he uses zip ties to stitch them together how does that not leak?Kenp51 wrote:I have seen several Youtube videos of coroplast bicycle trailer camper variants.
Here is one.
I think cost could be cut down.
I would be very reluctant to have a fire or heat source in or real near one of these DEPENDING on the homeless person. But then there are those who would be fine. Judgment call. Would not want to see someone hurt themselves.
I see a lot of homeless where I live. Some have bicycles with cobbled together trailers that the use to scavenge with. Maybe some added carry capacity or even tow a second trailer for that purpose (a tractor double trailer micro rig ).
Scavenged coroplast signs are readily available in campaign season.

Sure seams it would leak. Maybe duct tape over?
There are other fasteners that that would work but cost more.
I have seen numerous homeless around here that could benefit from some sort of portable shelter. We have a homeless fellow that sometime shows up at our church that preaches and ministers to other homeless people. I think he has enough on the ball to keep and maintain a portable shelter.
I am not physically able to build anything at the moment. Treasonous body!
I see a fair number of couples. That would be a tougher project to build a portable shelter for. Width. To wide reduces portability in some ways But maybe not as much of a problem as I think?
