/unfolding system I'm still not sure how to make it, all I know is if it needs an army of people, or it takes me the whole afternoon to unfold is an automatic NO-GO.
So for 1 person doing it in 5 minutes or less without sweating a single drop (I'm a lazy guy), I'm thinking some pulleys, some garage rollers, some cables and a winch.
The trailer also have some wings that will either fold out (hinges and cables) or roll out (think a big drawer slider) to increase the sleeping people capacity.
If you have any suggestions, or you think this is a bad idea PLEASE DO tell me and explain why.
Ii'm attaching the sketch up model for your review.
Thank you for your time
Please open the model and give sggestions
