I agree with Andy, that certainty is impressive

Looking good Terry. Bigger than I thought. Good to have something to focus on while COVID-19 plays havoc with our lives.

What will you tow it with?   Looks like it might be too heavy even for the Goldwing trike?

I wanted a teardrop but never had the funds to buy one (or spent them on something else!) but I have to say I'm really happy with my campervan now!

Your better off with the campervan BG. Im only building this like you seen and liked them but the price was out of my range. Im retiring next year and want to do so touring in the uk. if i dont like it i can sell and may be start up building small teardrops Grin

For a project that wasn't spose to be started until i retire next year. it got brought forward for one reason and another. I started it back in May been working when i can. Well its now finished need to test run it and get it weighed not that i need to its just to see if my original calculations are close i was looking for about 220kg. the nose weight is 30kg i want to get this down to 15/20kg but will sort that out when loaded. They say you get hooked on projects i think im hooked Mk2is in the planning stages as there are a few things i would change. but for now im going to test this one out hopefully a next years shows and meets. Take care

That looks very professional mate. Nice.
I can't remember if you've already said -is it insulated & ventilated? What would you change?

Hi Andy yes it is roof and floor vents the roof is insulated not the floor or sides.
Changes would be about 5ft wide this one is 3ft 10" only because it was built on an old tt chassis. the back galley kitchen i will try and put it on the side as a pull-out unit. May fit solar power but not bothered if it not . and this one will be IVA tested

I'm curious to see how difficult it is to IVA these teardrops -I suspect most aren't tested at all.
