The quality is remembered long after the price is forgotten, so build your teardrop with the best materials...

Is it a 'Type 3' in the US?

Of course, this would suit a small 'square', rather than a teardrop!

Welcome Keeble 81,
You are going to need more than a day to read through the stuff on here. May I suggest you look through the Hall of Fame and the builds listed there first. Then you can get into todays posts and work your way back. By the time you finish you will be both addicted and finished with your TD. 8) :lol:

The picture supply is gettin low so :pictures: ;)

I can see the theory that this is easy, but I think it's a lot more work in reality and the end result is far from ideal - it's not very big inside, the wheels are too far back, the doors are too narrow, the floor's not level and the whole thing weighs a huge, huge amount.

Apart from that, it's ideal! :hammerhead:
